Coldplay – Hymn For The Weekend ft. Beyonce

Coldplay’s Queen B duet is an ode to enjoying a significant other you love and cherish. In an interview, Martin described the origins of the collaboration and its sound:

I thought I’d like to have a song called “Drinks on Me” where you sit on the side of a club and buy everyone drinks because you’re so fucking cool. I was chuckling about that, when this melody came – “drinks on me, drinks on me” – then the rest of the song came out. I presented it to the rest of the band and they said, “We love this song, but there’s no way you can sing “drinks on me.” So that changed into “drink from me” and the idea of having an angelic person in your life. Then that turned into asking Beyonce to sing on it.

It’s one of four collaborations on the album; the others are Tove Lo on “Fun”, Gwyneth Paltrow on “Everglow”, and a Barack Obama sample on “Kaleidoscope.”

Apparently, Beyonce also made their album 90% better.

She made our album 90% better. And we were already 20% good. So now we’re like 110% the band we used to be. You do the math.

Before the album’s December 4, 2015, release date, it was previewed on Twitter on November 24, 2015. The official music video was uploaded on the 29th of January.
