Earlier in December, last year (2014), Rihanna endorsed the Diamond Ball, which benefited the Clara Lionel Foundation. The Foundation works to improve the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts, and culture. So, we know Rihanna has a noble heart.
The star-studded night attracted stars, congregating them at The Vineyard in Beverley Hills. In an ‘oopsy-daisy’ moment, news of Kanye West’s, who was also one of the guests, tour was leaked for the year 2015. West is planned to embark on an American Tour, for which the dates and fine print is yet to be confirmed.
Because that wasn’t exciting enough, rumour has it, Rihanna will be joining him on this tour across the States. This rumour came in the wake of the release of Rihanna’s music video for ‘FourFiveSeconds.’ In the video, RiRi sings in baggy denim and major cleavage alongside, the rapper. The video has a very ‘raw’ feeling to it, with minimal clothing delivers a strong concept of being ‘stripped down’ and portraying the stars to be vulnerable. The video also features Paul McCartney. The minimalistic, yet impactful video features the three stars in a mono-tonal, black and white frame. The song is all about rising above hate.
This isn’t the first collaboration we have seen with RiRi and West. The duo has previously worked together on tracks like All of the Lights, Run this Town. Kanye West also rapped on Rihanna’s Diamonds remix.
The rumour was sparked as Complex posted a picture on Instagram, of a very suggestive tour logo. The image shows the stars’ names criss crossed with the year 2015, strongly pointing towards the possibility of the duo touring together. The logo on paper, seems to be on a messy pile of more paper-work. Can we hope these may be the tour dates and further details?
Rihanna and Kanye both have new albums waiting for release, the tour would time perfectly with these releases. There aren’t any dates decided for Kanye’s tour, and Rihanna’s company remains undecided.
FourFiveSeconds hit VEVO yesterday and judging by the over 3 million views it’s already gathered, we’d say a tour is definitely imminent.
