Rihanna, Kanye West And Paul McCartney Keep Things Simple In “FourFiveSeconds” Video
Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney keep things simple in the music video for "FourFiveSeconds." This is just one week after the single was debuted. The Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin-directed video, shot in black and white, shows the trio dressed in all denim—something Kanye was very particular about. “Kanye came up with the idea of doing some real street All American denim type look,” Rihanna said when they debuted the behind-the-scene footage from the shoot. It perfectly matches the stripped down acoustics and tone of the song. Rather sounding like a single, it feels like more of a jam session, which is completely captured on film. "FourFiveSeconds" is reportedly going to be on Kanye and Rihanna's upcoming album.
The two megastars are rumored to be going on tour together this year. The first sign came in December when Rihanna tweeted out an auction that was apart of the fundraising campaign for her Clara Lionel Foundation. In the auction the VIP experience of an as-of-yet unannounced Kanye West tour was up for bid for $15K. The exact description read: “Be Kanye West’s special front row VIP guest for his upcoming North American 2015 tour. Experience a rare opportunity meet & greet with the icon.” Last weekend at DirecTV’s Pre-Super Bowl Concert, Rih brought out Kanye on stage to perform. Could this be a sign of what their plans are for 2014?
