Calvin Harris (feat. Ellie Goulding) - I Need Your Love

TUNE OF THE DAY #84
Calvin Harris made history today as he became the first artist to have 8 Top 10 hits from one album! I've been a fan of Calvin Harris ever since the days of 'Acceptable in the 80s' and 'The Girls' about 6 years ago and I've loved seeing him go from strength to strength. He just can't go wrong: every single one of his tracks is a hit with me and his latest one is no exception! Ellie Goulding adds a different tone from his usual style and it is certainly going to be sticking around for a while longer!
And the video is fantastic...
