SZA's soaring and others are taking note. Since she released the critically-acclaimed Ctrl, she's been recruited for collaborations with Maroon 5 and Lorde, and now Calvin Harris is entering the fray.

The two have teamed up for a 'Funk Wav Remix' of her fan-favorite cut, "The Weekend."

Considering its title, the reworking expectedly sounds like Harris's latest album of the same name.

With newly-added handclaps, deep bass plucks, and some vocoderized blips, the once slow-burning track has been given new (funky) life.

According to Australia's iTunes, the song drops tomorrow, December 15.

For those paying attention, the track sounds like the finalized version of a snippet Harris teased on Snapchat back in July.
