Only after "We Found Love" DJ managed partnerships for new album
Calvin Harris said that many of the participating artists from his new album only accepted after its partnership track with Rihanna, "We Found Love", succeed worldwide.
"At first, 18 months ago, when I was trying to bring people together, many said no and went back after 16 months maybe, maybe after 'We Found Love' and showed interest."
The DJ and producer spoke about the collaborations on the new album, "18 Months". "Although I produced some tracks for other people, I never called anyone for my albums. Then decided to go back and see how many people could fit on one album."
"18 Months" will be released on October 29 and will feature Kelis, Florence Welch, Example, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, Ne-Yo, among others.
