Grab a cocktail with an umbrella in it and get ready to catch some rays because you’re about to be transported to summer.
Today, Calvin Harris dropped his new single, “Slide,” featuring Frank Ocean and Migos—and the results are a breezy, sunny jam perfect for a lazy summer afternoon.

Harris had been teasing a collaboration with Ocean by releasing bits of the track online:

This is Ocean’s first single since last year when he released his highly-anticipated sophomore album, Blonde.
Rap trio Migos, who are also featured on the single, made headlines earlier this year when they dissed hip-hop star iLoveMakonnen (real name Makonnen Sheran) when he came out as gay on Twitter.
In a Rolling Stone interview, Migos said iLoveMakonnen received support for coming out “because the world is f*cked up.”
The group was met with criticism for their statement and apologized. “We have no problem with anyone’s sexual preference. We love all people, gay or strait and we apologize if we offended anyone.”
Harris wrote the new track with Ocean and Migos’ Quavo and Offset.
All my songs in 2017 have been sonically designed to make you feel fucking incredible
