Drinking From the Bottle

Album: 18 Months (2012)
Charted: 5
  • Harris collaborated with Tinie Tempah on this dance track, which finds the English rapper declaring he's "looking for the next top model," between shouts of, "Forget about tomorrow... tonight, we' re drinking from the bottle!"
  • Tinie Tempah felt encouraged to link up with Calvin Harris on a big dance track, following the success of his EDM tune with Swedish House Mafia, "Miami 2 Ibiza." "I think it was really nice the magic that 'Miami 2 Ibiza' created, it opened up a different side to my music and took me to places that I never, never thought I'd be with the Swedish House Mafia," he told Capital FM. "So I kind of wanted to replicate that excitement again but even bigger and even better."
  • Calvin Harris became the first UK artist to spawn seven Top 10 singles from the same album when this song jumped from #15 to #10 on the UK singles chart. Amongs its tracks are six credited to Harris, plus Rihanna's "We Found Love," which also features the Scot. The previous album by a overseas artist to contain seven top tenners amongst its original tracklisting was Michael Jackson's 1991 Dangerous album. (Katy Perry's Teenage Dream set also included seven Top 10 hits, but the final two were taken from the special edition re-release.)
