Rihanna's return to music is officially in full swing as the Bajan singer has just shot the first music video for the first single off of her new album, FourFiveSeconds, featuring Kanye West, and Paul McCartney of the legendary Beatles.
In a behind-the-scenes clip found at Complex, RiRi explains the process and direction of the minimalistic music video: "We are shooting the music video for 'FourFive' with Kanye and Paul McCartney," she said. "This is the first song that my fans are going to hear from the new album and the first visual they see."
On both the single's cover art and the video itself, the trio stands before a white screen rocking all-denim looks, which Rihanna said was all 'Ye's idea: "Kanye came up with the idea of doing just some real street demin all-American type look," she whispered. "This is actually his jacket that is some Sean John throwback vintage jacket that is f*****g major... Denim never goes out of style."
The collaboration with Kanye West and icon Paul McCartney was released on Jan. 24 to the surprise of the Navy and will be performed live for the first time at the Grammys on Feb. 8. The song currently sits at No. 3 on the iTunes music chart.
