Which music star encouraged Calvin Harris to sing again?

Calvin Harris has revealed that Pharrell Williams convinced him to sing again.

The Scottish DJ previously laid down vocals on some of his tunes, but in recent years he has chosen to collaborate with feature artists.

He has worked with the likes of Rihanna and Ellie Goulding, but his new single 'My Way' features his own vocals.

Speaking on Zane Lowe's Apple Music Beats 1 show, Harris said Williams encouraged him to take up singing again.

He said: "Actually, Pharrell told me something about hitting the notes.

"Occasionally people try to persuade me to sing again and he was one of those people. 

"He said some of the most memorable and character voices, that we have, including himself, it's not about hitting the notes, it's about getting the emotion and the feeling and the character across.

"Once he said that to me I started looking at myself [and] my voice differently 'cos I was like, 'Hmm, someone like him picked up on that'."
