The new single, “FourFiveSeconds,” will appear on both Rihanna and West’s upcoming albums, as this collaboration is an extension of West’s and McCartney’s previous single, “Only One.”
Ty Dolla $ign joins West and Rihanna on vocals in “FourFiveSeconds,” while McCartney is featured on keyboards once again. The stripped-down, guitar-driven acoustic track really shows off Riri’s vocal range and may be what we can expect from her eighth studio album.
This latest release may have come as a surprise to fans, but West previewed the track straight from his laptop last Wednesday during a surprise appearance at the iHeartMedia Music Summit.
“Now I’m FourFiveSeconds from wildin’/And we got three more days ’til Friday/I’m just try’na make it back home by Monday, morning’/I swear I wish somebody would tell me/Ooh that’s all I want,” sings Rihanna.
Even though the Barbadian superstar has been laying low music-wise, she’s still making fashion headlines. Just last week, she won a multimillion-dollar legal battle against U.K. High Street store Topshop over a T-shirt with her image on it. And she attended the Daily Front Row Fashion Los Angeles Awards wearing a sequined coat with fur trim, paired with gold-accented Christian Louboutins. Not to mention, she is now the creative director for athletic brand Puma.
The mega-star still gets excited about the release of her new music — captured in the Instagram video below.
