Styled by Songs: ‘FourFiveSeconds’ by Rihanna, Kanye West, & Paul McCartney
I don’t know why this piece of music is so addictive, but ever since I discovered it, it’s been on repeat inside my head. Is it because this song has it all, with Rihanna’s beautiful voice, a rapping Kanye West, and Paul McCartney’s pure talent with the guitar?
The music video is actually really surprising, considering that West and Rihanna are two artists who really take these productions to the extreme. This time, however, it’s quite simple and filled with emotion, actually allowing you to focus on the words and feel of the song.
“Now I’m FourFiveSeconds from wildin’
And we got three more days ’til Friday
I’m just tryna make it back home by Monday, mornin’
I swear I wish somebody would tell me
Ooh that’s all I want”
And the feelings are definitely there, which gives us a lot to work with; inspiration can be drawn from the meaning behind the lyrics, not just the video’s aesthetics with all the artists embracing denim. When you can’t wait for the weekend and need to blow off some steam, these outfits allow you to do just that.
