Coldplay enlist Rihanna for a new track called “Princess of China,” off their new album Mylo Xyloto, due October 24.
“We had this song called ‘Princess of China’ about two years ago that I always was secretly wanting to offer to Rihanna to sing,” Martin told Rolling Stone. “The sweep of the album came together and this song really fit as a sort of damaged loved song, and so after about six months of not feeling brave enough, we finally made contact with her and asked if she’d sing on it.”
“I could have been a princess, you’d be a king/ Could have had a castle and worn a ring, but no, you let me go,” RiRi sings on the track.
