Watch Rihanna’s Behind-the-Scenes Video for ‘FourFiveSeconds’
Last week, Rihanna premiered her new single ‘FourFiveSeconds,’ featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney. And now the ‘Stay’ singer is sharing a behind-the-scenes look of what the visual will look like.
In the sneak-peek clip, RiRi is on the set as she whispers to her fans the concept of the video, which is being helmed by directors Inez & Vinoodh. The Bajan beauty is au naturel with barely no makeup and slicked-back hair.
The ‘Diamond’ singer explains that West came up with the idea of a stripped-down video with “some real street denim, All-American look." Rihanna then shows the viewers her vintage denim coat and reveals, "This is actually [West’s] jacket, this is some Sean John throwback vintage jacket, that is f---ing major.”
"Denim never goes out of style,” she adds. “It's classic. It's iconic, just like the f---ing Beatles."
True indeed, Ms. Fenty.
West and McCartney doesn’t talk in the BTS video but they are clearly involved in the creative process. Overall, it looks like it’s going to be a bare-bones visual of Yeezy and RiRi performing their emotional lyrics, while Macca just strums on his guitar.
There’s no word on when the video will debut and Rihanna’s eight album, ‘R8,’ has no official release date yet.
However, there are rumors that the powerhouse trio will perform ‘FourFiveSeconds’ together at the 2015 Grammy Awards. We are crossing our fingers and toes for that to happen.
