The black-and-white clip, directed by Inez & Vinoodh, finds the trio decked in full-on denim, with Rihanna and Kanye West singing while Paul McCartney strums an acoustic guitar.
All three artists wear denim in the video – in Rihanna’s case, a vintage Sean John jacket that she called “fucking major” and as the “Umbrella” singer said in the making-of clip, the choice of fabric was an artistic decision.
“Kanye came up with the idea of just doing some real street, denim, all-American-type look,” Rihanna said. ‘
“Denim never goes out of style. It’s classic, it’s iconic, just like the fucking Beatles.”
