Calvin Harris & Disciples - How Deep Is Your Love

It's embarassing that I'm using that picture, but DGAF. You smoulder like the brightest star Calvin !! (here's where I would insert heart face emogis if I was internet savvy). BUT, besides looking like a hot statue, Mr. Harris also crafts smart electronic music, so that is what we will be discussing here today. I'm a little shocked he went for something lacking huge commercial appeal. I mean, it's not a concept album on the origins of the Loch Ness monster, but it's also not "I Need Your Love." Which, considering the less "accessible" music of his earlier career, makes me think he probably never wanted to make Top 40 jams. And now that he's rich AF, he can do whatever he wants! Which means giving the people deep houseeeeee. I dig it. Favorite part is when Disciples sings "Is it like the oceannn." That part rocks. The music video is bordering on offensive though. Obviously Gigi Hadid is super hot, and I would look at her shake her hair around all day long, but this video makes Victoria's Secret commercials look like C-SPAN. Could we maybe have some narrative structure?! Is Gigi an exotic dancer? A rapper's GF? Is she a down-on-her-luck girl looking for love in Ibiza? ANYTHING. Literally, she's eye-fucking the camera for 4 minutes. I give up.

P.S. Youtube comment of the century on this video.  "Came here hoping for a Bee Gees cover, left disappointed."
