Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding have achieved the impossible and rocketed to the top of the Official Singles Chart, a feat that many would describe as nothing short of a miracle. The dynamic duo’s trance-infused banger marks a comeback for the ’90s electronic sub-genre and has earned them their first UK Number 1 as a duo.
This chart-topping success represents the 11th Number 1 for Calvin and the fourth for Ellie, with the two previously collaborating on two Top 10 singles, namely 2012’s “Need Your Love” (which peaked at 4) and 2014’s “Outside” (which reached number 6).
Ellie’s latest achievement sees her level up with Geri Halliwell and Rita Ora’s quartet of British female solo artist Number 1s. Only Jess Glynne, with her impressive seven Number 1 singles, and Cheryl, with her five Number 1s, have secured more.
In an exclusive statement, Ellie Goulding expressed her elation about the achievement, saying, “Oh my God, we’re Number 1! I’m so excited, and it’s so nice to be by myself just for a moment to appreciate it. Thank you Calvin for letting me be a part of this song. I love working with you, always.”
Ellie went on to add, “I know you’re just as ecstatic as I am. This is just very cool. Thank you very much to everyone for listening to it and supporting it, Oontz, oontz…rave on!“
With their latest triumph, Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding have cemented their place in the annals of music history, and their collaboration is sure to go down as one of the most successful in recent times. Fans of the duo can look forward to more electrifying hits from these two in the future.
