Calvin Harris in Twitter song row with former girlfriend Taylor Swift
Calvin Harris has accused Taylor Swift of trying to “make him look bad” after it emerged she had co-written his new song under a pseudonym.
A series of tweets were posted on the DJ’s account in response to Swift confirming through a representative she was a writer on the Harris and Rihanna hit This Is What You Came For. Swift’s representative said the 26-year-old was listed as a co-writer under a Swedish alias. “Taylor wrote This Is What You Came For under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg,” they added.
Harris, who was in a relationship with Swift until their split at the end of May, responded to articles about the revelation on Twitter.
“I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though,” he wrote. “And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym.”
