Calvin Harris looks to preemptively put the summer on smash with star-studded collab.

Coming off a chart-climbing collaboration with Migos and Frank Ocean, Calvis Harris clearly has no intentions of slowing his roll. It appears Harris has activated some sort of hitmaker signal beacon and summoned the assistance of Young Thug, Pharrell Williams, and Ariana Grande for his upcoming single “Heatstroke.” While we don’t have an official drop date, hhnm speculates a late March release. Judging from the track’s title, one might assume the song’s intended goal is to take over the summer, becoming globally ubiquitous in clubs, beach parties, and barbecues.Harris has shared the song’s official artwork and production credits, which you can find below.

Although he’s not sitting at the coveted #1 spot on the Hot 100 chart, odds are Big Sean is celebrating all the same while his single “Bounce Back” settles in at #6, the highest position a single of his has ever attained in the course of his career. The song comes from his recent album, I Decided., which actually did nab the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, selling over 151,000 equivalent album units in the first week.

The last time a single of his came this close to the top slot was in 2012, when “Dance (A$$)” with Nicki Minaj landed at #10 and in 2014, when “IDFWU” with E-40, hit #11. Combined with the song’s catchy hook and the religious symbology utilized in the video, “Bounce Back” has already racked up nearly 47 million views on YouTube.

Seven additional singles from I Decided. also charted on the Hot 100, including “No Favors” (featuring Eminem) at #22, “Moves” at #38, “Sacrifices (featuring Migos) at #70, “Halfway Off The Balcony” at #74, “Jump Out the Window” at #76, “Owe Me” at #86, and “Light (featuring Jeremih)” at #97. Now that’s something that deserves a “hallelujah.”

Mariah Carey has bounced back from her disastrous New Year’s Eve performance with a new single, “I Don’t,” featuring YG. Dubbed “an anthem for women overcoming harsh breakups,” the Jermaine Dupri-produced track is anything but a love song. Instead, it finds a fired up pop star looking back with a tinge of regret as she sings about her past lover. At the same time, it’s clear she’s empowering herself (and perhaps other women) along the way. Paired with YG’s contributions, it’s a delicate balance of R&B laced pop and rap. Listen below.
