Coldplay featuring Beyonce

A few years ago, Complex.com had a story about Beyonce turning down a collabo with British band Coldplay. Coldplay ended up contacting a more grateful Rihanna instead.

“Well, I did write a song for Beyonce, but it got rejected by her A&R people. And the one I wrote for Rihanna didn’t get rejected,” coldplay frontman Chris Martin told Maxim.

What a difference a few years makes.

Now that Beyonce’s star isn’t shining as brightly she didn’t hesitate to jump on Coldplay’s hot new track. Martin didn’t even have to beg Beyonce’s people.

In a call-in radio segment with BBC radio’s Annie Mack, Guy of Coldplay explained the story behind the track.

Guy said Beyonce dipped in and out of the studio so fast, that he missed her by 5 minutes.

“We had a song idea, and it actually started out with quite a different vibe,” Guy said. “Chris wanted to write sort of a party song. And the words were [It went] “Drinks on me, Drinks on me,” and we said to him you can’t say that, you can’t get away with that. Then, the whole kind of story of the song changed, and then he asked Beyonce to sing on it, and she very kindly said she would… and, it was amazing. She came in, she did her thing. She was unbelievably professional. I think she was in an out in 5 minutes. And, yeah, we’re just so blessed to have her sing on one of our songs.”

    Lol!

  • starbright9449

    Oh please. Beyonce’s last album outsold her other ones and she didn’t even promote it. She sold hundreds of thousands if not went platinum in a week. She hasn’t dropped new music in two years but her name always on someone’s lips. Hence this article. Yeah, she’s not ‘hot’ anymore lol.

  • ayesha curry was right

    Girl bye you know that publicity stunt of releasing it quietly saved her life. And even then her numbers are a joke compared to some other acts so stop acting legally blind.

    @Jenie. Who JT-money???

  • Too Many Colors

    Say this.?

  • Fendi

    I will say that Adele isn’t scared to turn down money as to not oversaturate the market with her presence, unlike the dusty blonde wig wearer. Adele turned down $27 million (can’t remember who offered it to her) in the interest of keeping her fanbase interested and not inundating them with all things Adele. Her “loss” will most assuredly be her gain, because she went triple platinum in a week. Beyonce has never, and she never will.

  • Fendi

    I’m going with Justin Timberlake for the win.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    And Adele is relatable too. Her voice all by itself sells the albums…. Not collaborations, remixes or a bunch of theatrics. I wouldn’t mind her doing a remix though….

    you know that album was nothing more than a flash in the pan. it fell off the carts as quickly as it was slapped on. then it was time for the usual song and dance. PR fuckery about how the album was fire mean while it failed to get a number 1 song on any chart.

  • eljjai

    When Adele came out and started naming albums after years in her life, everybody started having albums named after years and numbers. Taylor, Miley, Rihanna and Bey.
    Unfortunately Bey lied about her age so couldnt name it a year, and she can’t count very far so she called it 4.

    The fact that he is long time buddies with Jay Z might have something to do with her singing on his album. Duh…

  • iWasteTime

    Good Morning Roses!

  • jussaying

    I agree.. I think I said something like this awhile back – how a lot of Beyonce’s impact and the ‘lofty heights of fame’ she has achieved are one small part of her talent, and 95% of how she was relentlessly marketed. She doesn’t take long enough hiatuses to give people breathing room. Even during her hiatuses, she releases remixes to older albums and whole video anthologies for her albums and/or tour videos.

  • SameoleJ

    This was MJ and Prince’s trademark moves. Go away for years, come back, drop something hot and disappear.

  • jussaying

    I think that’s true for most ARTISTS. Capitalized because when you actually write something meaningful, you need time to gain life experience outside of the limelight so you can properly channel it into art. Beyonce’ is a machine, not really an artist imo. She’s great at what she does, but she’s a shallow artist.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile ! Say that ! I rather do something individually for Sandra Chile! Folks fools be on here trying to steal personal info smh

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Hey there ?

  • SameoleJ

    Yes, key word is ARTIST. But you better careful, saying she isn’t an ARTIST…….I think I hear the faint sound of bees buzzing. “Beyonce is an ARTIST, she is the Davinci of music!!” CTHU

  • jussaying

    It’s not really her voice that sells the albums. It’s the fact that she’s white singing soulful songs, and she’s fat. The majority of our demographic in the US is lol fat YT females. So she getting her Elvis on while making these uggo chubs feel good about themselves because it’s not another skinny broad they need to cut down to feel better. You think Adele would be as big if she were black and had the same exact image? I think not.

  • jussaying

    lmao… this other broad already tried to read me Beyonce’s stats (incorrectly might I add), when I noted that Alicia Keys pre-Swizz Beatz used to outsell Beyonce’s ass all the time without much effort.. The fan went rabid after that.

Why she aint on meds? She keep saying fawk her kids. I think she has 4 or 5 sons. What they do? One of em is 8, and another is 11! Why we saying fawk off to the babies? Said fawk her baby daddies. I mean I got one I dont like. My ex-husband. The other one so sweet though, and so stinking NICE, he makes up for the asshole one. Aint none of em nice Sinead?

    Amen! I saw they were saying what’s Adele secret to her success…. She gives people a chance to miss her…. It’s common sense… When you haven’t seen a person in years that ya like…. And then you finally get em back… You love on em…. Case and point when MJ died…. When we lost that artist folks mourned for him iN return…cherish that man’s music… Till this day….the good thing about Adele we can look forward to what she has to contribute to the industry in the future…. When she left… Folks missed her sound… When she can back couldn’t wait to cop the album

  • Yoni

    Didn’t she attempt an overdose the other day? Morning Luv.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I think she is a artist in her own right… My thing is with her … She acts like she did all on her own…. Never does she portray like you didn’t bite your entire steez on artist that have paved the way…. The only time she does praise legends is when folks have called her on her mess… Then she flips it like oh I wanna give thanks to blah blah blah…. Fake as fawk…. Everything with her is about what will keep her noticed…. I was listening to Destinys child Christmas album … Good album by the way… But even on there she takes over on songs… It’s hard for that chick to share the spotlight…. Over sings on shyt…. It’s like they made sure to have her voice louder than the others… Gotta be the show ya know…. When really it’s others that contribute to her music and it makes her sound to be honest…. Think about her concerts…. She has a million people on stage with her and it’s a good show …. But let Bey sit up there on stage alone …. There is no wow factor there to me…. Shid MJ could rock the stage alone…. Band in the back blacked out… One and only one on stage no dancers nothing…. And just his presence make a your knees buckle… Same with Adele… Her azz sits on a stool… And sangs … No gimmicks just her and her Band …

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Now I have to check out her eyebrows because I’ve never paid attention to them.

  • SameoleJ

    I wouldn’t call her an artist because she really has not done anything original. Even on the things that people say are groundbreaking, we find that she had “inspiration”. And like you mentioned, a true artist (MJ, Prince, Tina Turner, Ray Charles, Adele, etc) can stand alone. They don’t rely on a team of dancers, etc. to captivate their audience. Bey is a performer at best.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Hot mess

  • Mel

    I love cold play but this song just ain’t it I realize Beyoncé sounds good only when she collaborate with Jay that’s it

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I know she’s bipolar and struggles with it by her own admission. None of her relationships worked out and her kids got taken away by family because she couldn’t maintain her chill. So yeah, I think she’s been unhappy for most of her adult life unfortunately.

  • OSHH

    Sade as well.

  • Luv Pitties

    The hive is buzzing to come and sting you lol. They are going to have her wig in the Smithsonian for public worship after she pulls a Britney and cuts her hair off. It will be a last ditch effort for relevancy once completely outshined; then not even a DC reunion will revive careers.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I think there is a art about performing so I will give her that as a artist… But to me overrated…. When really the people that back her should be the stars …. Her dancers… Band and back up singers … To me they are the ones I notice more….

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • SameoleJ

    Okay, let’s call her a performance artist. LOL

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • SecretVoice

    Chile Bye….If you think they both yodel,then it’s clear you know nothing about music…

  • jussaying

    I’m not sure how this is relevant to the argument I was making? I agree – soul comes in all races, but that’s not the argument I was making. It was in regards to why Adele sells so much, or why any white artist specifically outsells their black counterparts singing and/or doing similar music. You could make the same argument for Iggy Azaela when she got one hit song and was heralded the Queen of Hip Hop by Complex mag. Or how Macklemore won a Grammy when he was up against Kendrick Lamar’s debut. Hell, Estelle was soulful and so was Marsha Ambros(idk how to spell her name lol). She’s a perfect parallel: big voice, soulful songs, and chubby. Probably has even more range than Adele but nope, where are her accolades and record sales? Also, just because an artist is from the UK doesn’t make them soulful. Rita Ora sings pop. The Wanted sing pop. One Direction sing pop. lol Samantha Mumba (throwback) sung pop. There’s plenty of artists who sing soul right here in the US. A plethora actually if you know where to look for them. Take a peak at Scott Bradlee’s YouTube channel – there are so many soulful singers he collabs with. Independent tho.

    Adele is a cool chic…. She is just chill. Her voice is distinct and she reminds me of another one my favorite singers Tina Marie RIP.

  • Trucie bedford

    lol that won’t happen. She’ll continue to sell no doubt but she will never do what Adele did with 21 and now 25! And this is after Beyoncé being in the game for over 15 years.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Adele sells records because she is a good artist…. Hell my parents love Adele and they are both in their late sixties…. It has nothing to do with her being white is what I’m saying… Folks want to make it as such but nah…. I didn’t buy her album because she is white I bought it because I like her music…. Oh and I love independent singers… Chile you chatting with a music buff nah… I try not to get into the web of the white girl selling more than another soulful artists…. It’s pointless but I will give credit when credit is due ya know…

  • Trucie bedford

    Me likes. However i feel any female vocalist couldve done the same but Bey brings a different kind of appeal i guess idk. Love anything Coldplay does. Chris is a genius and just all kinds of adorable.

  • starbright9449

    She was worth hundreds of millions before releasing it yet it saved her life? Lmao. Okay then. Her album is the fastest selling in the history of itunes. Name two other people who sold so much in that amount of time on itunes. I’ll wait. For all I know you were one of them who rushed and bought it lol and no, I didn’t buy it.

  • Meme81

    LOL, clearly I don’t.

  • jussaying

    I understand that. Again, I’m not discrediting her talent. But I do think that white artists get more acclaim and accolades and generate more sales due to them being white as well especially where black music is concerned. Eminem is great. Eminem is an amazing emcee. But it took him one LP to get that fame when it took JayZ almost three. You’re entitled to your opinion, but it’s not going to change mine that part of the reason that Adele is so big now is due to her white privilege. Her white makes her relatable to the mass majority of individuals who buy her music: white folks.

  • Monday

    David Bowie, Sade, U2…

    Shall I continue?? These are timeless artist that are not even in the media and when they drop just anything, the music spoke for it.

    Beyonce is okay but besides the US, people don’t really look for her unless she appears in the media.

  • YES I SAID IT…

    If Jazmine Sullivan made the same songs as Adele she would not sell 3 mill FACT ONLY

  • Kinggg

    Where do y’all get this crap that Beyoncé is not a artist this is when being a hater and just not being a fan comes into play. Beyoncé has written her own songs and DC songs BY HERSELF. Came up with the harmonies and still does til this day Michael Jackson didn’t write EVERY song but was there for the production of all his songs and said what he didn’t like vs. what he did, same with Whitney. But Beyoncé gets dis credited as a artist by doing the same thing ? Vs artist that don’t even write a word (e.g Jennifer Lopez and Britney) and sing songs exactly how they get the demo?. It’s crazy how the people who actually work with her will say she’s not a puppet in the studio vs the people who don’t. Lmaoo

  • Kinggg

    Lol saying nothing

  • AListDiva29

    Beyoncé and Jay have been friends with Chris Martin for years, so maybe they are just doing them a favor as a friend. Her popularity isn’t going to fade anytime soon, even if her songs aren’t as great as they were 10 years ago unless she “gets pregnant” again, so ppl need to just get over it!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • Zaki Mba

    Nothing is as pathetic as a black woman trying to discredit and pit beyonce against a white female singer on sales and talent, majority of the music buying consumer aren’t black people, nor do they enjoy or follow urban music, black artists in generally even if they can produce a masterpiece aren’t likely to rich Adele’s stratosphere or garner that much recognition or adoration.

  • Zaki Mba

    Beyonce is a black woman for you to expect Her to be as successful as Adele, under the current world system – you are plain ignorant, however Her achievements have been phenomenal and mind-blowing, and forever will inspire the black female child and boy.

  • jussaying

    Lol true. *THE WORLD.. unfortunately. Sigh.

  • jussaying

    Geez, did you read? You took one slight and got all offended. No one is mentioning her writing credits. (Whether or not those credits are real considering it is well known she takes credit for other people’s works. NeYo and Rich Harrison will let you know that for certain.) It is the content of those songs. I said she isn’t a REAL artist, emphasis on the word REAL. Because real art comes from the heart, it is emotional, it inspires a reaction and the majority of her music is not music I, SPECIFICALLY, can feel. It is insipid, vapid, contrite music that doesn’t have depth. I didn’t say I did not like some of it – it’s fun! But if I am going through something or want to think, Beyonce’ is not the artist I turn to. MJ’s music touched a bunch of issues and themes: love, socioeconomic issues (Heal the World), self-introspection (Man In the Mirror), racial tension (They Don’t Really Care About Us), and he had clever metaphors that chronicled what he was going through as well (Leave Me Alone), with even more innovative thoughtful videos.

    A lot of Beyonce’s songs glorify materialism and superficiality as she consistently name drops high end designers (for reasons I’m still unclear of), booty shaking/dance songs (which have their place!), and lastly she has made some love songs, although I’d argue that they tend to be clichés. Her sister is a much better songwriter IMO. But of course, this is MY opinion which is different from yours and does not make me a hater. I didn’t say she was not talented – she’s just not what I think of for real artistry. However, if YOU feel it in your soul when Check On Me or Get Me Bodied comes on and it speaks to your existence, more power to you. In the mean time, calm your tits.

    Really? I don’t get Teena vibes from Adele at all. In sound or image.

    I have Orkin on speed dial. The “hive” ain’t about that life.

  • Fendi

    You’re entitled. It is amazing how people will congregate daily and look forward to the holidays so they can hope to receive a gift, but never consider giving one.

    I suppose it’s the thought that counts…

  • Yes, I’m That Leah

    Adele just broke everyone’s Itunes sales record.

    Adele and Tina are unique in their sound however they are genuine and true to who they are/were . I like Adele whether she stays thick or not she can sing. I do like the fact that she isn’t a size two as well. Hope she has another album or three inside her and she stays level headed.

  • Luv Pitties

    Lol, don’t spend any money on Orkin just keep you some Bengal that’ll do the trick ?

  • barbeez

    one word……ADELE.
    Beyoncé who?????????

  • barbeez

    Not white or black…talent without using sex. Adele attracts young and old of all genders and races because she focuses on her TALENT. Whitney Houston did the same thing during her early days. Beyoncé’s dirty lyrics and trashy clothes have limited her career.

  • barbeez

    Adele has quality music and real talent

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Solange, Cousin Angie, Mama Tina,Kelly Rowland, Wasp whom ever you are Beyonce doesn’t write anything. She adds quotations, an ahhhh or oohhhh to a pre written song then gets song writing credits. She’s a liar , a phoney with a great machine behind her that’s all. She’s corny and doesn’t have all of her original parts either.

  • Kinggg

    Bye hater see you on the next bey post :)

    Stan

    Based on the central character in the Eminem song of the same name, a “stan” is an overzealous maniacal fan for any celebrity or athlete

    In addition to being ignorant you are petty and hateful – good luck in life.

  • starbright9449

    When Adele album drops we’ll see if it becomes the fastest selling in iTunes history. I’ll wait……

  • starbright9449

    History as in was it the fastest selling in iTunes history? How many did she sell in four days? Still hasn’t beaten Beyonce’s record? No? Okay.

  • starbright9449

    Numbers? Adele hasn’t sold a certain amount in a certain amount of time. Beyonce’s record is still standing. Anything else?

  • starbright9449

    Lmao. It didn’t get a number one on any chart?? Now I know you’re high and looney. Good day.

  • starbright9449

    Beyonce’s record of the fastest selling album in history is still standing. Adele has yet to top it. If she’s so amazing how come no one bought up her music as fast as they did Beyonce’s. Beyonce’s fans crashed iTunes.

  • ayesha curry was right

    Lol ” anything else”? I bet you pat your weave at that statement girl bye you commented to me,anything else???

  • SecretVoice

    Bish bye….Beyonce herself once stated that she “wished she was Latino during the Shakira era”,so excuse me, if I don’t go all out for someone like her that hate self….I don’t owe that dumb bish a thing.

    You Beytards always try to act as if she’s the top this or that.She says she is “pop” and I compared her her to a Pop artist. You think I’m supposed to support her just because she’s “black”. She and Adele are both POP singers and in Adele’s case,she can actually sing.I compared her to a pop singer whom is way beyond her on every level of sales.I’m not going to go back and forth with you on the facts,nope not me.

    You Beytards can’t use a “blackness that she doesn’t even claim” when it’s convenient.You know that Adele blows her out the water,so you resort to trying to “guilt people into supporting your raggedy dumb queen” just because she’s “black”….

  • SecretVoice

    LOL…

    Lady I aint your therapist, whose got time to read all this hate infested dribble you wrote. I know I don’t
