Who’s John Newman and Calvin Harris’s ‘Ole’ about ?

John Newman and Calvin Harris are making Hawaiian shirts look pretty good in their newly released video for “Olé,” shot in Los Cabos, Mexico. The lyrics have listeners speculating that the song is a reaction to Harris’ recent breakup with Taylor Swift.


In the colorful video, Harris, 32, and Newman, 26, enjoy a summer vacation in Cabo, surrounding by the beach, palm trees and a group of beautiful, bikini-clad women. At one point, one of the models lounges on a bed of rocks by the beach, possibly a nod to Swift and Hiddleston’s first pictures together, in which the “Bad Blood” singer, 26, and the Night Manager actor, 35, kissed outside of her Rhode Island mansion.


In another scene, Harris, Newman and the girls go for a walk on the beach, just like Swift and Hiddleston did during a trip to London in June.

“My heart speaks, I ain’t seen you or bin’ with you for weeks, but I see online that you’ve begun to be a good girl and take trips with your boyfriend, being attentive continue to pretend,” sings John. “But no, cos’ 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’ve booked in a hotel.”


The last line has actually lead some people to speculate that the song might actually be about Rita Ora, Calvin’s other ex, because The Sun reported in 2014 that they split when he found out she didn’t tell him she was in the same city and stayed in a hotel instead.

The Ole video is totally about Taylor Swift, right? And, Obviously this is a message…
