His last album was the number one hit, Ready for the Weekend and 18 Months looks like it is going to follow suit success-wise. Part of the reason for the commercial success is his talent and the other is that he has plenty of high profile guest vocalists. Besides Rihanna there is Ellie Goulding, Florence Welch, Tinie Tempah, and Dizzee Rascal. Single after single has been released from the album. It started with Rihanna and the megahit “We Found Love” then has moved on to “Let’s Go” with Ne-Yo, “Sweet Nothing” with Florence Welch, and “Feels So Close” with Harris supplying the vocals himself. In other words his songs have been a constant in the clubs for the better part of 2012. All the songs are very catchy and will have you running to the dance floor when you hear the first notes. Keeping it light all the songs are about partying and/or love. He knows his audience and is feeding them the beats they crave.
