Song of the Day #2,901: ‘This is What You Came For’ – Calvin Harris Feat. Rihanna

calvin_harris_rihanna_came_forRihanna’s second appearance in the top ten comes courtesy of her third collaboration with DJ Calvin Harris, following ‘Where Have You Been?‘ and the smash hit ‘We Found Love.’

I don’t know if this single will reach the heights of that one, but it’s definitely destined for sustained chart success and a long life on the dance floor.

This song is most likely about Harris’ then-girlfriend, Taylor Swift, from whom he recently split.

Shooting a video with Rihanna looking this freaking good is a pretty nice way to rebound.

[Verse 1: Rihanna]
Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
And everybody’s watching her
But she’s looking at you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, oh, oh

[Chorus: Rihanna]
Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
And everybody’s watching her
But she’s looking at you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, oh, oh

[Post-Chorus: Rihanna]
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
Oh, oh

[Verse 2: Rihanna]
We go fast with the game we play
Who knows why it’s gotta be this way?
We say nothing more than we need
I say “your place” when we leave

[Chorus: Rihanna]
Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
And everybody’s watching her
But she’s looking at you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, oh, oh

[Post-Chorus: Rihanna]
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
Oh, oh

[Bridge: Rihanna]
Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
Yeah

[Chorus: Rihanna]
Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
And everybody’s watching her
But she’s looking at you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, oh, oh

[Post-Chorus: Rihanna]
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
Oh, oh

    I suppose if I were to find myself on a dance floor, this would be a decent song with which to bust my moves, but since that ain’t happening, I’ll pass on this one on my radio.
