With all the heartbreak and controversy surrounding the Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift breakup, there is new piece of news regarding Calvin and Rihanna‘s recent hit release, ‘This Is What You Came For‘. Turns out Taylor Swift co-wrote the track and they’ve all earned a pretty penny from it.

The track generated $511,000 in publishing income based on sales, streaming plays, and radio spins. Calvin and Taylor both have a 50% share, and after the Performance Rights Organisation’s take their cut, they’re left with $454,704 to split. Out of their shares, they’ll get around 85% each, with Sony getting part of each songwriter’s shares.

Calvin will be making more money from the track as he’s the songwriter as well as the artist. The label will earn around $1.2 million. According to a standard contract, Harris should earn about $272,000. He would also get royalties which would be about $161,000 for him and $111,000 for Rihanna.

In total, Taylor Swift will earn about $193,000 which is INR 1,30,00,000, and Calvin Harris would get $354,000, which is approximately INR 2,40,00,000.
