The pair, who collaborated on Kanye West’s song ‘FourFiveSeconds’ in 2015, bumped into one another in the first class section of the plane, which was heading to London.
A video that Rihanna shared on her Instagram stories reel (since reposted by Metro) shows the former Beatles musician stood in front of her plane seat. “I’m about to put you on blast, Mr McCartney. How are you on this flight?” she asks him off-camera.
McCartney then laughs, saying: “What’s going on here? Who is this filming me?” before RiRi answers: “Who is this peasant filming this legend?”
Rihanna, meanwhile, has been posting small updates about the long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s ‘Anti’. The latest news is that it’s a reggae album that’s influenced by Bob Marley and features the talents of producer Supa Dups, best known for his work with Beenie Man and Sean Paul.
The ‘Work’ singer recently joined a list of stars including Beyoncé, Pusha T and T.I. in signing a petition to prevent the upcoming execution of Rodney Reed.
