The Scottish DJ and his four collaborators perform as a 1920s band with Katy wearing a flapper dress and Pharrell Wiliams rocking a glittery jacket.
Calvin Harris debuts a second music video for his single “Feels”. While the first one sees the Scottish DJ and his three collaborators Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams and Big Sean in a deserted island, this new clip features the foursome performing as a band. Harris strums a guitar while Pharrell sings and plays a piano. The clip gives off 1920s vibes as Katy rocks a flapper dress and Pharrell dons a glittery jacket.
The song is taken from Calvin’s fifth studio album “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1” which came out in June. The song marked the end of public spat between Calvin and Katy. “We’d had little falling outs here and there. We’d had some public Twitter spats,” she recently told Ryan Seacrest. “Time to put all that behind us.”
“We just bumped into each other and he said, ‘I think I have a song that you should come check out’,” she recalled. “I was like ‘cool’ because we had always meant to work together for years and years and years. I came to the studio and he played me a bunch of unfinished but really solid moments for his new record.”
“Then he played me this one part for this new song called ‘Feels’ and I was like, ‘Oh yeah’,” the pop star went on. “This is like my favorite song off the record. I was just down to do it. I’ve always wanted to collaborate with him for years and years and years.”
Calvin Harris and Katy Perry first got into a feud in 2011. Katy was angry after Calvin cancelled his gig as an opening act at her concert at the last minute. The duo later clashed again following a “Bad Blood” between his then-girlfriend Taylor Swift and the “Ben Apetit” singer.
Taylor is going to premiere a music video for her new single “Look What You Made Me Do” at the MTV Video Music Awards hosted by Katy on Sunday, August 27. Rumor has it, Taylor dissed Kanye West with “I hate your titled stage” in the lyrics and took a subtle jab at Katy with “Locked me out and threw a feast.”
