Trending Music Review: FourFiveSeconds by Logan Chapman
Holding steady this week on the Billboard hot 100 chart at number 5 is the song FourFiveSeconds which is a collaboration of vocals from Rihanna, Kanye West, and Sir Paul McCartney. Very rarely in the music industry does a collaboration of three massive artists take place and even rarer is the song actually very good but the stars aligned as this song was created and now America can't get the chorus out of their heads. The vocals of Rihanna and Kanye West are what most people would say really drives this song, but in my opinion the main focus of the song and what sets it apart so much is the amazing guitar skills of Paul McCartney. This guitar creates an amazing background for the song which brings out every detail in this track. The only downside that I must give this song is that it is very repetitive and it has a tendency to get stuck in ones head very easily which can be kind of annoying at times. Aside from this song being overplayed on countless radio stations which greatly impacts how we feel about the song, FourFiveSeconds is a true example of what a good collaboration song should look like.
