CALVIN HARRIS #1 ON BILLBOARD'S DANCE/ELECTRONIC CHART
Producer Calvin Harris has the #1 album on Billboard's Dance/Electronic Albums chart with his October 30 release, 18 Months. This comes after a #1 debut on the Albums chart in Harris' native United Kingdom. 18 Months is the artist's third solo effort.
Harris' big mainstream break came in 2011 when he collaborated with R&B/Pop princess Rihanna to create the infectious dance-pop hit "We Found Love." The song, which Billboard credits as "one of the strongest singles of the past two years," was first released as the lead single on Rihanna's Talk That Talk, and also appears on 18 Months, alongside collaborations with Ellie Goulding, Kelis, Ne-Yo, and others. Reverb Music writer Mark Knight contributed to the album's party anthem, "Drinking From The Bottle," featuring Tinie Tempah.
