DJ and producer Calvin Harris has been teasing his latest single "Nuh Ready Nuh Ready" with Toronto's Partynextdoor for a few days, and now the song, along with its accompanying video, is finally here. Heavily influenced by London and the city's love of both electro-house and dancehall, the song finds Party switching between quick patois delivery and his usual croon. The video is an all green-screen affair, putting Party and a few dancers on a variety of colorful, trippy, early 90s-looking backdrops. This might be another collab hit in the bag for Harris, who topped last year's Forbes list of the World's Highest Paid DJs.
The buildup to the single's release has been going on for a minute, starting with a silent (and sort of creepy) video with the release date. If you were lucky enough to see Party at last night's London stop on his Infinity Tour, you saw an early performance of the song beforehand.
Just last year, Calvin worked with another Toronto artist, Jessie Reyez, on "Hard To Love", which peaked at number 30 on the dance charts despite not even really being an official single from his platinum-selling Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. Reyez is also one of the supporting acts on Party's Infinity Tour, so the connections make perfect sense.
