News, that it was Swift who co-wrote the song, ‘This Is What You Came For’ with her the then boyfriend, Calvin Harris. The song, which Harris collaborated with Rihanna, was released in April, a month before Harris and Swift broke up.
After Calvin went on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show and quipped that he could not imagine collaborating with Taylor Swift on a musical project, Taylor Swift decided to spill the beans on the secret that she had co-written Calvin’s hit single under the pseudonym, Nils Sjoberg.
After a lot of hate was directed in social media towards the DJ for hiding this fact, Calvin posted the following message on Twitter:
“And she sings on a little bit of it too…Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual. I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym.”
He immediately followed his note of appreciation by saying that it was really “hurtful” that Taylor and her team would try to defame his efforts after the track had already gained such popularity worldwide, reports ELLE.
Harris also took an intention dig at the hype that has been created around Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift’s dating life. Taylor’s ex-flame also seemed to be hinting, like many other on social media that her recent relationship is nothing but “staged”.
“I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do,” wrote Harris on Twitter.
