Tonight he's drinking from the bottle: Calvin Harris makes chart history with eight top 10s from one album
Calvin Harris has broken the UK chart record for scoring the largest number of top 10 hits from one album.
The Scottish DJ has had eight top 10 singles from his album 18 Months, breaking the previous record held by Michael Jackson who had seven top 10 hits from his 1987 album Bad, and his 1991 album Dangerous.
After Calvin Harris’ new single “I Need Your Love ft Ellie Goulding” reached number seven in the charts on Sunday, the DJ tweeted: “Eight top 10s from my album 18 Months now! So happy!!!”
His run of chart success began in June 2011 when “Bounce ft Kelis” peaked at number two, followed by “Feel So Close” (2), “We Found Love” with Rihanna (1), “Let’s Go ft Ne-Yo” (2), “We’ll be Coming Back ft Example” (2), “Sweet Nothing ft Florence Welch” (1) and “Drinking From the Bottle ft Tinie Tempah” (5).
Katy Perry is the only artist on Harris’ heels, having scored seven top 10s from her 2010 album Teenage Dream.
18 Months has sold over 543,000 copies in the UK since its release in October 2012, spending two weeks at number one.
Official Charts Company managing director Martin Talbot said: “Many artists only achieve a handful of hits in their entire careers, so for any act to secure three or four from one album is an excellent achievement. In turn, eight Top 10s from one album is not just impressive, it is absolutely remarkable.”
