#harMONiousMusicMondays

Good Afternoon. Happy Monday! Indiana weather had quickly switched from the Devil’s mouth to Football season and chill. I have officially gotten into the routine for my new position :).

This week we will explore Calvin Harris (Real Name: Adam Richard Wiles) the Scottish born music producer, DJ, singer, and songwriter. Before ever entering the United States musical charts (Billboard 200) , Mr. Harris released two previous studio albums. However, once the third album “18 months” was dropped he began rising as an international star. “18 months” contained top charters such as Sweet Nothing, I Need Your Love, and Feel So Close which combined have more than 1.1 billion hits on YouTube. Calvin Harris also included the mega hit We Found Love on the third album. It is shocking to learn that not even 1 million record albums were sold for such a masterpiece.

Last week while working I discovered and fell in love with Calvin Harris’- Slide. I truly respect Calvin Harris because he does not discriminate. He has the unique ability of putting artist on tracks that may not be their typical  genre. For example, who would imagine Future rapping over an airy techno beat? Not saying that he couldn’t or wouldn’t but moreso who would have thought *Kanye Shrugs* He also has a knack for orchestrating amazing collaboration between artist. The most recent example being his single Feels featuring Big Sean, Pharrell, and Katy Perry.

That brings us to my harMONious Music Monday choice Slide ft. Frank Ocean and Migos (I love Offset’s verse). I encourage you to visit Genius.com an learn the meaning behind the lyrics. Slide= “Slide” is slang for consistently engaging in, and relishing, sexual acts without strings attached.”

 

 

[Intro: Frank Ocean]
I might
Empty my bank account
And buy that boy with a pipe
Buy that boy with a pipe
I might, I might
Empty my bank account
And buy that boy with a pipe
Buy that boy with a pipe
I might

[Chorus: Frank Ocean]
Do you slide on all your nights like this?
Do you try on all your nights like this? (I might)
Put some spotlight on the slide
Whatever comes, comes through clear
Do you slide on all your nights like this?
Do you try on all your nights like this? (I might)
Put some spotlight on the side
And whatever comes, comes through clear

[Verse 1: Frank Ocean]
All this jewelry ain’t no use when it’s this dark
It’s my favorite part, we see the lights, they got so far
It went too fast, we couldn’t reach it with our arms
Wrist on a wrist, a link of charms, yeah
Laying, we’re still a link apart

It’s like we could die here all young
Like we could dye hair all blonde

If we could see in twenty twin
Twice we could see it ’til the end

[Verse 2: Quavo]
Put that spotlight on her face (spotlight)
Put that spotlight on her face (ah, yeah)

We gon’ pipe up and turn up (pipe up)
We gon’ light up and burn up (burn up)
Mama too hot like a (like what?)
Mama too hot like a furnace (furnace)
I got a hundred G’s in my Goyard (G’s)
My diamonds gon’ shine when the lights dark (shine)
You and I take a ride down the boulevard (yeah)
And your friends really wanna break us apart
Good lord

[Verse 3: Offset]
(Offset!) Good gracious
Starin’ at my diamonds while I’m hoppin’ out a spaceship

Need your information, take vacation to Malaysia (Info)
You my baby, the paparazzi flashin’ crazy
She swallowed the bottle while I sit back and smoke gelato
Walk in my mansion, twenty thousand painting, Picasso
Bitches be dippin’, dabbin’ with niggas like a nacho
Took off her panties, diamonds dancin’ like Rick Ricardo
She havin’ it, went to college, workin’ on her bachelor
I know you got a past, I got a past, that’s in the back of us
Average, I’ma make a million on the average
I’m ridin’ with no brain, bitch, I’m out of it

[Chorus: Frank Ocean]
Do you slide on all your nights like this?
Do you try on all your nights like this? (I might)
Put some spotlight on the slide
Whatever comes, comes through clear
Do you slide on all your nights like this?
Do you try on all your nights like this?
Put some spotlight on the side
And whatever comes, comes through clear (I might)

[Outro: Frank Ocean]
I might empty my bank account (ooh)
And buy that boy with a pipe (ooh, yeah)
Buy that boy with a pipe
I might, I might (slide)
Empty my bank account (ooh, slide)
And buy that boy with a pipe (slide, yeah)
(Do you slide on all your nights like this?)
Buy that boy with a pipe
I might
