Fans of "FourFiveSeconds"—or anyone who got even mildly exposed to the Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney collaboration in early 2015—have definitely wondered at one point or another who that little goblin voice in the background is. More than a few Beatlemaniacs were also curious how McCartney could seriously only play guitar on such a talent-summit.
Now both mysteries have been solved. "That's me," Sir Paul says of the chirpy, distorted voice in a new BBC interview, laughing. Asked if he was happy about his anonymous vocal, Sir Paul answered, "No, I loved it, are you kidding? What's wrong with that?"
Detectives at the Kanye To The forum had previously done some pitch-shifting in the past and landed on McCartney as the culprit, but now we know for sure, and "FourFiveSeconds" will never be the same.
