Calvin Harris released ‘My Way’ on the 16th September, but just 3 days later, the tune has made it to #1 to the iTunes chart in 13 countries !! According to Whale Report, “My Way” is #1 in France, Mexico, Brazil, Ireland, Russia, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Panama, Kazakstan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Oman.
The Scottish producer took to Instagram to flaunt his triumph. Harris is no stranger to music chart domination, with his last single with Rihanna, ‘This Is What You Came For’ too hitting the top of charts globally.
The Scottish DJ sent the internet into a tailspin over the weekend with ‘My Way’. The tune which sports lyrics of a diss-song had fans interpreting the song to be one indicating his split from Taylor Swift.
“I made my move and it was all about you
Now I feel so far removed
You are the one thing in my way”
But Harris recently clarified the song’s meaning in an interview with Elvis Duran for the Z100 Morning Show. Harris explained that he actually wrote the song about his time working at a grocery store :
“It’s breaking out of a situation. I thought of the concept years ago, when I left Safeway. I was trying to move to London and I was working in the store in Scotland, I was trying to go on and make music for a living but I couldn’t because I didn’t have any money. I was like, damn this grocery store! If I could break out of this I could have enough time to work on music and get good.”
