But for those who weren't aware, 'Calvin Harris' is actually a stage name used by Adam Richard Wiles.
The world famous DJ revealed why he chose to have a stage name and why it turned out to be 'Calvin Harris' back in 2009.
"I thought people might not know if I was black or not. After that, I was stuck with it."
So really it was simple.
Well thanks Adam/Calvin, we're loving the music either way.
