Calvin Harris Collabs With Jay-Z & Will Smith On HBO Comedy
By Nadia Noir
Girls better get their ish together. It’s about to get some competition. World-renowned DJ Calvin Harris is collaborating with some well-known dudes with a dime or two to burn, Will Smith and Jay-Z, for an upcoming HBO comedy called Higher.
The half-hour series that takes place in the electronic music world was developed by Harris, but written by provocative Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh who’s gritty style reflected the early EDM world of drugs and dancing perfectly in a film of the same name.
Smith and Jay-Z have become quite the producing juggernauts; the pair are also working together on an upcoming remake of Annie.
Harris is currently nominated for two Grammy awards including Best Dance Recording for “Sweet Nothing” with Florence Welch and Best Dance/Electronica Album for 18 Months.
