“Baby, this is what you came for. Lightning strikes every time she moves. And everybody’s watching her, but she’s looking at you..”
The Scottish DJ/producer spent the last couple of days releasing stills and teasers on his social media platforms, featuring behind-the-scenes shots of RiRi dressed in a sparkly dress while posing for cameras. RiRi lent her sultry vocals to the club-ready track and in the music video, she can be seen dancing alone in a giant box in what looks like a warehouse, surrounded by laser lights and some pretty dang awesome backdrop visuals. Oh, and Calvin makes a few cameo appearances in it too but if you blink, you may miss him.
In speaking about the song, Calvin revealed to Beats 1’s Zane Low that he was nervous about playing it for RiRi. “I played it to (Rihanna) for the first time at Coachella. She heard it for the first time two weeks ago. It was me, her, and her manager in the trailer at Coachella. It was the first time anything’s happened like that. I was nervous to play it for her. I changed so many bits from when she first heard it,” Calvin said.
If you ask us, we say RiRi sure looks like she’s 100% lovin’ the track in the music video!
This is not the first time that Calvin and RiRi have worked together on a song, of course. “This Is What You Came For” marks the duo’s 3rd collaboration, following the global chart-topper “We Found Love” and “Where Have You Been”, which were both featured on RiRi’s 6th studio album, “Talk That Talk”, in 2011.
