She had more special guests than she let on!
But RiRi and Yeezy had more star power on the track than they let on!
Rihanna had a very special ’90s girl group singing backup for her!
Three ladies known individually as Wendy Wilson, Chynna Phillips, & Carnie Wilson — better known collectively as Wilson Phillips!
And apparently it was big fan Kanye who handpicked the Hold On singers! Carnie revealed:
“[Kanye] said, ├óΓé¼╦£When I think of authenticity and I think of angelic, I think of you.’ He was really shy and he would just smile and he’s real soft-spoken, then all of a sudden when he started playing all these songs, he was dancing around the room. It was just like how Michael Jackson used to be. When he would press play, it was like, out came the artist and the creativity was just really there. We didn’t know if we were singing on a section of the song├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥originally it was supposed to be just the bridge. He gave us sole freedom to just do what we do. We just went in there and let loose.”
We LOVE Kanye’s interest in such diverse and classic music!
Anytime someone can bring Wilson Phillips back into the spotlight — that’s pretty awesome in our book!
