#CityofCapeTown trended on Wednesday and Thursday as users criticised the Cape Town municipality over an eviction incident that went viral. A video shared on…
“My Way” might be pretty famous song lyric for a certain New Yorker, but Scottish recording artist Calvin Harris has today used these two words to stir up some controversy on social media.
Debuting his latest track on YouTube, “My Way” boasts some summer house beats with lyrics sung by Harris himself… and lyrics that the internet believes cites his feud with former partner Taylor Swift.
Harris and Swift haven’t exactly seen eye to eye recently, especially since the duo’s July 2016 Twitter war surrounding Harris’ other 2016 hit, “This is What You Came For”. The track, which featured Rihanna, was co-written by Swift under a pseudonym.
