‘We Found Love’ is one of the biggest selling songs of all time and has ensured that Calvin Harris won’t have to worry about there being no more state pension when he hits 65. In fact he could probably now afford to be the national pension fund himself. Aside from selling loads, WFL was also spectacularly entertaining, exhilarating, even heady at points. He roped Rihanna in to record the vocals and we’re very glad he did. They’re back again with a new collaboration called ‘This Is What You Came For’ and when it was announced the day before its release it had dance lovers eating their own hands with suspense.
If you were hoping for ‘We Found Love’ round 2 you’ll be disappointed. ‘This Is What You Came For’ is more generic dance number than pure euphoric banger and considering the two powerhouse stars involved in its birth that’s quite a disappointing and underwhelming baby. It’s the collaboration everyone’s been waiting for and will continue to wait for again, until they get it right.
