Calvin Harris breaks Michael Jackson's chart record in the UK

Listen to Calvin Harris on iHeartRadio

(Yahoo!) - Calvin Harris has broken Michael Jackson's long-standing chart record as the artist to achieve the most top 10 hits from the same album.

The Scottish DJ and producer made UK chart history with "I Need Your Love," his dancefloor-packing collaboration with English singer Ellie Goulding, which hit number seven on the UK charts this week.

It's the eighth song from his album 18 Months to make it to the Top 10, beating the record Jackson set with his 1987 album Bad and again in 1991 with Dangerous, which each racked up seven Top 10 hits. It's also the first time in the chart's 60-year history that this feat has been accomplished.

The album has sold more than 543,000 copies in the UK since it came out in October.

Harris has become a mainstay of pop and electronic music in recent years, producing several chart-topping hits and collaborating with the likes of Rihanna, Kylie Minogue, Mary J Blige and Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine. He has won a Grammy, MTV Awards and Brit Awards. He often serves as house DJ at celebrity events and just signed a contract for a residency at the new MGM Grand club Hakkasan in Las Vegas.
