EDM king Calvin Harris has achieved another incredible feat, as his official video on YouTube for “This Is What You Came For” with Rihanna has surpassed 1 billion views. Think about just how many plays that is for a second. It’s also important to note that this is just the official music video on YouTube, which is not the medium that everyone chooses to listen to the song. The music video was also uploaded quite some time after the actual song was released. We all know how much YouTube is used for music streaming, so if we were to combine all the times the song was played on YouTube, I know we would be talking about an even more gigantic number.
Rihanna and Calvin Harris are no strangers to success and big numbers. They have put out hits before, but it’s still stunning to see two artists just dominate an industry like this. Congratulations to them and check out the video below!
