Calvin Harris + Rihanna Give The Song Of The Summer The Video It Deserves
Summer is here.
There he was, an embattled Calvin Harris leaving a Los Angeles gym, presumably days after he found out—like the rest of us—that his ex-flame Taylor Swift had moved on with another British cad, Tom Hiddleston.
As the paparazzi swarmed and pestered him with questions about his future, Harris—who by all intents and purposes should have been at home drowning his sorrows in a vat of Ben and Jerry’s—turned to the cameras and smiled.
"What's next for you, bro?" an inquisitive paps asked, hoping that the mega-DJ might break into a million pieces and divulge that he was headed home to try and glue his heart back together again. "I got a music video with Rihanna out, tonight," Harris shot back.
Harris was of course referring to the summer stomper "This Is What You Came For," his third, and maybe best, collaboration with Rihanna. The house anthem has been dominating the charts since its April release, and it finally has a video to go along with it.
As for the visuals, the notoriously attention-averse Harris rightfully cedes this one to RiRi, who stunts the whole way through in a James Turrell-style cube that would make even Drake jealous. Directed by Emil Nava, the clip is a testament to anyone who’s ever been heartbroken and is looking for a way to heal: Just make a music video with Rihanna. Easy, right?
