"Heatstroke" is a song by Scottish DJ and record producer Calvin Harris. It features vocals from American rapper Young Thug, American singer and rapper Pharrell Williams and American singer Ariana Grande. It is the second single from Harris's fifth studio album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 (2017). It was released on 31 March 2017 through Sony Music, following "Slide".[2]

Composition[edit]

The song was written by Calvin Harris, Young Thug, Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams, Brittany Hazzard, Robin Hannibal, and Cecilie Karshøj.[3] Initially Hannibal and Karshøj of Danish duo Quadron were not credited as co-writers. According to Karshøj, Quadron wrote the demo version of "Heatstroke" with Pharrell Williams in 2012, but when Pharrell Williams released the song with Calvin Harris in March 2017, Hannibal and Karshøj were uncredited as co-writers. Karshøj alleges that she has a video recording of herself recording the demo vocals for "Heatstroke", which were later re-recorded by Ariana Grande. Karshøj has said that the duo receives 15 percent of the song's royalties.[4]

Musically, "Heatstroke" is a house song that combines hip hop and dance music.[5][6] News.com.au described the song as a "sun-kissed disco funk delight."[7]
