Could this be the first big hit of 2019? According to this website their collaborative new track Giants will be getting released on 11th January.

After the success of both One kiss and Promises i'm definitely intrigued in hearing the new single.

Have to admit, i was only recently thinking of artists who are likely to be releasing new music in 2019 and i completely overlooked Rag'n'Bone Man. :oops:

Good way of reintroducing him ahead of his next era, I’m sure this won’t disappoint!

I didn't expect these two to collaborate considering his usual style. One Kiss and Promises were two of the best songs released last year and Rag'n'Bone Man has great vocals so I will be surprised if this disappoints.

Was hoping Calvin’s next single would feature Camila after he said he had been trying to collaborate with her since 2016

Kinda hyped though, Promises and One Kiss are quality

Promises was great, One Kiss was very bad, so we will see

Calvin Harris has posted a teaser on Instagram. It doesn't give much away but i'm liking the sound of this already just from the short snippet. If this goes hard and anthemic in a Blame/We found love kinda way i'll be so here for this. :D

I imagine it’ll be a bit like Blame as he has that sort of voice, I’m not massively keen on him, but then I’m not on Sam Smith either and I did like Promises

It's out and i'm not that impressed after the first spin. Though I felt similar with "Promises" and it ended up as one of my faves from last year, so let's see how it goes with "Giant"...

Giants voice in this song is so annoying

I'm slightly disappointed. His voice just doesn't suit these kind of productions. The chorus break is nice but as a song it's not on par with Harris' last few singles which have all been magnificent.

Calvin chose the wrong vocalist for this song.

I like it on the first listen, but it's not as good as his recent singles.

agree. Can't help but think with a female vocalist this could've been a smash

I like it but I feel someone else would have sounded better on this one

Better than One Kiss (or however it is called) but worse than Promises.
