Calvin Harris previews new single featuring Rihanna – listen

'This Is What You Came For' is set to drop on Friday (April 29)

Calvin Harris has posted a preview of his new single with Rihanna ‘This Is What You Came For’.

The track, which is due to drop in full tomorrow (April 29), is their second single together following their chart topping 2011 single ‘We Found Love’, which was produced by the Scottish artist and featured on Rihanna’s ‘Talk That Talk’ album. 

Since then Harris has become one of the most successful and well-paid DJs in the world, as well as a festival headliner in his own right. He announced the single earlier today (April 28) but has now posted a short audio clip on Twitter which you can listen to below.


Just last weekend he was joined on stage by Rihanna as he closed this year’s Coachella. She joined Harris for ‘We Found Love’, while Big Sean played his song ‘I Don’t Fuck With You’ and John Newman sang on ‘Blame’, his 2014 collaboration with Harris.

Rihanna is heading to the UK and Ireland later this summer. She will play the following live dates:

Aviva Stadium, Dublin (June 21)
Wembley Stadium, London (June 24)
Ricoh Arena, Coventry (June 25)
Hampden Park, Glasgow (June 27)
Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester (June 29)

She recently released a new video for album track ‘Needed Me’. Directed by cult favourite Harmony Korine, Rihanna announced the video through a series of Instagram posts.

Korine is known for his work on Spring Breakers, Kids and Gummo and has previously directed videos for The Black Keys, Sonic Youth and Cat Power.


Calvin Harris, meanwhile, will return to his native Scotland to headline T In The Park in July.
