Rihanna “This Is What You Came For” – Listen To New Calvin Harris Song!
The duo dropped their new track on Friday, after previewing a snippet on Thursday. “Lightning strikes every time she moves/And everybody’s watching her/But she’s looking at you,” sings Rihanna, as the EMD star puts his signature spin on the singer’s haunting vocals. The project was only announced a few days ago, but has been in the works for some time.
More than a week ago at Coachella, Harris’ girlfriend, Taylor Swift, slyly teased the joint track. Swift showed off her new bleached hair in an Instagram post, but her photo actually contained a clue that the new song was coming. The back of the superstar’s jacket had the same emblem featured on the song’s key art (above), but no one knew what it represented at the time.
This now marks Harris and Rihanna’s second collaboration. They first teamed up in 2011 for “We Found Love,” which turned into a massive hit, becoming the 24th most successful single of all time in America. It went on to sell over 14.5 million copies, and is Rihanna’s biggest single in her career.
Rihanna and Harris reunited to perform “We Found Love” at Coachella the same weekend Swift wore the “This Is What You Came For” jacket. But no word yet on when the first performance of the new song will be. In the meantime, listen below!
