This is what we’ve been waiting for! Five years after first collaborating on their worldwide smash “We Found Love” off 2011’s Talk That Talk, Calvin Harris and Rihanna have reunited on the appropriately titled “This Is What You Came For“!
Could this be a direct response to all the haters that were mad there weren’t any pop bangerz on RiRi‘s ANTI? I think yes! Once again, UK club king Calvin trades Rihanna‘s current bossy ‘tude for full-on disco ecstasy on “This Is What You Came For,” a song that builds and builds to a climax that’s so arena-ready it practically begging to be 2016’s Song of the Summer. “Baby, 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/ You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh/ You, oh, oh, you, oh,” Ri blissfully declares throughout the glittering, euphoric synthesizers and pulsating club rhythms.
The song’s structure is very much like “We Found Love” with its Euro-friendly breakdowns and repeat-heavy lyricism, but yet again, it’s Ri‘s luxurious vocal approach that take’s the song to a whole other level. No one can do it quite like she can. Simple, sleek and effortless – LOVE!! LOVE!!
