Rihanna Glimmers in Calvin Harris’ ‘This Is What You Came For’ Video
Lightning strikes every time she moves... and so do laser beams, it seems. Sitting pretty in the Top 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart, Scottish producer Calvin Harris' latest collaboration with Rihanna, "This Is What You Came For," has finally gotten the music video treatment. Watch the Emil Nava-directed clip above.
On Wednesday (June 15), amid tweeting that he was eating Indian food (as one does), Harris revealed that both the remix EP and the official video for the hit dance banger would be released on Friday (June 17).
Along with the announcement, the artist shared some behind-the-scenes photos of Rihanna from the set, with the singer dancing in front of green laser lights in one snapshot, and posing in front of a reddish backdrop in another. A third image shared on Instagram shows her standing against a teal background, shining bright like a diamond while wearing a shimmery blouse and layered jewelry.
A throbbing dance-floor thumper, "This Is What You Came For" is the Barbadian pop star's third collaboration with Harris. Released in 2011, their first track together, "We Found Love," peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Their second, "Where Have You Been," hit No. 5 in 2012, solidifying the duo as a musical match made in chart-topping heaven.
Collaborations have been among Harris's biggest chart successes — sadly, given that he's unfollowed his ex on social media, a Taylor Swift-Calvin Harris song is something we'll likely never hear.
