Calvin Harris Says No Kanye Collab, He Doesn't Need the Taylor Swift Backlash

EXCLUSIVE

Calvin Harris doesn't have any plans to collab with Kanye West because he knows that would play like a serious diss to Taylor Swift, which he's not trying to do ... TMZ has learned.

We spoke to sources on both sides who tell us Calvin and Kanye have not discussed making any music together, and although they have mutual respect ... they rarely speak at all. They're just not buds. There were reports Calvin wanted to record a track with 'Ye.

As for them EVER working together ... our Calvin sources say not right now because he wants to kill the narrative of being connected to Taylor. Translation: He's just done with all the drama around their breakup.

We're told during Calvin's brief run-in with Kim Kardashian at J Lo's birthday ... music, Taylor and Kanye were not discussed. It was more like pleasant salutations.
