'He is very serious about Taylor and doesn't want to rock the boat. He's smitten,' a source says of why the Scottish DJ refuses an idea to feature the 'Out of the Woods' singer on his new single.
Don't expect to hear a Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift collaboration anytime soon. The Scottish DJ, who's been romantically linked to the former country diva, has reportedly turned down a chance to work with his girlfriend because he fears it may ruin their relationship.
According to The Sun, Harris "politely declined" his label's idea to have Swift on his new single. "Calvin's next single is ready but the label is keen for him to get a big female U.S. star to collaborate on it," an insider told the British newspaper, The Sun. "They floated the idea of him working with Taylor but he politely declined it."
"Calvin has seen how sour things can turn when working with someone he's dating," the source added, referring to Harris' failed relationship with Rita Ora. "He is very serious about Taylor and doesn't want to rock the boat. He's smitten."
The 32-year-old EDM star produced some songs for Ora when they were dating. After they broke up, he banned her from releasing those tracks he contributed to. As a result, the British songbird had to cancel a number of scheduled appearances and delay her next album following the split.
While Harris has refused to collaborate with Swift, he is reportedly eyeing another female superstar for his upcoming single. The source claimed that the "Summer" hitmaker's "in talks" with Beyonce Knowles. "He's always wanted the pair to work together. She is a big fan. He loved her feature on Naughty Boy's dance single 'Runnin' (Lose It All)' last year," the source added.
