Calvin Harris has hit out at ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift for making him “look bad” after confirming her involvement in his Rihanna collaboration This Is What You Came For.
Recent reports suggested Taylor was a creative force behind the DJ’s latest hit, and on Wednesday the ongoing rumors set off a social media buzz when sources revealed she had come up with the track while dating Calvin, and even recorded an early demo on her phone.
According to TMZ, the former couple decided to keep her role under wraps amid fears it would overshadow the song’s release, and the Scottish producer invited his frequent collaborator Rihanna to record the vocals, while Taylor kept the publishing rights under a pseudonym, Nils Sjoberg.
However, Taylor and Calvin’s romance allegedly began unraveling on the day of the single’s release on, after the DJ told radio host Ryan Seacrest he couldn’t see the pair collaborating anytime soon. The denial is said to have been the “breaking point in the relationship”, and the pair split in late May.
A representative from Swift’s management team has since confirmed the Shake It Off hitmaker penned the track, and the comment has prompted Calvin, real name Adam Wiles, to speak out about his ex’s involvement, insisting he wasn’t the one who wanted to keep her contributions a secret.
He took to Twitter.com on Wednesday to share a link to an article about the Swift statement, and began by praising the 26-year-old for her work.
