Coldplay on Rihanna duet: "She was always our first choice"
Speaking to In:Demand, drummer Will Champion said that the band's mainman Chris Martin wrote the Mylo Xyloto track "quite a long time ago", but that he always wanted Rihanna to sing on it. He said:
"Chris had written that song quite a long time ago and he had always had it in his head that Rihanna was going to be singing the female part of the song."
He concluded that they "all love" Rihanna and that she is an "incredible artist". He said: "We all love Rihanna and we came to the decision that if we are going to get someone to come and sing on it, it should be the best person and she's obviously an incredible artist. She was the original intention for the female part, so it just had to be her really!"
