Rihanna set the tone for her Talk That Talk release with her genre-crossing singles “We Found Love” and “You Da One.”
She also threw in an unexpected collaboration on Coldplay’s latest album Mylo Xyloto.
The Barbados native recently talked about her desire to collaborate with the band again by performing a duo with frontman Chris Martin at this year’s Brit Awards.
“I think Chris Martin is a special guy,” she told The Sun. “His songwriting is just beautiful and I am a huge fan. If they want me to sing with Coldplay, I will be waiting for the call. I'd love to perform with them.”
The admiration is mutual for Martin, who recalled his jitters when first approaching the songstress.
“"We did a show in Las Vegas and I met her and said, 'Do you think there's any chance?' I was very Hugh Grant-like and spluttering about it."
The Brit Awards will take place this year on February 21st in South-East London’s 02 Arena. --Jolie Sanchez
