Kanye West Confirms His Executive Producer Credit on Rihanna’s New Album at 2015 Grammy Awards
Yeezy Season is here. Fresh from the pre-Grammy festivities, including hitting the stage with protege Big Sean at the House of Blues and attending Jay Z's Roc Nation brunch on Saturday (Feb. 7), Kanye West is ready for his return to the stage at the ceremony.
Nominated for two awards -- Best Rap/Sung Collaboration and Best Rap Song for ‘Bound 2’ with Charlie Wilson --Yeezus hit the Grammy Awards red carpet on Sunday (Feb. 8) with his wife Kim Kardashian. The fashionable couple didn't disappoint. Kanye donned a full black look from head-to-toe and Kim wore a plunging, leg-baring Jean Paul Gautier sparkly number in a gold hue. While fashion is their thing, Ye was all about this music.
The rapper talked out his innovative spirit. “I just get bored with things really easily and try to look for new things that excites me,” he states. He also confirmed that his album is complete and he is currently executive producing Rihanna’s highly anticipated eighth album, ‘R8.’
So how did his collaboration with Rih and Sir Paul McCartney come about? "I played her [Rihanna] my album and I told her I was working with Paul McCartney and she couldn't get past the song [‘FourFiveSeconds’]," Yeezy said.
Although Yeezus was unable to confirm the release date for Rihanna’s or his own album, Ye, Rih and McCartney will perform her new single, ‘FourFiveSeconds,’ live at the 57th Grammy Awards. In addition to that performance, Ye is rumored to perform his own set and possibly premiere new music.
