Yes, Calvin Harris' new song 'Ole' is about Taylor Swift — hear me out
It feels like it was just yesterday when Tayvin was going strong and Taylor Swift had a possible engagement on her mind. But my, how times have changed.
Hiddleswift emerged shortly after Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift split and now the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer seems happier than ever as she travels the world with Thor actor, Tom Hiddleston. However, now it seems as if Calvin Harris isn't just going to sit idly by. Upon the release of his latest single, "Olé" featuring singer John Newman, there are some serious comparisons that could be made toward the musical exes and her swift hook-up with Hiddleston (And, yes, I did just do that).
Now first, before I get right into this, I just want to point out that there is still no proof that the song is about Swift. However, when you put lyrics and timing in place, I wouldn't put it past the seemingly bitter ex. Here's why.
For one, the lyrics of the new single align with the Hiddleswift situation all too well. With lyrics such as, "I ain't seen you or been with you for weeks / But I see online that you've begun to be / A good girl and take trips with your boyfriend / Being attentive, continue to pretend," it's hard to deny that there's no public correlation that can be made. With Harris abruptly deleting photos of Tayvin from Instagram and Swift traveling the world, this song could totally be the medicine Harris needs to move forward. The overall heartbreak and longing in the song is relatable toward what Harris is going through — and what better way for him to get his feelings out?
But I know what you're going to say: Sources close to both Swift and Harris have denied the break-up song claims. “People are just making assumptions to get attention for a song,” a source from Us Weekly reported with news of the song being recorded months ago. However, that doesn't mean that Calvin Harris hasn't associated the song with Swift over time. And, with the song being John Newman's song first, all of the possible drama that could have been going on behind-the-scenes could be what drew Harris into picking up the song in the first place.
I mean, who knows how long possible problems could have been brewing in the Tayvin relationship? Plus, with fear of a possible break-up on his mind, perhaps recording this song was just the ammo that Harris could have been arming his heart with. Especially if the rumors of Taylor Swift cheating on Harris with Hiddleston have any bit of truth to them — pre- or post- meeting Tom at the Met Gala on May 1.
So, yes, is assuming the song could have been written about Taylor a bit of a stretch? Absolutely. But when Calvin takes the stage to perform the song, I wouldn't put it past him to think about his famous ex. And, honestly, who knows how long those thoughts may have been crossing his mind?
