Coldplay & Rihanna debut official Princess of China video

Coldplay & Rihanna have today premiered the official video for their collaboration, 'Princess of China.'

The promo, which is filmed in the style of a classic kung-fu film trailer, was originally scheduled to debut tomorrow, but was released a day earlier after a leaked version surfaced online late last night.

The visually-stunning clip sees Rihanna dressed as a 'gangsta goth geisha' and frontman Chris Martin duelling with ninjas before the pair engage in a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon-inspired battle.

Martin had previously told MTV News that Rihanna’s guest appearance was his highlight of their recent fifth studio album, 'Mylo Xyloto':

"Her bit on our record is my favourite bit. When the song came out, it sort of asked for her to be on it. And I think at this point, we have nothing to lose, and so we've been trying some new things and trying to break down the perceived boundaries between different types of music."
