Rihanna, Kanye West, Paul McCartney create ‘FourFiveSeconds’

SHARE Rihanna, Kanye West, Paul McCartney create ‘FourFiveSeconds’

First Kanye West and Paul McCartney released their surprise “Only One” song. Now the two superstars have been joined by a third one — Rihanna — to record “FourFiveSeconds,” with Rihanna singing the soft acoustic track now available on iTunes via RihannaNow.com.

On the track, Rihanna sings, “I think I’ve had enough/ I might get a little drunk / I say what’s on my mind / I might do a little time / ‘Cause all of my kindness is taken for weakness.”

Then we next hear West singing, “Woke up an optimist/ Sun was shining, I’m positive/ Then I heard you was talkin’ trash / Hold me back, I’m bout to spaz.” West and Rihanna handle all of the song’s vocals, due

ting on the chorus with McCartney providing keyboards on the song.

It’s unclear if “FourFiveSeconds” will appear on an album by any of the artists, though Ty Dolla $ign told Billboard earlier this month that the song would likely appear on West’s upcoming album.

McCartney and West began work on “Only One” earlier last year in Los Angeles. As they explained in a statement, it all began as “a simple brainstorming session between the two, with McCartney improvising on the keyboards and Kanye vocally sketching and shaping ideas in a stream-of-consciousness riff.”

It’s not known if “FourFiveSeconds,” with its similar mellow vibe, came out of those sessions as well.
