Calvin Harris feat Tinie Tempah - 'Drinking From The Bottle'
Instead of crystal meth, Harris makes Number One singles
Calvin Harris is the pop-star equivalent of Gus Fring, the Breaking Bad character who mass-produces crystal meth in his secret underground lair. Instead of crystal meth, Harris makes Number One singles. Like crystal meth, there’s a precise formula that guarantees the correct result every time, with very specific ingredients. For Harris these are: a massive guest, a squeaky keyboard line that counts as a riff, and a gigantic drop that’ll have the innards of the Warehouse Project bouncing. Works every time. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED.
