Calvin and Rihanna are finally about to give us what we came for… and it’s about time too!

It seems like Calvin‘s Rihanna-assisted banger ‘This is What You Came For’ has been around forever. It’s been a UK chart top five mainstay since its radio debut back in late April and it’s already sold over 400,000 copies here alone. Meanwhile, it’s slowly been scaling the US charts, having peaked at No.7 so far and it’s reached number one in Australia.

All this success and still no video…until now.

On 10th June Calvin tweeted this lightning bolt emoji which has been adopted as the symbol of ‘This is What You Came For’ ever since the single artwork was unveiled.


And then today….!

Followed by two foxy photos of RiRi groovin’ her ass off.  WERK!

Looks like we’re in for a moody, clubby video like the one for ‘How Deep Is Your Love’, which we’re completely here for, and it’s coming…


Tweet us @maximumpop if you just wet yourself with excitement. Happens to the best of us.
