Congratulations to Calvin Harris and Rihanna (and Taylor Swift too!) on the monumental achievement of ONE BILLION streams on YouTube with their official music video of “This Is What you Came For.” This marks the third time that an EDM song has hit that ridiculous milestone, joining the ranks of Major Lazer’s “Lean On” and Avicii’s “Wake Me Up.”
1 billion views on This is what you came for video 👀

The song has also been a mainstay on mainstream radio peaking at #3 overall on the Billboard Hot 100 while remaining a steady top 10 fixture for the first few months of summer.
If you’re wondering what the most played video on YouTube is, it is still “Gangnam Style” by PSY, with a staggering 2.697 billion views.
