Singer Rihanna posted a video for her song “All of the Lights'” for her Loud tour with Kanye West on her Facebook page this week. While the song is from West’s album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and includes many other artists on the track, Rihanna and West have worked more on the track than the other featured artists.
Both artists are having great success with their albums and collaborations with West deciding to credit Rihanna on the radio single of the track and including her in the track’s music video.
This isn’t the first time Rihanna has used another artists’ track she was featured on as inspiration for her own music. She was featured on Eminem’s track “Love the Way You Lie” off of his album, Recovery, and in turn created a second part to the song on her album and she has also joined him in the music video and on stage to sing the number.
It is kind of refreshing to see so many artists working together to create unique music ideas and masterpieces rather than viewing each other as rivals and competition to “beat.” With so many talented people in the business, it’s more ideal for fans at least, for collaborations to occur.
With West releasing an LP with hip-hop genius Jay-Z, titled Watch the Throne, it looks like artist collaborations won’t be stopping any time soon, to the delight of fans.
