Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa to release new single Potion this Friday: Watch how Calvin made the bop now

It's the first single from Calvin's long-awaited Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2!

In very exciting news, Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa are set to reunite this Friday on a new track called Potion, the first release from the Scottish DJ's long-awaited Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2.

It'll be the first time Calvin and Dua have jumped on the same track since the mighty One Kiss - the summer anthem that hit Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart in the UK, becoming Calvin's ninth (!) and Dua's second chart-topper in the UK respectively. 

To celebrate the release of the track this Friday (May 27), Calvin uploaded a TikTok showing the behind-the-scenes of the making of the track, featuring a FaceTime cameo by Dua agreeing to collaborate again.

We also get a little taster of the track itself - a funk-inspired (obviously) post-disco number, where Dua recounts the potion for love; "Late night conversations, electric emotions / Sprinkled with a little bit of sex / and that’s a potion..."

One Kiss was a mammoth hit for both Calvin and Dua - the psychedelic electro-pop track kept its lips locked at the top of the Official Singles Chart for a massive six weeks, and was officially crowned *the* biggest single of 2018.

Earlier this year, Calvin began teasing that his sixth official studio album would be arriving in Summer 2022 - as the follow-up to 2017's Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, which contained collaborations with the likes of Migos, Ariana Grande and Frank Ocean.

The collection's biggest hit was the Number 1 single Feels, featuring Pharrell, Big Sean and Katy Perry.

As for the caliber of artists Calvin will be recruiting for Vol. 2, that's a secret that's guarded better than Fort Knox, but fans have begun to suspect that Calvin will be teaming up with ultimate pop hun Jade Thirlwall for a track, which would quite handily kickstart Jade's burgeoning solo career following Little Mix's extended hiatus (sad face).
