Was this what he came for? Hilarious, I know. Calvin Harris has a huge hit on his hands with “This Is What You Came For” but apparently he owes much more credit to his ex Taylor Swift than he is giving.
As the story goes (via TMZ) Taylor wrote and performed a demo of the song and sent it to Calvin. He loved it and began working on an official version. They both agreed that it would be a mistake to announce that they had collaborated as a couple because it would overshadow the song. So Taylor kept the publishing rights and used the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg on the credits.
Months later, when Calvin was asked about a potential collabo, he responded by saying “”You know we haven’t even spoken about it. I can’t see it happening though.”
This was allegedly one of the major items that led to the couple splitting up and going their separate ways.
When you hear the song, do you hear Taylor’s writing style?
