It Only Took Beyoncé Five Minutes To Record Her Part On Coldplay's New Song
Beyoncé is perfect, we all know this to be fact. But, in case you need more proof, here is yet another example of Queen B's excellence.
Coldplay, while recording their upcoming album, A Head Full of Dreams, realized that no song would ever be good enough without Beyoncé gracing it with her presence.
Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman told the BBC,
It actually started off being quite a different vibe, this song. Chris was wanting to write a sort of party song. The words were 'Drinks on me, drinks on me.' And we said to him, 'You can't say that. You can't get away with that.' Then the whole story of the song changed and then he asked Beyoncé to sing on it, and she very kindly said she would.
Of course she would.
The song, titled "Hymn for the Weekend," now 1,000x better thanks to B, is dreamy, almost etherial and yet somehow you can see yourself dancing to it, which is a difficult task for most Coldplay songs.
And while the song itself represents impressive work by both the band and Beyoncé, it is B's apparent work ethic that is the even bigger story. Berryman continued in his interview with BBC saying,
... it was amazing. She came in. She did her thing. She's unbelievably professional. I think she was in and out in five minutes. And we are so blessed to sing on one of our songs.
