Another Horrifying Collaboration
"When the vocal happened I thought 'Wow, you sound different' but I think that's also because [Rihanna] was singing a different song to what we are used to hearing from her," Martin said.
I suppose "different" would be somewhat of an accurate description. Couldn't this scenario be comparable to mixing feces with chocolate? Why ruin something that's already good?
Rihanna is an artist managed by Jay-Z's company Roc Nation. It is well known that Chris Martin and Jay-Z are good friends; Martin and wife Gwenyth Paltrow even attended Beyonce and Jay-Z's very private wedding in 2008. Hmm... starting to make sense now.
Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto will be released on October 24.
