British singing sensation John Newman isn't a stranger to impressive collaborations. We first caught wind of him when he lent his soulful pop call when he was a featured artist on Rudimental's "Feel The Love" and "Not Giving In," which remain two of the group's most beloved hits since their release in 2012. Since then, he's gone on to release his own music further fueling his career, and was called upon in 2014 by a new fan in Calvin Harris for the platinum single "Blame."
Now in 2016, the dream team of Harris and Newman are back at it again, this time on John Newman's side of the field. "Ole" is out now via Universal Music, and comes ahead of Newman's next album release slated for later this year. "Ole" is a new look for both Newman, calling on summery reggae-infused production from Harris. But this isn't your height of the trend, Rihanna-chasing moombahton. It's the Bob Marley, ganja-inspired kind, with a catchy melody and John Newman's alluring vocals at their best work.
