Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ Gets a Remix From Coldplay
Coldplay must really be “music crushing” on Rihanna. Just last week the Brit supergroup released a track from the band’s fifth studio album, ‘Mylo Xyloto,’ entitled ‘The Princess of China,’ featuring Princess Ri. Of their collaboration, band front man Chris Martin tells The Sun: “The album is designed as a whole piece. It has boy and girl lead characters and top of our list for the girl part was Rihanna … but it took a while to pluck up the courage to ask her.”
The duet, which is currently it’s No. 4 on iTunes, proved so successful for both Coldplay and Ri, that it seems Chris Martin and the gang is trying to keep that Rihanna mojo going. During a taping of BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge series, the band broke out a cover of RiRi’s current smash, ‘We Found Love!‘
In true Coldplay form, the track has been changed from a clubby, super-produced dance track into stripped-down, piano heavy ballad. Take a listen to the Chris Martin-transformed ‘We Found Love’ and let us know what you think.
Better, worse or just different from Ri’s version?
