Let’s be honest—nobody is surprised that this happened. The summer anthem of 2015 that still continues to dominate the radio waves has reached platinum status as of January 25, making it Calvin Harris‘ eighth platinum record under the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
His collaboration “How Deep Is Your Love” with Disciples has been garnering notorious attention, being played at numerous festivals throughout the year in addition to reaching phenomenally high positions on multiple international charts. The song shares the honor of platinum status along with past productions such as his triple platinum record “Summer” and nine-time platinum track with Rihanna “We Found Love“, which he was credited for being featured on. The man who Forbes has called the “Electronic Cash King” has only been furthering his career from the start. Coming out on top of Forbes’ highest paid DJ’s list year after year, his continuation in music production has proven to be the right track for him.
