Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift have another thing to argue about when they address his epic Twitter rant. Calvin claims that she didn’t write the music on his duet with Rihanna, but a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Taylor totally did!
So it’s confirmed: it wasn’t gonna be forever; it went down in flames. Calvin Harris, 32, started off his Twitter rant on July 13 by cheerily confirming — and praising — ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift‘s songwriting skills on his duet with Rihanna, 28, “This Is What You Came For”. But he went into rage mode, quickly mentioning that she didn’t write the music! Funny, because Taylor is responsible for that amazing melody, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned from a source!
Calvin tweeted at the beginning of his rant, before he went all in on Taylor, that yes, Taylor wrote the lyrics for his song, and “sings on a little bit of it too.” Amazing! He then tweeted: “I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym.”
He may be eating those words soon, though, once Taylor catches wind of this entire Twitter ordeal. “Taylor wrote the melody and lyrics [for ‘This Is What You Came For’],” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. The source confirmed that Calvin produced and arranged the song.
And she sings on a little bit of it too 🙃
Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual https://t.co/vW3yGOIJit

Whoa! While it’s one of the least egregious things Calvin says about his ex-girlfriend, it still may be a tough dig for Taylor to swallow. Yes, Taylor was initially credited as a writer on the song under a pseudonym, Nils Sjoberg, but now Calvin is giving her less credit. “I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym,” he tweeted.
Calvin also accuses Taylor and her team of trying to “make him look bad” in his epic Twitter rant. “Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though,” he tweeted. Hmm, wonder what’s going on behind the scenes? Did the pair ever expect “This Is What You Came For” to be the No. 1 hit of the summer, with millions of downloads already worldwide?
Cal clearly isn’t happy about her moving on so quickly with Tom Hiddleston, 35, either. “I know you’re off on tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy [Perry] ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it,” he tweeted. “Please focus on the positive aspects of YOUR life because you’ve earned a great one.” Damn!
