Calvin Harris teased a snippet of his new song with Rihanna not even 24 hours after announcing it, and it sounds SO epic! LISTEN here.
Calvin Harris, 32 and Rihanna, 28, are making musical magic with their first collaboration, This Is What You Came For. The full single won’t drop until April 29, but today, April 28, we were lucky enough to get a 30-second tease. Calling it now: this will be THE song of the summer. Check it out!
Calvin and Rihanna’s new song is most definitely a love song — about Taylor Swift, perhaps? — and we are already obsessed with it. Take a listen:

We can already tell by the lyrics that this is going to be one hell of a hit: “Baby, this is what you came for. Lightning strikes every time she moves,” Rihanna croons over Calvin’s deadly awesome beat. “And everybody’s watching her, but she’s looking at you.” Aww, this has to be about Taylor! No one else has moved Calvin’s world so much, and Taylor is always equally enthralled by Calvin’s music and performances. They’re a couple made in musician heaven!
Calvin announced the release of the song on social media and fans (including Taylor) instantly freaked out. Yep, Tay retweeted Calvin’s message, and posted it on Instagram with the caption “OMG”. Same, Taylor!! She also supported her SO by sporting a cool jacket during Coachella with the logo of Calvin’s new album on the back. Though it came as a surprise that Rihanna is the vocals on this new track rather than Taylor, there’s still hope that Tay will feature on a different song on the album! Anyway, it’s sure to be amazing.
