After all the teases of video still on Instagram, mega DJ-producer Calvin Harris has just released the music video for the banger “This Is What You Came For” featuring Rihanna. As you have expected, it’s every bit sultry and wistful.
In the clip, Rihanna strolls around a white-walled room flashing with different colors and other images, reminiscent of Drake‘s “Hotline Bling” video. She stares longingly into the camera amid dreamy backdrops that perfectly match the tempo and mood of the hypnotice dance track.
Although “This Is What You Came For” is technically a Calvin Harris song, the Emil Nava-directed video is all about RiRi. The DJ pops up only now and then, once as a subtle projection behind the singer and then very briefly in a parked luxury sports car.
The music video arrived the same day that Calvin released a remix EP of three tracks dedicated to the smash song, featuring reworks by R3HAB & Henry Fong, Grandtheft, and Dillon Francis. The EP is now available on iTunes here.
