Calvin Harris has been pretty famous on TikTok with his songs including ‘Stay With Me’, which inspired a dance trend that saw multiple users and fans creating their own renditions of the same. They used the audio to create reels with their favourite festival outfits, make transition reels and some of them even included their family in the trend. He was also set to produce an album for Rita Ora, but they did not release it because he said ‘it isn’t good.’
