Original Story (2/2): Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney commanded our attention when they dropped their acoustic anthem to letting loose, "FourFiveSeconds," last week. And it looks like the music video will be just as tantalizing.
Rihanna revealed the first look at the video on her official YouTube channel, showing the trio hanging out in the awesome all-denim looks we saw on the track's official artwork. Rih adds that Kanye came up with the idea of doing a "real street-denim, all-American type look." Why? "Denim never goes out of style," says Rih. "It's classic, it's iconic, just like the f*cking Beatles." Cha-ching.
Rih also reveals that she's actually rocking one of Yeezus' own vintage jackets in the vid, further proving the notion that if you're close with Kanye West, your fashion game will improve on a near-daily basis. (Just ask Kim Kardashian, who was already stylish as all get-out in her pre-Yeezy days.)
No details about when we'll see the full video, but in the meantime, keep yourself busy with live performances from Rihanna's DirecTV Super Bowl Concert (below) that included arena-sized renditions of "We Found Love" and "Diamonds." Plus, Kanye dropped in to perform his and Rih's collaboration, "All of the Lights," and give the first-ever live performance of "Only One," his other January song recorded with Paul McCartney.
