SINGLE REVIEW: Calvin Harris feat Rihanna – This Is What You Came For
Now this is one collaboration team that had to resurface and give us another bop. And oh they have not disappointed. Calvin Harris and Rihanna have teamed up once again and I don’t think I have been so excited to hear a collaboration in a long time. Maybe except for Ellie Goulding confirming she’s done another song with Calvin Harris that due for release shortly, because that’s already going to be a future hit. “This Is What You Came For” is a mid tempo dance song that focuses on Rihanna’s versatility and is quite noticeably different to anything on her new album “Anti”. Her vocals are what transports this song to that euphoric feeling that pop music is really embracing at the moment. The “ooh oohs” can come across a bit repetitive and annoying but once you get past that I promise you will be singing and bopping along. Production wise this isn’t straying too far away from Calvin Harris normal formula but it is experimenting with the mellow EDM trend that is currently taking over pop. It’s no surprise that this song has already hit number one because when you mix two massive artists you are going to get one epic track.
