Earlier this month, Paul McCartney and Kanye West surprised the music world by releasing a track together entitled Only One. Now everyone’s favourite Bajan superstar, Rihanna, has just released her first single in two years entitled Four Five Seconds, that also features the unlikely duo.
It’s a stripped back acoustic number with McCartney on guitar duties while Kanye shows the more gentle side to his voice as he opts for a speak-sing vocal rather than his regular rapping style. “Now I’m four, five seconds from wildin’/And we got three more days ’til Friday,” croons RiRi in the catchy tune. “I’m just tryna make it back home by Monday, mornin’/I swear I wish somebody would tell me/ Ooh thats all I want.”
It’s rumoured that the song is the first single from Riri’s forthcoming album but rapper Ty Dolla $ign claimed earlier this month that it would feature on Kanye’s next release. Either way, we’re excited about all this collaborating. Keep ‘em coming!
The song is available to download from iTunes.
