Calvin Harris and Rihanna connect on their new song, "This Is What You Came for." The song kicks off in familiar territory as Ri's voice drips over a quick-flow of skittering notes. Suddenly, the beat intensifies and the vocals explode like a high-octane shot to the heart, reverberating with a searing sense of purpose that urgently sucks you in to its addictive hook. It's an instant ear pleaser. Of course, this isn't the first time the two artists have worked together. Previously, the two collaborated on the blockbuster hit "We Found Love" and "Where Have You Been." Unlike their earlier releases, Calvin is actually billed first on this track.

Even more recently, Ri made a memorable stop at Calvin's headlining set at Coachella to perform "We Found Love" where Calvin's girlfriend Taylor Swift collectively freaked out for all of us. Naturally, she's pretty excited about this new one too. Listen to "This Is What You Came for" on iTunes here or listen through Spotify below.
