Coldplay "were politely shown the door" when they first approached Beyoncé
Frontman Chris Martin has revealed that when his band, Coldplay, first approached Beyoncé with the suggestion of a collaboration they were "politely shown the door".
He told chat show host Graham Norton that although she provided guest vocals on "Hymn For The Weekend", she initially didn't want to work with the group and just declined their offer:
"We've been to her before and were politely shown the door. I had a tiny idea for a little song and when I asked her if she wanted to do it she said no. We then went to her with a more real song with ‘Hymn for the Weekend’ and she was very sweet and sang it."
