It's been a mere 2 months after the release of Calvin Harris' much-anticipated artist album 18 Months in late October. Now, Calvin has shared the exciting news that his album has gone platinum!
My album 18 Months officially went platinum this week! My first ever platinum album! Thank you anyone who bought it!!— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) December 21, 2012
Calvin has really taken dance music to a new level, crossing over to the pop world, drawing in new listners. But his album reflects a number of different genres and styles of music, from more dance-driven tracks like "Awooga" and the more electro-inspired "Iron" with Nicky Romero, to some more pop songs like his collab with Rihanna "We Found Love" and "Let's Go" with Ne-Yo, to even some hip-hop inspired songs like "Here 2 China" with Dillon Francis and Dizzee Rascal. Calvin also worked with artists like Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine, Ellie Goulding, and a few others to create the platinum album.
Check out the mini-mix he put together right before the album's release, showcasing all the songs of 18 Months. Congratulations Calvin!
