Calvin Harris and Rihanna have unveiled the vibrant video for “This Is What You Came For,” the “We Found Love” duo’s new single released in late April.
In the video, Rihanna strolls around a four-sided, white-walled room pulsating with colors and other images, similar to Drake’s “Hotline Bling” clip. Although “This Is What You Came For” is technically a Harris track, the Emil Nava-directed video is all about Rihanna. Harris pops up only sparingly, once as a hazy projection behind the singer and then briefly behind the wheel of a parked luxury sports car.
“This Is What You Came For” video arrived on the same day that Harris unveiled a three-track remix EP dedicated to the smash single, featuring reworkings by Dillon Francis, R3HAB & Henry Fong and Grandtheft. Those remixes are available now through iTunes.
