Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney to Perform at 2015 Grammy Awards
The singer is on the road to releasing her eighth studio album, ‘R8,’ and kicking off 2015 strong. Soon after dropping the emotion-packed, minimalist video for ‘FourFiveSeconds’ with Kanye West and Sir Paul McCartney, it was announced that the unlikely trio are hitting the stage at the 57th Grammy Awards.
West, a 56-time nominee with 21 Grammys under his belt, will hit the stage for the first time in six years. If you recall, 'Ye has had it out with the Grammys in the past for his perceived snubbing of well-warranted awards. Yeezy is said to deliver a never-before-seen solo performance in addition to performing a medley with 18-time Grammy recipient Paul McCartney and of course, Rihanna.
Kanye and Rihanna prepped fans for what's to come when they took the stage at the Direct TV Pre-Super Bowl Party on Saturday (Jan. 31). The songstress brought out Yeezy for ‘All of the Lights’ and he even did a brief medley of his classics.
Their new single and surprise performance ignited rumors of a possible Kanye/Rihanna tour in 2015. Complex Magazine released an Instagram photo on Monday (Feb. 2), which hinted that a tour was already in the works. Rih and Yeezy are both in the Roc Nation family so a joint tour is not unlikely. In 2008, she opened up for Ye’s Glow in the Dark Tour.
As we await more Rihanna and Kanye tour news, check out the Grammy Award-winning artists alongside living legend McCartney at the Grammys on Feb. 8 at 8PM EST.
