I’ve become a big fan of Khalid over the last few months, so of course seeing his name in the latest Calvin Harris immediately turned me on to the possibilities of how delicious it could truly be–and I am happy to say Rollin is everything wonderful you could want to expect.
I’ve never been much of a Future fan (although I respect his work), so the bits of Rollin featuring Khalid are obvious favorites. The funky synthwork, piano line and bassline are all huge selling points for me, but Khalid’s vocals really seal the deal. At only 19 years old, Khalid has an incredibly bright future in front of him and I can’t wait for what else is in store.
Oh, should we talk about the forthcoming album from Calvin Harris that the mau5 had some words on previously? I personally cannot wait to hear what else is in store–yes, it’s likely to be different from what he has done in the past (re: dance music), but at the end of the day, good chunes are good chunes. Ain’t nobody going to take that away from him. Let’s wait for the album to drop to develop opinions.
