Just last week we finally got to hear this slightly unexpected collaboration between Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney. Though Ty Dolla $ign leaked this information weeks ago, it still felt a bit surprising. And after getting a few previews and sneak peaks behind-the-scenes, the full video has finally been released.
Just like the song itself, the “FourFiveSeconds” video is quite simplistic. The Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin-directed visuals features the trio in black and white in front of a white backdrop. It fits with the acoustic guitar and raw vocals perfectly. This is one of those times when less is truly more.
The trio of will be performing “FourFiveSeconds” for the first time at this year’s Grammys.
Update: Kanye will be performing twice at the Grammy’s. Here’s the official confirmation:
“Returning to the GRAMMY stage after six years, West is set to deliver a never-before-seen solo performance as well as a world debut collaborative performance with 18-time GRAMMY winner and Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Paul McCartney and seven-time GRAMMY winner and current nominee Rihanna.”
