Rihanna Joins Paul McCartney At Desert Trip For “FourFiveSeconds”: Watch
“We finally found someone under the age of 50,” Paul McCartney joked. He was on stage for the second weekend at classic rock mega-fest Desert Trip, which Mick Jagger had already described as “Coachella for old people.” (The line-up also features the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, the Who and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd.)
Meanwhile, that someone was Rihanna, dressed in an oversized pinstripe suit, who had just helped sing new Americana track “FourFiveSeconds.” While Paul gamely sang featured artist Kanye West‘s verse about talking trash, RiRi impressed with her powerful vocals. She may have been one of the youngest people at Desert Trip, but she also handily reminded the crowd of rock’s black female legacy.
