Weekend Rewind: Calvin Harris’ early milestone single ‘The Girls’
These days, it’s not uncommon for just one breakout song to woo the public and launch an artist into superstardom. But there are levels of success; a completely different brand of acclaim attributed to those who have started from the bottom and endured to earn and reach such heights. Today, Calvin Harris reigns supreme as one of dance and pop music’s kingpin, with a superior knack for crafting infectious club and radio fuel. But the now-high-profile Scotsman ripened from much quirkier, electropop roots that defined him and set up his prosperous journey into electronic, pop and dance music. “The Girls,” off Harris’ debut album I Created Disco, was a significant milestone in his early career. The playfully upbeat single achieved his highest charting position at the time on the UK Top 40, and is a shining example of the young Calvin Harris sound.
