Here 2 China

Album: 18 Months (2012)
  • This song features Dizzee Rascal. Calvin Harris previously collaborated with Rascal on the rapper's UK #1 singles "Dance Wiv Me" and "Holiday."
  • Harris told The Sun how he ended up doing another song with Rascal, but this time for his album. "We played a festival in Belgium," he recalled, "I was at the airport and saw him. So I said: 'I've got this track, I think you'd sound really good on it but it's not for you, it's for me.' I thought he'd say no, as that's what he's like sometimes but he was well up for it - he heard and did it. It's sounding awesome.
    That's the way I did most of the tracks. I'd think about who would sound good on it and what sort of voice would suit it - then I'd start approaching people."
