Beyoncé and Coldplay made a music baby, and trust us, you've never heard Queen Bey like this.
The product of the highly anticipated collaboration—a single called "Hymn for the Weekend"—debuted on Annie Mac's BBC radio show Monday, followed by a call from Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman. Berryman recounted how the collaboration was born out of frontman Chris Martin's attempt at a "party song," which was quickly shut down by his rocker band mates.
"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,'" Berryman told Mac. "Then the whole story of the song changed and then he asked Beyoncé to sing on it, and she very kindly said she would. And 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 have her sing on one of our songs."
