And it's here!
Just like it was heavily hinted in the behind-the-scenes clip, Rihanna's "FourFiveSeconds" video featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney is as simple as it gets. No CGI, no elaborate sets, no wardrobe changes or anything of the sort. We wouldn't even be surprised if it was all recorded with an iPhone, but it definitely could pass for a denim GAP ad.
Directed by photographer duo Inez & Vinoodh, the understated black and white video finds Rihanna wishing somebody would start some mess with her as her frustrated emotions get the best of the singer. Midway through the video, Rih is seen in deep thought before wiping away tears and retreating.
Kanye also brings his buck attitude to the clip while Paul McCartney continues playing his guitar.
Watch the video below:
"FourFiveSeconds" won't be the last of Rihanna's collaboration with Kanye. According to Complex, they may be going on a joint tour together! The website obtained an image teasing a 2015 tour with the two superstars.
Last December, Rihanna's Diamond Ball also kind of spilled the beans when they auctioned off a Kanye West 2015 VIP tour package for an undisclosed amount with bidding starting at $15,000.
Meanwhile, the word is still buzzing that Rihanna's album R8 may be dropping during Grammy week. After teasing that she would be performing a few weeks ago by tweeting out eight anchor emojis, the Grammy Awards finally confirmed the news this morning that Rih, Kanye and Paul McCartney will be performing "FourFiveSeconds" at the event, making it the perfect opportunity for the empress to break the Internet that night.
What do you think of the new video?
