Coldplay Premieres ‘Princess of China’ Featuring Rihanna [VIDEO]
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin battles with singer Rihanna, samurai-style, in Coldplay’s latest music video for “Princess of China.” The song is the British band’s fourth single off of their fifth studio album, Mylo Xyloto. Fans have been eagerly awaiting its debut ever since the group released a behind-the-scenes look at the video last month.
The video appears in the style of an old kung-fu film, complete with samurai swords. Rihanna looks stunning in both her fighting gear and traditional Geisha garb.
Martin told Entertainment Weekly back in October that he knew he wanted to collaborate with Rihanna the minute he heard the track. “She’s one of the top five singers in the world,” he said. “While we were working on it, I was thinking, ‘I wish Rihanna was singing this.’” Coldplay is currently on tour in the UK, but will be hitting up the United States beginning in Dallas, Texas on June 22.
