Beyonce’s team reject Chris Martin from Coldplay song


Despite the friendship that Coldplay front man Chris Martin has with Jay Z, it was revealed that the Single Ladies singer rejected a song that he had written for her.

Martin explained to readers of Maxim magazine that Beyonce’s A & R team had rejected the chance to work with the coldplay singer after he had written a song especially for her which left him with no choice but to look elsewhere. Martin refused to let rejection get the better of him and opted to ask Bajan popstar Rihanna to feature on Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto LP instead.

The Fix You singer was a little peeved at the fact that there is still a barrier between genres in today’s music scene.

“There’s still this tribalism in music where we’re rock and you’re pop and you’re hip hop, and it sometimes takes a while to get across those barriers. A 14 year old doesn’t even see those barriers. So once we started thinking like that, it was, ‘Who cares if we used to be sheleved in different places in Tower Records?.”
