Calvin Harris & John Newman's “Ole” Lyrics Are Not Exactly Subtle
Not one day after TMZ was like, “Hey, gird your loins, because an alleged Tayvin breakup tune by one Mr. Calvin Harris is about to drop” (I’m paraphrasing), said tune dropped. Yes, John Newman and Calvin Harris song “Olé” has hit the internet and you can put it into your ears now. Aaaaand just as TMZ promised, the Calvin Harris-penned “Olé” lyrics will raise a few eyebrows.
While the inspiration for the lyrics has yet to be confirmed, the song is rumored to be about Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston, which, holy cannoli. Either that, or it's just a totally fictional tale written from the POV of someone whose paramour is in a relationship with someone else. We may never know.
I will now present the jury with Exhibit A:
Low key/You won't tell none of your friends about me
Low key… Loki… As in Tom "Loki" Hiddleston? As if the first line of the song wasn't enough to get tongues wagging, please take a gander at Exhibit B:
I see online that you begun to be a good girl and take trips with your boyfriend/Being attentive, continue to pretend, but no/'Cause there's no telling how far you will go
Well, uh... that's either a dig at his now-ex and and their many Instagrammed vacations, or that lyric is just a coincidence? Hm? Hmmmm? Let us move on to Exhibit C:
But no, cause there's no telling how far you can go/You've hidden my name on your phone so you can/Call me to tell me you've been going through hell/Left him alone and you booked in a hotel
Oh, man. Ohhhh man. That is juicy. And finally, Exhibit D:
You bring too much sunlight to my day
Oh, my goodness is the "sunlight" a thinly veiled reference to Swift's new bright blonde hairdo!?!?! ...Sorry, sorry. That one's a stretch. Forgive me. Low key.
