Rihanna Releases ‘FourFiveSeconds’ Video Feat. Kanye West + Paul McCartneyby Maggie Malach | PopCrush
Only a month into 2015 and Rihanna‘s already got one of the hottest songs of the year! Earlier today (Feb. 3), the singer released the video for her ‘FourFiveSeconds.’
We love how the visual echoes the nature of the track itself. ‘FourFiveSeconds’ is a stripped-down version of Rihanna, complete with an acoustic guitar, and the black-and-white video matches the elegance of the sound.
The video opens with a head-on shot of the songstress, who is laidback and lovely as she belts the beginning of the song. Eventually, she is joined by her collaborators, Kanye West and Paul McCartney.
Don’t let the simplicity of the video fool you. It’s got a raw feel to it, as if the three musicians stepped in front of a white backdrop and let the music do the talking. It totally works — we’re transfixed on both the beauty of the song itself and the performers who brought it to life.
