Calvin Harris’ new single “Potion,” featuring Young Thug and Dua Lipa, has a video. THE SCOTTISH DJ PARTNERS WITH THE DISCO-POP QUEEN AND THE RAPPER ONCE MORE.
It’s been four years since Dua Lipa and Calvin Harris teamed up to make “One Kiss,” a midsummer smash song. They’ve reunited for a new summer jam called “Potion,” which features Young Thug and a dash of sex appeal.
Dua and Young Thug jam on a tropical island from sunset to dark in the accompanying music video for this disco-pop hit. Dua begins by singing from an overturned vintage automobile. She sings, “In the whip on a Tuesday night / Got the music high.” “And by my si-i-ide, si-i-ide, si-i-ide, si-i-ide, si-i-ide, si-i-ide, si Later, we witness her stroll down a neon-lit hallway with her backing dancers, flaunt her sensual dances on a lilypad, and even perform onstage in a sparkling silver outfit and boots.
Dua and Young Thug jam at a tropical island from sunset to twilight in the accompanying music video for this disco-pop tune. It starts with Dua singing from the hood of an overturned vintage automobile. She vocalizes, “In the whip on a Tuesday night / Got the music high.” “And you, si-i-ide, si-i-ide,” says the narrator. Later, we witness her march down a neon-lit hallway with her backing dancers, demonstrate her sensual movements on a lilypad, and even perform onstage in a sparkling silver outfit and boots.
To complement the song’s relaxed, sensual emotions, the video shows numerous clips fading into each other. Before the video fades to dark, a brief shot of Dua leaning against Harris can be seen as the song ends.
Harris teased the song on TikTok earlier this week with the phrase “How I made Potion.” The video features him tinkering with his keyboard and electric guitar, as well as a small footage of the DJ FaceTiming with Dua and a snippet of the song.
The song “Potion” is the first single from Harris’ upcoming album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2, which will be released this summer. The song is also the DJ’s second collaboration with Young Thug, following “Heatstroke” in 2017 with Pharrell Williams and Ariana Grande.
“One Kiss,” Harris and Lipa’s most renowned duet, was released in April 2018 and became the UK Singles Chart’s longest-running No. 1 single for eight weeks. This time, we’ll see what type of liquid “Potion” has in store.
