Day Four of My Week with Calvin Harris and today its the single 'Bounce'.
Bounce is a Calvin Harris track, but it features Kelis on vocals instead of himself. Bounce was the first single from his album 18 months. The single was released in 2011, the album the following year in 2012.
Interestingly, before releasing this album, Calvin claimed to be done with singing. Instead he chose other artists on his tracks. This single was the first released when he was not the vocalist.
Kelis, it has to be said, is a great choice. She sounds fab against Harris' quirky and in fact "bouncy" track. Its another dance-pop number, but you can tell when you hear a CH track. It has all these electro sort of synthesiser sounds, a good beat, a pulse if you will, but somehow his tracks always sound different to the general dance output.
The video is some young men and women, chilling out, sitting on battered sofa outside, and generally chilling, before we see Kelis dancing and being filmed, whilst one of the guys tries to dance around behind her! Its ok, its nothing memorable. The song is better.
I loved this song when it came out, and had it as my ring tone for a period. It was good to listen to again, as its been a while since I heard it. It still sounds as great as it did then. Go take a listen and let me know what you think.
