While dance music producer and performer Calvin Harris has been busy becoming an international pop superstar with his trio of singles "Bounce" featuring Kelis, "Feel So Close," and "Let's Go" featuring Ne-Yo, he has experienced some serious chart frustration at home in the UK. Despite having two earlier #1 pop hit singles, these last three hits have all peaked at #2 on the UK pop singles chart. Calvin Harris' latest release will use some guest star power to try and power into the #1 slot. However, he will also have to fight off music from the Olympics along the way.
Calvin Harris' latest single "We'll Be Coming Back" was released this past weekend around the world. "Let's Go" is still climbing the charts in the US, but the new track is receiving a major publicity push in the UK. It includes acclaimed British singer and rapper Example on vocals. Example is no stranger to hits. His most recent album Playing In the Shadows included the pair of #1 pop hit singles "Changed the Way You Kiss Me" and "Stay Awake." To accomplish the feat of topping the chart, "We'll Be Coming Back" with have to fend off "Caliban's Dream," a key track from the London Olympics opening ceremonies performed by electronic music act Underworld. So far, Calvin Harris is leading the charge.
For fans of current British pop, the next Calvin Harris single will be eagerly awaited as well. It reportedly will be a song titled "Sweet Nothing" featuring vocals from Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine. It is a Calvin Harris remix that has played a key role in propelling Florence and the Machine to the top of the UK pop singles chart for the first time with their current chart topper "Spectrum." Check out the new "We'll Be Coming Back" below.
