Coldplay deny plagiarism
Coldplay have responded to allegations that their latest single ‘Every Teardrop is a Waterfall’ is a rip-off of a ‘90s dance track.
The song hit airwaves for the first time yesterday (June 3) and was quickly met with speculation over its resemblance to dance track ‘Ritmo De La Noche’, which has been recorded by Mystic, the Sacados and Chocolate.
Frontman Chris Martin has since confirmed that the band worked with Peter Allen and Adrienne Anderson on the track, whose song ‘I Go to Rio’ is sampled in ‘Ritmo De La Noche’. The pair receive a writing credit on ‘Every Teardrop’.
Martin said on the band’s website: "'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' contains elements of 'I Go To Rio' written by Peter Allen and Adrienne Anderson."
