“Olé,” produced by Harris for John Newman, was created months before Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris‘ breakup, multiple outlets reported, while other reports maintained speculation about the subject of the song.
Though Calvin Harris has been keeping busy in the studio and filming a music video in Mexico, that’s not stopping him from commenting, in his own way, on ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift’s new relationship with Tom Hiddleston. The DJ has reportedly sounded off more than once on Instagram, and now a new report from TMZ says he’s working on a new song … and Taylor was the inspiration.
Though the site didn’t reveal its sources, the song is allegedly titled “Ole” (though it should be noted that no song by that title is listed in connection to Calvin or his given name, Adam Wiles, on the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, or ASCAP, database). But it’s the alleged lyrics that really raise an eyebrow or two. The song reportedly includes lines like “I see online that you begun to be a good girl and take trips with your boyfriend / Being attentive, continue to pretend …” and “You’ve hidden my name in your phone / so you can call me to tell me / you’ve been going through hell / Left him alone and you booked in a hotel.” But the most damning of all? The nod to Tom’s Thor character, Loki: “Low key / you won’t tell none of your friends about me.”
Granted, it’s tough to tell where these lyrics came from, or how TMZ got ahold of the details. And this has happened to Taylor before, when One Direction’s lyrics for “Perfect” were leaked ahead of the song’s release and everyone seemed to think it was about a certain someone Harry Styles used to date.
Only time will tell if Calvin’s new song with repeated collaborator John Newman actually is this mysterious breakup track, but reports that Taylor is already working on new music of her own means that no matter what, great songs are coming our way in the near future.
