5 Years of Calvin Harris x Rag’n’Bone Man – ‘Giant’
January 11, 2024
11th January 2024 marks FIVE years since Calvin Harris released ‘Giant’ – the mega-hit with Rag’n’Bone Man. Upon its release, the track peaked at No.2 on the Official UK Chart, where it stayed for five consecutive weeks!
Did you know that Rag’n’Bone Man had actually written the song 4 years earlier but the production never felt right until it fell into Calvin’s hands in 2018 before the duo decided to release it.
The song is about “reflecting on my childhood and how parents aren’t always as strong as they seem. “I am a giant” is me telling my parents, “it’s my time to look after you” – Rag’n’Bone Man said of the track.
It’s the middle of January and the vibes are low. But don’t despair – here in the Spotlight office we’ve been cranking up the stereo and endorphins with these big hits that’ll get you through to Feb. It’s all daffodils from here.Read more
