This Is What You Came For is the new single song by Scottish DJ, singer Calvin Harris with Barbadian singer and songwriter Rihanna which is expected to release via itunes this Friday 29th April 2016 Digitally. Earlier Wednesday, Harris vaguely teased info on the new track. The track is currently slated to release, just days after Drake is expected to release his highly anticipated album, Views From the 6
This is the second time both artists collaborated in a song, the first time was with the worldwide hit “We Found Love”, released back in 2011. Harris also produced Rihanna’s smash hit “Where Have You Been”, but he wasnt credited as a featured artist. Rihanna joined Harris on stage at Coachella during Weekend 1 to perform their smash “We Found Love” to a crowd that included Taylor Swift and Lorde.
It’s been a busy week for music fans around the world, that’s for sure, as Beyonce dropped her sixth studio album, Lemonade, over the weekend after her HBO special visual presentation.
We do wonder why the Scottish DJ Calvin Harris and Rihanna didn’t release the single when she put in a special performance at the Coachella Festival, though! It would have been an extraordinary atmosphere to hear the new single!
We are still not sure whether the single will be part of a Rihanna album later on or Harris’ upcoming album, which he is working on after “Motion” in 2014. Whichever place it lands, we are sure it will climb the charts as always when it comes to a Rihanna-Harris production! Rihanna’s last album “Anti” dropped in January, 2016.
While we have yet to hear a snippet or preview of the record, Calvin did share the song’s artwork earlier today on twitter along with the announcement. Tweeted “.@Rihanna and @CalvinHarris team up again for “This Is What You Came For”. Look out for the new track this Friday!”
Release Date : April 29th 2016
