Rihanna Strips ‘FourFiveSeconds’ Video Down to Basics With Kanye and Paul McCartney

The clip is stark and bare in contrast to the pop star's previous visuals

Update: All three musicians will join forces for a live performance of “FourFiveSeconds” at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony.

It’s a tale as old as time: Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney walk onto a sparse set with only a white backdrop, decked out in their finest denim and leather, to shoot the music video (directed by Inez & Vinoodh) for the Barbadian superstar’s newest single, “FourFiveSeconds.” It’s a hoot to see the spritely Beatle do his best to keep up with the youngsters at his side, but the visual pairing of the three makes a starkly simple and lovely picture, allowing the acoustic track to speak for itself. Watch Rihanna, Ye, and Sir Paul do their respective things above.
