Similar to Drake’s “Hotline Bling” video, RiRi’s visuals take place in a four-dimensional green screen box. But instead of a variety of colors engulfing the artist, Rihanna finds herself in a number of places—one moment she’s leading a rave, the next she’s in a blissful forest.
In the mix of the Emil Nava-directed video, RiRi dances about joyfully or looks into the camera intently as she boldly declares, “this is what you came for.” There’s also a bunch of lasers beaming about the Bajan singer.
Harris, who recently ended a relationship with Taylor Swift, also appears in the electrifying video as he pops up randomly behind Rihanna. He also shows up in a sleek sports car towards the end. But Rihanna is clearly the star of the show in her simple silvery-grey jumpsuit that’s just sheer enough to catch glimpses of her silhouette.
This is the second song that the two have collaborated on after 2011’s “We Found Love.” Rihanna is also set to head out on the European leg of her ANTI tour in a few days.
Yes, Rihanna, this IS what we came for. Check out the video above.
