Coldplay featuring Rihanna – Princess of China
I’ll admit that I enjoyed Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto for the most part. However, I actually thought that one song really felt out of place on their album. Guess which one it is?
Yep, Princess of China, which features Rihanna of all people (sorry, but I’m not a fan of hers).
I’m pretty sure that everyone expected a music video out of the song given Rihanna’s involvement in it. And I’m aware that it took quite some time for the video to finally happen. It isn’t terrible by any means because the video actually looks pretty good from a visual standpoint. However, Princess of China feels like it’s out of place on Mylo Xyloto when compared to every single track on the album.
I have no idea why Coldplay and Rihanna decided to work together, but you can tell by the song that Coldplay had to mold themselves to Rihanna’s voice through the electropop element. In my opinion, it doesn’t work that well for either party involved.
The music video was directed by Adria Petty & Alan Bibby. Ninjas, battles, desserts and dancers are involved. Enjoy the video and song if you like Coldplay and/or Rihanna.
