Calvin Harris and Katy Perry

So much shade, so little time.

On Tuesday, Calvin Harris announced his star-studded lineup of collaborations for his upcoming album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, which will be out for your listening pleasure on June 30.

So who are the "greatest artists of our generation" who offered services for the project? Well, the better question is who isn't the producer working with?

From Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, Kehlani, Future, Pharrell, Big Sean, John Legend, Khalid, Migos, Schoolboy Q, Ariana Grande, Young Thug, D.R.A.M., Nicki Minaj, Lil Yachty, Jessie Reyez, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Snoop Dogg — we'd say Calvin is covering all of his bases!

Calvin Harris' New Collaboration With Frank Ocean & Migos Makes You Want To Slide Around! LISTEN!

Calvin Harris pulled out some big names for his latest single!

On Thursday, Taylor Swift's ex dropped his new collaboration, named Slide, which features Frank Ocean and Migos. While the track doesn't necessarily scream "Top 40," it does offer up a mellow, kick-back vibe. We mean, it's the kind of jam you want to blast while cruising around in your car.

Now, we LOVE that Ocean decided to work with the Scottish DJ, but we are a little shocked to see that the two industry vets decided to make music with Migos — ESPECIALLY after the unsupportive things the hip-hop group had to say about iLoveMakonnen following his coming out announcement. Like c'mon, Frank, you are an important member in the LGBTQ community.

Nonetheless, be sure to ch-ch-check out the new song for yourself (below)!

Nothing quite like starting off the Grammys with a good bit of drama!!

Frank Ocean went on Tumblr late last night and posted a vicious statement calling out Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and show writer David Wild by name, and it's got everybody talking now just before this year's show!!

It all started when Ehrlich and Wild granted an interview with Rolling Stone in which they called out Ocean by name for his long-standing boycott of the show — and linked it back to Ocean's woeful 2013 performance at the event.

Now, Ocean is striking back to their allegations that his performance was "hands down one of the most ‘faulty' TV moments I've seen," in the producers' words.

On Tumblr last night, Ocean went off, writing out this statement in full in which he called out the producers, Taylor Swift, the entire awards show process, and much, much more:

And The Award For Worst Father EVER Goes To…

We feel so bad for Frank Ocean

As we reported last year, the musician penned a touching Tumblr post after the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida. In the essay, the 29-year-old speaks openly about his personal experiences with homophobia, including an incident where his father — Calvin Cooksey — made a derogatory statement to a transgender waitress when he was merely a child.

The rapper wrote:

"I was six years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a f*ggot as he dragged me out a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn't be served because she was dirty."

Fast forward to Thursday, Ocean's father is suing his son for $14.5 million based on what he wrote!

Cooksey's defamation lawsuit not only discredits Frank's story, it claims the post has damaged Calvin's opportunities in the film and music industry.

Sadly, this isn't the first time the artist's father has filed a crazy lawsuit. In 2014, he sued Russell Simmons for $142 million after his website — Global Grind — called him a deadbeat dad.

It's always sad when money comes between a family…
