** In terms of collaborators, Calvin is constantly praising John Newman, Dizzee Rascal, BURNS, R3hab, and Theo Hutchcraft of the group Hurts. Combined with their numerous collaborations together, this has lead to a close bond between all of them.

* HouseMusic: Despite mostly making dance hits, Calvin has made some very groovy instrumentals that could be considered this. Mansion, School, Awooga, and Slow Acid are some very prominent examples.

* FollowTheLeader: Ever since “I’m Not Alone” was released to success in the UK, it seems like a number of other songs have utilized a similar-sounding (if not the same exact) synth chord progression. “Yeah 3x” by ChrisBrown, "Eyes Wide Shut" by JLS, and “You Make Me Feel…” by Music/CobraStarship are just a few.
** “The Rain” features a notable saxophone sample. In 2011, the saxophone seemed to have become “hip” again, as heard in songs like “The Edge of Glory” and “Hair” by Music/LadyGaga, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” by KatyPerry, “In the Dark” by Dev, and “Mr. Saxobeat” by Alexandra Stan, which were all, curiously enough, released within months of each other.
