Kanye West is on deck to perform two songs at the 2015 Grammys including his surprise collaboration with Rihanna and Paul McCartney “FourFiveSeconds.”
Twenty-one-time GRAMMY winner Kanye West, who’s up for two awards this year (Best Rap/Sung Collaboration and Best Rap Song for “Bound 2” with Charlie Wilson) will perform two songs during the GRAMMY telecast on CBS, Feb. 8th at 8p (ET/PT).
While Kanye and his team have been secretive about the deets of his upcoming performance, they did issue a press release that revealed he’ll “deliver a never-before-seen solo performance”. Will it be for his Nori-inspired song “Only One”? Hmm….
The Grammy stage will also see the debut of his “FourFiveSeconds” collaborative performance with 18-time GRAMMY winner/Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Paul McCartney and seven-time GRAMMY winner Rihanna (see the brand new “FourFiveSeconds” video here).
And on the heels of their exciting performance at the DirecTV pre-Super Bowl party, there’s a lot of speculation about RiRi and ‘Ye going on tour together.
Taking place at the STAPLES Center in LA, the GRAMMYS will be hosted by LL Cool J and will feature performances from Common & John Legend (“Glory”), Beyonce, Usher, Pharrell and Sam Smith.
