Video Premiere: Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna – ‘This Is What You Came For’
No matter what Rihanna does lately, she seems to be letting someone down. ‘ANTI’ is too left for the pop fans and her appearance on Calvin Harris’s ‘This Is What You Came For’ unfairly gets compared to ‘We Found Love’. What if we told you the video for her single with Calvin has been the thing you’ve been waiting for from Ri?
Really playing into the the lyric “lightning strikes every time she moves”, the ‘This Is What You Came For’ music video finds Rihanna taking cues from her sometimes flame Drake and setting up shop in a white box that can shape-shift to anything projected on it. Club culture, nature stock shots, animations of the cover art of the single are all part of the magic that Ri brings to life during this video.
Nothing monumental or innovative, but a solid video for a great song. Honestly, what else were you going to expect from these two? A video with a narrative?
