Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has revealed that Rihanna will be featured on the song ‘Princess Of China’ off the band’s upcoming album Mylo Xyloto. Talking to The Sun, Chris admitted he was slightly nervous when approaching the singer.
“The album is designed as a whole piece. It has boy and girl lead characters and top of our list for the girl part was Rihanna… but it took a while to pluck up the courage to ask her.
We did a show in Las Vegas and I met her and said, ‘Do you think there’s any chance?’ I was very Hugh Grant-like and spluttering about it.
She has such an amazing voice and it’s so different to mine. When the vocal happened I thought ‘Wow, you sound different’ but I think that’s also because she was singing a different song to what we are used to hearing from her and it is written by a bloke from Devon.”
