Coldplay & Rihanna – Princess of China

Coldplay's highly anticipated duet with Rihanna, "Princess of China" has found its way to the digital sphere. The song will be featured band's fifth studio album Mylo Xyloto, which is due next week on October 24. The band's frontman, Chris Martin, shared some words on this blending of musical forces:

"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."

    If they were going to borrow this song, should have at least titled it "Princess of Vietnam."  Ra ngõ tụng kinh (Chant at
