Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney release new track, ‘FourFiveSeconds’

Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth and Ty Dolla $ign also feature.

Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney have put out a surprise collaboration in the shape of minimal, cello-backed new song, ‘Four Five Seconds’. 

Reportedly set to feature on West’s new album, it’s the direct opposite of anything on ‘Yeezus’. Like December’s ‘Only One’ track, McCartney has a minimal role, with Kanye leading on vocals alongside Rihanna. 

Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth is also involved in the track, alongside Ty Dolla $ign and producers Mike Dean and Dallas Austin. 

‘FourFiveSeconds’ is available to download on Rihanna’s official site and iTunes. 

Rihanna is expected to appear at this year’s GRAMMYs, after the Awards Tweeted eight navy symbols, translating to ‘R8” (the new Rihanna album). 

Listen to ‘Four Five Seconds’ below.
