The superstar pairing of DJ Calvin Harris and Barbadian pop goddess Rihanna has already resulted in their latest single ‘This Is What You Came For’ hitting No.1 here in Australia, but now the track has an official video to boot.
And it’s notching up the views (and how) since seeing the light of day at the end of last week. i.e. How’s 15 million grab you?
The opening few scenes in it feature a white box; floating above salt flats, perched in a studio set-up, hovering above some lush greenery and, seemingly, little Ri-Ri trapped there inside it.
Cunningly, the director (in this case Emil Nava) has utilised said white box as his canvas, peppering it with a mass of light projections that turn an otherwise drab cube into something masterfully colourful.
Naturally, they know better than to send Rihanna out into the wilds, filming 99% of it in the confines of the studio where they have the perfect conditions to make music clip magic.
