Calvin Harris - Sweet Nothing feat. Florence Welch

Is it weird to say that Florence Welch looks kinda hot dressed as a man?  Probably.

But that's about the only positive to this drivel.  Harris continues his run of working with every pop vocalist in the industry by joining forces with Welch.  His collaborations have ranged from pop euphoria (We Found Love with Rihanna) to the mediocre Bounce (with Kelis) and abysmal Let's Go (with Ne-Yo).

Sweet Nothing falls somewhere between the latter two.  It's quite simply not catchy enough, not exciting enough and not sophisticated enough.  Harris is the new David Guetta - the laughing stock of the music industry, even if financially speaking he's probably having the last laugh.  Welch does her best to lay herself bare in the vocal (and the video), but it's not enough to lift this track anywhere near the dizzying heights of her best solo efforts.


Listen: Sweet Nothing is released on 14th October.
