Calvin Harris (feat. Rihanna) - "This Is What You Came For"
The song might not be new, but that hook is still fresh! While I’m sure quite a bit of the credit is due to Rihanna’s incredibly delivery, the production still has me bumping 3 years later.
It’s been popping up on my Spotify quite a bit lately and each time it gets me in the mood to dance. The image that it portray’s the idea of the one they’re all looking at looking at you, is sultry and sensual, and it makes me want to dance.
