Just one week after debuting her high-powered collaboration, Rihanna takes viewers on set of her upcoming video “FourFiveSeconds.” In the behind-the-scenes clip released online, RiRi speaks about the simple yet stylish visual with an All-American vibe.

This is the first song that my fans are going to hear from the new album, and the first visual that they see,” says the Bajan pop star. “Kanye came up with the idea of doing just some real street denim all American type look.” Fans will see Paul McCartney and his trusty guitar moving around on set, while Rihanna and Kanye go through wardrobe and various looks, before all three check out various playback takes. “That’s the look, that’s the fashion tip. Denim never goes out of style; it’s classic, it’s iconic — just like the f—ing Beatles,” Rihanna tells viewers of the video’s theme, which is where the song’s artwork originates from.

“FourFiveSeconds” is set to appear on both Rihanna and Kanye West’s new solo albums, due later this year. Go on set below.

French Montana puts all the partying and clubbing to the side, choosing to relax at home in the video “Poison.” The Coke Boys rapper throws on the Versace robe, moving through his pricey mansion filled with scantily clad women and his close friends. The lavish Montana eventually finds the right room (and eye-candy) to settle in.

The song can be found on French Montana and Harry Fraud’s Mac & Cheese: The Appetizer EP out now.

og maco fuckemx3

No. Fucks. Given. With his middle finger to the sky, OG Maco lets off some steam in the boisterous, black-and-white video for “FUCKEMx3,” one of the standouts off his self-titled EP. It’s not the most socially conscious record in the world, but this right here did just fine on more than a few occasions last year. Oh, and in case you’re wondering where Migos are at:

It’s 2015 and Snoop Dogg and DJ Quik are still lending a hand to the West Coast’s younger generation (I sincerely hope this never changes). As TeeFLii looks to prove himself as a “starr” on his upcoming debut album, the Long Beach and Compton OGs assist the silky-voiced singer on this groovy number dubbed “Addicted.” Warning: the title don’t lie.

TeeFLii’s Starr LP, which also features appearances from 2 Chainz (“24 Hours“), Chris Brown, Dom Kennedy, Nipsey Hussle, E-40 and Skeme, hits stores February 3.

Master P really is in full swing with his musical comeback. First, he introduced his Money Mafia crew. Then, jumped on a song with Lil’ Wayne. Now, he pops up on a remix with Young Turk appropriately titled “Wodie.” Imagine if he put the Hot Boys back together and signed them to No Limit (stranger things have happened.)

missy elliott super bowl

Naturally, there was a few moans and groans when Katy Perry was announced as the halftime entertainment for this Sunday’s Super Bowl, but you might want to stick around for the show after all. Katy hinted that an “old school” female artist will be making a surprise appearance during a press conference yesterday, and according to the Associated Press, that special guest is Missy Elliott.

Hopefully Katy was referring to Missy’s solo joints and not their awful “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” collaboration when she told the media, “I think jaws will drop and faces will melt.” As previously announced, Lenny Kravitz will also be performing at the halftime show.
