Video: FourFiveSeconds – Rihanna, Kanye West And Paul McCartney


After dropping teasing hints about her new album for months and surprising the world by dropping a new single under her new own imprint, Westbury Road Entertainment, Rihanna has released the hotly anticipated music video for her collaboration with Sir Paul McCartney and Kanye West FourFiveSeconds.

Rihanna is known for her daring and risqué outfits as well as bold visuals which are often controversial but she offers none of that in this stripped down, black and white video to accompany the mostly acoustic song. Instead we are offered the jeans-clad trio earnestly crooning and playing to us in close ups and mostly solo shots in an unusual aspect ratio for most music videos with the occasional delightful frames of the entire trio. This is Rihanna giving us herself in a raw, emotional and unfiltered way that is in some ways reminiscent of what she gave us in Stay.

FourFiveSeconds is at No 4 on iTunes chart behind Missy Elliot’s Work It, which gained massive sales and airplay boosts thanks to a well received Super Bowl Half Time Performance. It also debuted at No 37 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart making Sir Paul the oldest act to chart here. It also currently sits on Billboards other charts at No. 19 on the Digital Songs, No 12 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and No 54 on The Hot 100.

Watch it below:

Rihanna, McCartney and West will perform FourFiveSeconds at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards that will be held on February 8, 2015 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
