Ahead of Super Bowl 50, Coldplay and Beyonce recently premiered their reel for “Hymn For The Weekend” to get viewers and fans pumped for their halftime performance.
Within the video, viewers join a visual tour of Mumbai, India, diving into the country’s unique culture and scenery. “Hymn For The Weekend” also marks Coldplay’s first on wax collaboration with Beyonce. Frontman, Chris Martin, spoke with Ryan Seacrest on how the partnership came to be.
“We said, ‘We have this song that sounds really good, is there any chance you can come in and make it sound brilliant? Can you lend us a little bit of your excellence?” he said. “That’s one of my favorites, one of the centerpieces of the [album]. A lot of other songs were written around that.”
Before Bey and Coldplay take center stage in San Francisco, Calif., for Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7, see their chemistry within the 4-minute video.
