New Single: Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna – ‘This Is What You Came For’
Holy. Fuck. Earlier this week, Calvin Harris announced that his new single was imminent. Not only did he announce that, but he dropped that bomb that he would be linking up with Rihanna again and that the song would be called ‘This Is What You Came For’. Do we have another Calv-anna banger on our hands? Is Rihanna, the pop hitmaker, back?
Sort of. It’s pretty much a non-event when you consider the two powerhouse names attached to it, but with that being said…don’t dismiss it entirely (after all, topping the success of ‘We Found Love’ isn’t possible.
On a euphoric house beat, Rihanna sings (in a full falsetto nearly the entire time, we might add!) about a mysterious woman who can’t help but keep her suitors in a trance with every move she makes.
Lightning, this is what you came for/Lightning strikes every time she moves/And everybody’s watching her/But she’s looking at you, oh, oh
It may not be what any of us were expecting, but it could set the stage to be a standout this summer.
