Music Recommendation – Single – Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding, Outside

The sequel to Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding’s I Need Your Love has a similar “In love with someone I can’t be with” vibe. This is also a bit of a Hear It First, as the song just dropped this morning (yet already has over 40,000 views).

I am a bit disappointed in how chaotic the song can be. Ellie Goulding sounds impressive, but any Hip-Hop fan automatically has to be a bit biased towards Ellie Goulding. It’s just a thing, don’t question it. Calvin Harris’ parts on the beat just sound very forced with extra noise that really is unneeded.

Overall, I would rate the song at about 8.75/10. Good comeback for I Need Your Love but just not the same song (which seems to have been the goal). Ellie Goulding sounds superb and Calvin Harris has some good pieces but the beat can be too excessive at some points.

Give the song a listen below:
