The new album, “Funk Wav Bounces Vol.2”, has a release date for August 5th and we can say that its promotion has already started to happen for some time with the publication made in advance of the track “Potion”, a partnership DJ’s with Dua Lipa and Young Thug.
Discover the song that came along with a very well produced music video:
The track can also be scored as a part two of Dua and Calvin’s musical encounter, after they released the track “One Kiss” about four years ago. About “Potion”, the DJ expressed a deep affection for the singer and the friendship between the two: “Dua Lipa is my favorite person to work with; the voice, the work ethic, the banter, I feel very lucky to have been able to do that with her,” he said.

The very lively song with the power to take anyone off the ground arrived along with its clip with striking beats in a beachy sphere, even paradisiacal, with strong colors and neon lights.
