Rihanna teamed up with Kanye West and Sir Paul McCartney for a new project called Four Five Seconds.
It’s been almost a year since Rihanna, 26, released her last single.
Paul McCartney is one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century, selling more than 100 million albums as part of the Beatles, Wings and as a solo artist.
Kanye West has previously collaborated with both Rihanna and Paul McCartney, though never before as a trio.
Four Five Seconds is a move away from Rihanna and Kanye West’s previous work together on All of the Lights (from Kanye West’s album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy) and Run This Town, where the pair teamed up with Jay-Z.
This time the track is a slower, acoustic guitar-driven number.
Kanye West played a snippet of Four Five Seconds to industry experts at the iHeartMedia music summit on January 21.
It’s yet to be confirmed if the song will appear on an album by any of the artists.
Though producer Ty Dolla $ign did tell Billboard earlier this month that the song is likely be part of Kanye West’s upcoming release.
The project follows Kanye West’s own collaboration with Paul McCartney at the beginning of the year.
Paul McCartney, 72, has a long history of collaborations with other artists, singing duets with Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and George Michael.
