New Music - Bounce

Calvin Harris ft. Kelis - Bounce
Album: TBA (2011)

Calvin Harris seems like a pretty cool dude. His music's not completely to my taste, but I don't look at him and think douche bag like when I look at David Guetta. Harris has teamed with the criminally under appreciated Kelis for new single, 'Bounce,' a song that sadly does neither act any favours. Kelis maintained her 'voice' for lack of a better word when she turned dance-queen for her last album, but there's no sign of her personality here. Listening to 'Bounce' without any prior info, I wouldn't even guess it was her singing on the track. Harris himself appears to be phoning it in. Where's the original beats found in 'Ready For The Weekend,' 'The Rain' or even 'Dance Wiv Me?' Sadly, this actually sounds like a David Guetta song. I'll forgive Calvin this time, but he's treading a fine line between being pretty cool... and being a douche bag.

Rating: 1.5/5
