This just in: Calvin Harris’ latest single ‘Sweet Nothing’ has entered the UK singles chart at number one. The single, which features Florence + The Machine front woman Florence Welch on vocals, has been a favourite of mine ever since its release. It really comes as no surprise to me that the song is this successful. It has all the elements that every pop song needs: superb vocals, a great beat and an even better hook.
The single also replicates the success the two had in July with the Florence + The Machine single ‘Spectrum’, which also charted at number one. Elsewhere on the chart, Swedish House Mafia, Psy (he of the Gangnam Style variety), Rihanna (Diamonds) and Adele (Skyfall) round out the top five. Calvin Harris next album 18 MONTHS will be released October 28, and features Kelis, Ellie Goulding, Example, Florence and a host of other artists. Tell your friends.
