Calvin Harris and Miley Cyrus’ ‘Ocean’ aborted

Some of you may remember that a couple of months ago Calvin Harris released ‘Ocean’, a collaboration with Miley Cyrus. It promised to be a summer hit. And aren’t we already in summer? In the last few days, some pop music accounts claim that Calvin Harris has commented online that he wanted to release the song, but Miley Cyrus’ team has not authorized it.

In fact, the teasers posted online have begun to disappear. NME has contacted the representatives of both artists seeking a response. We don’t know if this will be forthcoming, but what we will be sure of is the humour of the networks.

With their usual acerbic tone, the Popjustice forum members are divided between those who saw ‘Ocean’ as a possible number 1… and those who now call for Dua Lipa to take over. And then there are those who believe that Calvin Harris stayed in 2014.

Perhaps the best comment, though, is the one that references how much Miley Cyrus doesn’t like performing live. She says, “Miley just saw that she’s the favorite to play at the Super Bowl next year and realized that she has to do less to avoid that from happening.”

We leave you with what remains of the song on Youtube. It doesn’t look like it will last long online.
