Calvin Harris has been turning out club bangers for a over decade; when his debut single Acceptable in the 80s hit Number 10 in March 2007. Since then, he has achieved eight Number 1 singles, one massive million selling classic and has knocked up hits for Kylie Minogue, Scissor Sisters, Rihanna, Cheryl and Rita Ora.
Calvin has an impressive 24 Top 10 singles under his belt, as well as two Number 1 albums. Not too shabby, right? Check out Calvin's biggest hits to date below, but first, a closer look at the Top 5:
For his fifth studio album, Calvin went funk, and it resulted in his eighth chart-topper Feels - a mega collab with Katy Perry, Pharrell and Big Sean. The single has shifted 893,000 combined sales to date, 80% of which comes from streaming.
A single from his Motion album, Summer was the album's lead single and went straight in at Number 1, riding a wave of momentum following his previous top spot hogger, the non-album track Under Control. Featuring Calvin on vocals, it was the soundtrack of summer 2014 and pushed past the 100,000 barrier in week one with a combined total of 106,000. The song is also Calvin's biggest hit with himself on vocals. Overall, the track has garnered combined sales of just over 1 million.
How Deep Is Your Love
The first of two Number 2 hits in Calvin's all-time Top 5, this bad boy was kept off Number 1 by One Direction's Drag Me Down. Apt because 1D did exactly that, halting Calvin from achieving an eighth Number 1.
Calvin tag teamed with Disciples in 2015 for How Deep Is Your Love, which has so far racked up a combined chart sales figure of 1.4 million. While your love is rather deep for this one, two songs have managed to appeal to the UK just that little bit more...
2. This Is What You Came For
Another song that had to settle for second place, This Is What You Came For also takes the runner-up slot on Calvin's biggest hits list.
Calvin's second hook-up with Rihanna was a monster hit in 2016. It became Calvin's 20th Top 10 single and RiRi's 28th and achieved over 100,000 combined sales for two weeks running. Despite those enormous sales tallies, the song never reached Number 1 - that spot was firmly occupied by Drake's One Dance.
Although not Calvin's biggest hit when streaming and sales are combined, This Is What You Came For is the most streamed smash in his repertoire and has been played over 113 million times in the UK, while its combined total stands at 1.6 million. Speaking of Calvin and Rihanna...
1. We Found Love
Rihanna is back again, this time for the million-selling We Found Love. To date, the song has sold 1.42 million units, a figure that rises to a combined total of 1.8 million when streaming data is included. We Found Love topped the Official Singles Chart on two separate occasions, staying on top for six non-consecutive weeks. A song so nice, it was Number 1 twice!
The rest of the Top 20
Calvin's second collaboration with Ellie Goulding, Outside, places at Number 7, with 775,000 combined sales, while his first outing with Ellie I Need Your Love finishes just outside the Top 10 at 12 (675,000). Fittingly, Acceptable In The '80s - the song where it all began - completes the list at Number 20.
