Calvin Harris Matches Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen: 7 UK Top 10 Singles From 1 Album

Calvin Harris has achieved the impressive feat of having seven tracks from the same album reach the top ten on the U.K. charts.

The Scottish DJ hit the landmark when his new track “Drinking From The Bottle” reached No.5 this week.

Harris has also been recently nominated for Best British Male  Solo Artist at the Brit Awards, so 2013 could be off to a very good start for the hit-maker.

When a fan took to Twitter to let him know that his new single had hit the milestone, he Tweeted simply: “Apparently the only other albums with 7 top 10s are “Born in The USA” and “Thriller,” hahaha that’s amazing.”

Although he’s joining Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson in the exclusive club, Harris is the first U.K. artist ever to achieve the remarkable feat.

Last year proved to be another incredibly successful one for Harris, with his album “18 Months” reaching No. 1 on the charts and a host of singles proving to be hits, including his”Sweet Nothing” collaboration with Florence Welch.

The producer told The Guardian that making pop music was easy, but added that doing it perfectly was more tricky.

“It’s incredibly easy to do, but hard to do perfectly.

“I’d struggle to make a perfect ham sandwich because I never make them, whereas pop music comes naturally to me – it’s what I do every day.”
