On July 13, 2009 it was the Popjustice song of the day. Harris performed the song at the iTunes Live Festival '09 on July 18, 2009 in London. It debuted in the UK Singles Chart at #3 on 16 August 2009. On April 10, 2009, Harris was interviewed by The Sun and commented on the song: "It's different to the first single. It's still happy, dancey, with more singing. The hook's sung by a woman called Mary Pearce, who's a diva. She's got this great big voice and it's like a nod to an old dance classic. I love underground dance music but I also have an extreme love of commercial dance music. But only the good stuff." Calvin followed up his No.1 smash 'I'm Not Alone' with the upbeat 'Ready For The Weekend', which hit the top 3 in August 2009. The track features the formidable lungs of a lady called Mary Pearce, who's been backing singer for the likes of Beverley Knight and Chaka Khan, and fulfils his ambition of doing a song with a diva!

Ready for the Weekend - Calvin Harris

Counterfeit, counterfeit
That's what you're shouting at me
I could run but I'd sooner have this
End Amicably.
Lick the blood stain from your finger
Say what do you see?
Remind you that whatever you get is
What you want it to be

You want it to be
You get a feeling, that's what you choose
And I was told there is not a minute to lose
So if you're waiting, jump out your skin
To find a cure for whatever state your in
I tell my good friends get out the way!
Of all the lightning hitting the trees today
We get a thrill from clapping our hands
We find the nearest girl
And ask her to dance

[Mary Pearce]
(Ouuw) I put on my shoes and I'm ready for the weekend (4x)
Weekend, weekend, weekend...

[Calvin Harris]
Coming back coming back
To a place where, I never knew
Pushing knobs, pushing faders
But I don't know what they do
This reflection in my mirror, reminds me of you.
When I tilt it towards the sunlight, you fall out of view
You fall out of view!

You get a feeling, that's what you choose.
And I was told there is not a minute to lose
So if you're waiting, jump out your skin
To find a cure for whatever state your in
I tell my good friends get out the way!
Of all the lightning hitting the trees today
We get a thrill from clappin our hands
We find the nearest girl
And ask her to dance

[Mary Pearce]
(Ouuw) I put on my shoes and I'm ready for the weekend (4x)
Weekend, weekend, weekend...
