It’s the biggest party of summer, and everyone who’s anyone — hell, even a few who aren’t! — is going to be there. If you know, you know we’re talking about FunkWav Bounces Vol. 2, the second installment to Calvin Harris’s summer soundtrack series. Harris got the party started with “Potion,” featuring Dua Lipa and Young Thug; based on a teaser he posted to social media, there are a whole lot more big names coming through. Thug, who previously worked on “Heatstroke” for 2017’s FunkWav Bounces Vol. one, isn’t the only one returning to the party. Pharrell, Offset, and Snoop Dogg will all be back for seconds, rounding out a list that includes high-profile newcomers like Pusha T, Halsey, 21 Savage, Normani, Lil Durk, and Tinashe. Oh, Justin Timberlake, too.
For those keeping score, that’ll be a total of 23 artists — two more than we got on Vol. one. A track list is still to come, meaning these guests could be mingling in any number of ways. Plan your pregame now, because the party starts on August 5. Here’s the full guest list:
