Rihanna may be busy touring for her eighth studio album, Anti, but that doesn’t mean the “Work” songstress isn’t taking some time to have a little fun. In a series of new Instagram videos shared by Rihanna’s BFF, Melissa Forde, Rihanna jams along to new tracks “Too Good” and “This Is What You Came For” while getting her nails done in preparation for the next stop on her “Anti World Tour.”
It’s been only one week since Rihanna and Calvin Harris announced the arrival of their new track, “This Is What You Came For,” which serves as a follow-up to the duo’s highly successful 2011 hit “We Found Love,” but it looks like Rihanna still can’t get enough of their collaborative single as she sings and dances along to the upbeat track in a series of new Instagram videos shared to Forde’s account on May 7.
In the black-and-white videos, Rihanna can be seen sitting patiently while getting her nails done on what appears to be her tour bus following the conclusion of her “Anti World Tour” stop in San Jose on May 6. In the first video, Rihanna can be seen bopping her head along to the beat of “This Is What You Came For” before turning towards the camera to mouth along to lyrics, “Baby, this is what you came for / Lightning strikes every time she moves / And everybody’s watching her / But she’s looking at you, oh, oh.”
In another video, Rihanna, alongside Melissa Forde and assistant Jennifer Rosales, can be seen jamming along to her new feature track with Drake, “Too Good,” which appears on the rapper’s recently released Views album that made its debut last week.
The track, which serves as a follow-up to the duo’s chart-topping “Work” single that dropped earlier this year, marks the fourth collaboration for the rumored couple following the success of hits like 2011’s “What’s My Name?” and “Take Care.”
The news comes just one week after Calvin Harris and Drake gushed over their new collaborations with Rihanna, with Harris revealing to E! News that he was actually “nervous” to present “This Is What You Came For” to Rihanna for the first time.

“I played it to [Rihanna] for the first time at Coachella. She heard it for the first time two weeks ago,” Harris explained of their latest collaboration. “It was me, her and her manager in the trailer at Coachella.”
The EDM DJ continues, “It was the first time anything’s happened like that. I was nervous to play it for her. I changed so many bits from when she first heard it.”
Despite Calvin Harris’ feelings of nervousness over the track, the DJ admits that it was “sick” to watch “the vibe hitting her and see she was into it.”
Similarly, Drake opened up about his “Too Good” collaboration with Rihanna during an interview with Zane Lowe for OVO Sound Radio via Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio last week, telling Lowe that that he and Rihanna “do well as a team.”
“‘Too Good’ came to fruition after we did ‘Work.’ [I was like] I think I have one that would follow this one up really nicely. It was like a flawless victory when she sent it back,” Drake explains. “Every nuance, every cadence was perfect…That’s what makes the record. We’re not forcing some story on people. A lot of the music and energy we have is genuine. We have a genuine energy,” Billboard reports.
