“My friends @ColdPlay and I will be sharing the stage for a performance at this years Annual Grammy Awards!”, tweeted Rihanna, who received four nominations this year.
Coldplay singer, Chris Martin explained why an outside voice was brought into the new Coldplay album, Mylo Xyloto. “Her 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,” said Martin. “Our new record is sort of a story; it’s not quite a musical, but it’s dangerously close. There’s a bit of a love-story thread, so we really needed someone to sing even higher than me,”coldplay, Grammy, Grammy Awards, Princess of China, Rihanna
