Calvin Harris: "Rihanna was the best thing that could have happened to me"

Calvin Harris has admitted that collaborating with Rihanna has helped his career immeasurably.

The pair teamed up in 2011 for the track 'We Found Love', which went on to be a smash hit around the world.

It is due to feature on his forthcoming album '18 Months' but Harris told The Sun that the single has already helped open doors for him in the US and beyond. The Scottish DJ said:

"It changed absolutely everything. Career-wise it was the best thing that could ever have happened. For example, in America my tune 'Feel So Close' came out about three months before."

He continued: "But when 'We Found Love' came out, the radio started playing 'Feel So Close' like it was the single after. Then that did really well, it charted well and sold a lot of copies. Then radio stations wanted to play me like I was the new act. That changed a lot of things as they wouldn't play me before."
