Listen to Calvin Harris and Rihanna's New Collab
After announcing the new collab on Wednesday and dropping a teaser yesterday, Calvin Harris and Rihanna have unleashed their highly anticipated single today.
The catchy electronic pop anthem, entitled "This Is What You Came For," is already proving to be a smash hit, soaring to #1 on the iTunes charts in 36 countries.
The big release comes just days after Rihanna surprised fans with a performance of "We Found Love" during Calvin's mainstage closing set at Coachella. Calvin's girlfriend and global pop star sensation Taylor Swift reportedly hinted at the collab before it was even announced by debuting the single cover art on her jacket at the fest. Calvin told reporters that RiRi actually didn't hear the final product until they met up at the major festival recently.
"I played it to [Rihanna] for the first time at Coachella. She heard it for the first time two weeks ago," he shared. "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."
It all seemed to work out though, as Calvin was quoted saying how "sick" it was to see RiRi vibe with it. Listen to what is sure to be one of the biggest collabs of the year in the Spotify player below and tell us what you think.
