Are Kanye West and Calvin Harris collaborating on new music?
Sources from both Harris’ and West’s camps told E! News that each is interested in working with the other on a song. Harris apparently thinks West is “brilliant with music” and sees the possibilities of collaborating on something “down the road.”
While it once seemed unlikely that these two specific artists would ever work together on something, it’s looking more and more possible. Harris met Kim Kardashian this past weekend when they both attended J. Lo’s birthday party. “When Kim walked in, Calvin saw her and stood up. He was clearly excited to see her and said ‘hi’ to Kim backstage,” Harris’ source told E! News. They didn’t just exchange greetings, though. The pair reportedly talked for 15 minutes.
The combination of Harris’ big, anthemic EDM and West’s art house rap style could certainly yield something sonically unique. Given that both men have had recent drama with Taylor Swift, the lyrical content would surely be scrutinized by fans of all parties.
It’s probably wise to not hold your breath though, TMZ reports that a collaboration is not coming any time soon.
