If ‘FourFiveSeconds’ is indicative of the material from the new Rihanna album, due imminently, then we’re in for a vastly different beast than her previous musical outings, which have been laced with a likeable, if not formulaic, blend of R&B, dance and pop.
Here, however, it’s Ri Ri completely stripped back and in acoustic mode and the official video, which premiered overnight, follows suit.
No flash costumes or sets here. Not even a hint of colour. Just Rihanna, Kanye, Sir Paul and a proliferation of denim. That, and an entirely likeable track.
