Listen to a Snippet of Coldplay and Beyoncé's 'Hymn for the Weekend'
President Obama, Blue Ivy, and Beyoncé are among the featured guests on Coldplay’s new album A Head Full of Dreams. Queen Bey appears on a track called “Hymn for the Weekend,” a song that was inspired by the club.
“The original kernel was that I was listening to Flo Rida or something, and I thought, it’s such a shame that Coldplay could never have one of those late-night club songs, like ‘Turn Down for What.’ What would we call it if we had one?” Chris Martin told The Wall Street Journal.
Bey’s 3-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, also lends her vocals as part of a choir consisting of family and friends, and Barack Obama’s rendition of “Amazing Grace” is sampled on “Kaleidoscope.”
Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams is due Dec. 4. Listen to a snippet of “Hymn for the Weekend” below.
