Earlier this year we speculated about rumors of a Kanye West and Rihanna collaborative tour coming this year. The rumors seemed to hold weight as a picture has circulated on social media which advertised the tour, and the tour was confirmed by a source to LA Times’ writer Gerrick D. Kennedy. And who wouldn’t want to see ‘FourFiveSeconds’ live?! We tried not to get our hopes up though, until something was more official and now today the first date has been announced! Although the link has been since deleted by LiveNation (perhaps they posted the link too early), the first announced date of the tour will be July 25th, 2015 in Laululava, Estonia (Europe). Tickets go on sale, at least as originally announced, March 5th. Stay tuned for more information.
After releasing a behind the scenes sneak peak and a couple video teasers, Rihanna has released the video for her Kanye West and Paul McCartney collaboration ‘FourFiveSeconds’. ‘FourFiveSeconds’, available now on iTunes, is the first taste of Rihanna’s highly anticipated R8 album, and according to reports, it may be a track that fans can hear her and Kanye perform live on tour this year. The black and white video (like the song) is simple yet great, showing the three against a white background in their best denim fits. Check the official music video, and its behind the scenes clip, below.
A new images have surfaced that suggests a Kanye West and Rihanna tour is coming this year! Get excited people! While the tour is not yet confirmed, a picture has circulated on social media that advertises a Kanye x Rihanna 2015 tour. This tour has also been confirmed by a source to the LA Times’ writer Gerrick D. Kennedy. You should never get your hopes up too much, but this tour would certainly make sense as the two recently collaborated for their single ‘FourFiveSeconds‘ with Paul McCartney. Another piece of evidence is that in 2014 Rihanna auctioned off a VIP package for charity which included tickets for a 2015 Kanye West tour. Also this would not be the first time the two joined forces for a tour, as Rihanna joined Mr. West for his acclaimed Glow in the Dark Tour, not to mention the fact that the two performed together this past weekend at a Super Bowl party. Get excited and stay tuned!
Now Kanye is not only the first, but also the second, rapper to ever do a song with The Beatles’ legendary frontman Paul McCartney, as the two have combined talents with the lovely Rihanna for her track ‘FourFiveSeconds’. The song is available now on iTunesand was released via Roc Nation and Rihanna’s Westbury Road Entertainment company.
To kick off the new year, fans heard the first collaboration between Kanye West and Paul McCartney, the beautiful ballad ‘Only One‘ dedicated to Kanye’s late mother, Dr. Donda West. However, according to rapper Ty Dolla $ign there is more Kanye and Paul to come. During his interview will Billboard, Ty revealed that another song has been recorded between Kanye and the legendary Beatle, which also features Ty himself and Rihanna. No exact word on a release date, but stay tuned for more details!
