Afrojack Remixes Rihanna’s “FourFiveSeconds”February 23, 2015
Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney’s song “FourFiveSeconds” gets the remix treatment from Afrojack.
Rihanna needed to breathe some new life into her lead single off her upcoming studio album, so she enlisted DJ Afrojack to add his special touch to the song and created this new remix that took the song from alright to OK.
It’s no secret the song didn’t make the commercial impact we’re sure Rihanna hoped for, so throwing in a different beat to the song in the hopes to see it rise on the charts feels a little forced. I applaud Rihanna for releasing a song that’s outside her comfort zone, but for some reason the general public isn’t embracing her risk.
Unfortunately, this remix does nothing for it, except make the song intolerable to listen to outside a nightclub.
