“FourFiveSeconds” just got the video treatment. Check out Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney in the black-and-white minimalist video that matches the minimalism of the track. Plus, are ‘Ye & Rih going on tour together? Go inside…..
Rihanna dropped her first single from her upcoming album just last week. And the visuals are already here.
“FourFiveSeconds” is a complete departure for the pop princess with its guitar driven melody and pared down pop theatrics. And we must say, we’re feeling the unexpected freshness of it all.
On the new single, Rihanna attempts to make her vocals the focal point instead of a usual catchy pop beat. She and Kanye bring the passion when singing about being thisclose to wilin’ out and breaking free. Rebel behavior has become expected of these two, but this time it is set against a simplistic backdrop of black and white visuals.
Sir Paul McCartney drives the melody on his guitar in the Inez & Vindooh-directed video. And he just confirmed via Twitter that he will be performing the track alongside Rihanna & Kanye at this Sunday’s GRAMMYS.
Check out the “FourFiveSeconds” video below:
Over the weekend, Rih & ‘Ye took the stage together at the DirecTV pre-Super Bowl party. And now, they’re rumored to be going on tour together. This image of a Rihanna/Kanye 2015 tour popped up online, and most sites report an “anonymous source sent to them. So, take it how you wanna.
Rihanna is also set to release a concept album for her upcoming animated film, Home. It’s unclear if this will serve as her 8th studio album she’s been teasing for months.
