It’s still strange to see this trio together but oddly, it works. We’ve told you about the unlikely trio of Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney releasing not only the single FourFiveSeconds but a behind-the-scenes look into the official video. Well, now the video is here.
Directed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, the video dropped this morning, its charismatic and magnetic but also simple and classic with lots of denim. The song itself, FourFiveSeconds is an acoustic song which showcases not only Rihanna’s finest-ever vocal performance but, obviously the influence that Beatles legend, Paul McCartney has had on Kanye West. It’s been said that Paul even co-produced several tracks on Kanye’s new album.
FourFiveSeconds is out now at iTunes and it’s the first single from Rihanna’s as-yet-untitled new album as well as Kanye’s album, too.
All three will perform together at the Grammys this Sunday, February 8th.
