Calvin Harris and Rihanna release the music video to their latest joint track, "This Is What You Came For." The two previously collaborated on Rihanna's 2011 hit singles "We Found Love" and "Where Have You Been," both undeniable pop anthems.

The video focuses solely on Rihanna, who sports a gorgeous silver jumpsuit, designed by recent Pratt Institute graduate Isabel Hall. The singer dances about as smoke fills the room, and projected scenes of clubs and cars surround her. Those vignettes, coupled with multicolored laser beams strongly reflect the EDM nature of the track.

While Harris only makes a brief appearance, it's hard not to notice his strong presence in the video as he takes a power stance behind Rihanna for a brief moment around the two minute mark. The video itself holds a strong resemblance to some sort of "We Found Love" and "Hotline Bling" hybrid, as a large arbitrary cube surrounded by dancing strangers is a focal point in the video, but it works with the simplicity and catchiness of the song. Nevertheless, when Harris and Rihanna join forces, it's sure to be a success. Check out the full video below.
