WATCH: “FourFiveSeconds” Music Video With Rihanna, Kanye West, Paul McCartney
The music video for Rihanna’s new song “FourFiveSeconds” premiered on Tuesday. Watch below!
As Gossip Cop reported, Rihanna surprised fans when she released the track last month. The song, musically different than anything the star has ever done before, also features singing from Kanye West, with Paul McCartney on guitar. It’s the first single from Rihanna’s highly-anticipated upcoming album, which does not yet have a release date.
In the black-and-white clip, Rihanna, West and McCartney all wear matching denim as they emotionally perform the song. In a behind-the-scenes teaser shared last week, Rihanna explained, “Kanye came up with the idea of doing just some real street denim, All-American type look…Denim never goes out of style. It’s iconic, just like the f*cking Beatles.” The video was shot by Inez and Vinoodh, the award-winning photography duo.
The video debuted just as the Recording Academy announced Rihanna, West, and McCartney will perform the song for the first time at this weekend’s Grammys. The performance will mark West’s return to the Grammy stage after a six-year absence, and he will do a solo song, too. A 21-time winner, he’s up for two awards at the 2015 ceremony. Rihanna is nominated for one, and while McCartney isn’t in the race this year, he’s received 18 Grammys over the years and was named the Lifetime Achievement recipient twice. Not too shabby.
