This version of the Adria Petty & Alan Bibby-directed video will play behind Coldplay on stage during their upcoming tour as they perform "Princess of China." The official video for the song will be released in the coming weeks.
About the record, Coldplay’s front man/Gwyneth Paltrow‘s husband/Jay-Z‘s bestie, Chris Martin, told MTV News:
“Rihanna‘s bit on our record is my favorite bit. When the song came out, it sort of asked for her to be on it. And I think at this point, we have nothing to lose, and so we’ve been trying some new things and trying to break down the perceived boundaries between different types of music.”
Rihanna performed this song with the band at the 2012 GRAMMY Awards.
