Fans of Baylani have something new to be excited about today.
Platinum DJ/producer Calvin Harris has released his anticipated new album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. The 10-track LP is loaded with exciting collaborations, including the track “Faking It” featuring Kehlani and Lil’ Yachty.
The mid-tempo track may be the perfect example of the album’s title, with it’s funky bassline and “My Boo” style bounce. Lani rides the track with perfection as she sings out to an ex-lover who she can’t get out of her mind, and ponders why he keeps checking in with her.
“Nowadays I’m just a bitch to everybody else / I don’t need no shoulders I’m good crying by myself,” she sings. “Moving on is a chore ’cause you know I still adore ya / An unrequited love is just a lover’s hell.”
Lil’ Boat comes in on the third verse adding that while he’s been making millions on the road, the success is fleeting without the girl he truly loves. “I need counseling from my moms, she’s a heartbreak teacher,” he raps.
Funk Wav Bounces, Vol. 1 features guest appearances by Frank Ocean, Migos, Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Snoop Dogg, Big Sean, Future, John Legend and more.
