It’s only been 24 hours since Calvin Harris released his new collaboration with Rihanna, “This Is What We Came For,” and still the internet is positively buzzing. Calvin Harris has everyone wrapped around his finger and at the edge of their seats for more news – after all, it’s really not that often that the highest paid DJ in the world comes out with a new track.
But since the track’s release, Calvin has been doing a stint of interviews with guys like Ryan Seacrest and CapitalFM, letting loose some secrets and nuggets of interest.
We’re going to rip the bandaid off quickly here: Calvin doesn’t foresee a collaboration with Taylor Swift happening any time soon. He says, “You know, we haven’t even spoken about it. I can’t see it happening, though.” We hope he changes his mind.
He also said that the collaboration with UK singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding is really only “half a song” at this point, and isn’t sure whether it will be finished.
But in the meantime, Calvin Harris has confirmed to CapitalFM that he has new collaborations with John Newman and Dizzee Rascal. “I persuaded [Dizzee] to do basically a track that I really wanted to hear him on and it just turns out that everyone is really loving it.”
As for John, Calvin has nothing but love for the singer, stating that his voice is “ridiculous,” and also that he’s “a lovely guy.”
We’re not sure when any of this new material will be coming out, but since Calvin has opened the floodgates with “This Is What We Came For,” we have to assume some of it will be coming soon.
