Calvin Harris: “'we Found Love’ Was The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me”
Having topped the charts in 25 countries and been certified platinum in 12 of them, Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ could be said to have done pretty darn well. A fact that producer Calvin Harris is extremely grateful for: “It was the best thing that ever happened to me,” he recently said in an interview with The Sun…
“It changed absolutely everything, career-wise, it was the best thing that could ever have happened,” he said, praising the number one single for helping to increase his popularity with American audiences.
“In America my tune ‘Feel So Close’ came out about three months before… But when ‘We Found Love’ came out, the radio started playing ‘Feel So Close’ like it was the single after,” he explained.
“Then that did really well, it charted well and sold a lot of copies… then radio stations wanted to play me like I was the new act,” he said of the single which previously had not garnered much attention.
The Scottish born DJ is currently prepping his new studio album ’18 Months,’ which is said to include features from the likes of Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal and Florence & The Machine.
’18 Months’ is set for release Monday, October 29.
