Fresh off his breakup with superstar girlfriend Taylor Swift, beat maestro Calvin Harris has come out with a brand new tune titled ‘This Is What You Came For‘. Well this is not strictly true; the song first hit the Internet at the end of April when trouble had not yet manifested in paradise. What he has now released is a couple of remixes to the song that features pop star Rihanna.
He has also availed new visuals for the song directed by Emil Nava, who has helmed a number of other Calvin Harris videos besides his work for Ella Goulding, Ed Sheeran, T.I. and a host of other high-profile artists. His newest production has the Barbadian goddess at its center. She is stuck in a cube and as she sings the colors and images projected onto the cube shift from white to black to red to a club full of dancing ravers to a clearing in a forest. Calvin does appear obscurely in the background in parts amid the flashing scenes. He ghosts in behind Rihanna intermittently and appears seated in a sports car streaked with laser lights towards the end.
