REVIEW: Calvin Harris // Rihanna - This is What You Came For out on Columbia / Sony Music

The World's Highest-Paid DJ, Calvin Harris, returns to team-up with the amazing Rihanna after the enormous success of “Found Love” back in 2011, a song that remained at the top of the Billboard Chart for 10 weeks in a  row.

The new single is titled “This Is What You Came For” and the sound is sensibly more relaxed and tropicalized than it was for “Found Love”, which was closer to the prog-house roots of the scottish DJ and Producer.

Once again the two demonstrate their terrific talent: Calvin Harris as a producer that with his skills has been able to win several awards and collect an impressive amount of golden and platinum records; Rihanna as a real 360° artist, able to perform any genre from hip hop to ballades, from pure pop to dance music, never losing not even a crumb of his transcendental charisma and attitude.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]When Calvin Harris collaborates again with Rihanna you expect something truly outstanding and the latest anthem This Is What You Came For represents the current sound on radio stations. Deep melodic house with tropical melodies, xylophone themes, beautiful strings and synths that keep the radio djs happy and gives to the listeners instantly a big wide smile. If you like summery relaxing positive erotic sounds this track will satisfy you 100%. Lets hope  to see it ride high in the pop charts and it deserves it. #PureGold Love it[/content]
