Donning matching all-black, here’s Rihanna, Sir Paul, and Kanye performing their new single with a similar vibe and backdrop to the video. I liked this look, and silhouette, live more than in the music video. The hook is addicting and by the end, the Staples Center crowd and the artists in the front row were clapping along (always cool). Fellas, this may be a guilty pleasure song but hey, Kanye’s involved and he added his usual flair to the performance too.
I guess one knock: was McCartney’s mic on or was he just lip-synching along? Same with his guitar? I thought he was purposefully lip synching… just repeating the words really since he doesn’t sing on the actual song. What did you think?
