Calvin Harris featuring John Newman – Blame Review
A typical ‘Blame’ by Calvin Harris featuring John Newman review would compare the song to the artists’ recent dance hit ‘Summer.’ It is just inevitable to do that. It could have been difficult for Harris to come up with a deserving follow up to that smash hit. But at least he tried by releasing this new single.
For a start, this song can be considered as a sequel to its predecessor especially with the noticeable clapping beats complemented by the gradual build-ups. Moreover, the lazy strum of electric guitars does the wonder. It builds up to a killer rift during the dance break.
Not surprisingly, this track can keep one on his toes right until the bass starts to drop. In such a way, the song does not disappoint. You can jump, scream, and just shake all you want as you listen and dance to this track. The catchy hooks and the break beats are paired with the extra oomph provided by the soulful vocals of Newman.
