When whirls of the Beyoncé-Coldplay collaboration first hit the web, it seemed that much of social media was divided. It had been a while since Beyoncé released a song of her own, and while she made an appearance on Naughty Boy’s “Runnin’ (Lose It All)” and Drake’s “Can I,” everyone was fiending for a Beyoncé track. And although the Internet hasn’t been very kind to Coldplay, they accepted it nonetheless. Still, the collaboration was nowhere near as impactful as “Princess of China,” their mainstream hit with Rihanna. Now they’re looking to change that with a new, vibrant music video.
Filmed in Mumbai, the video showcases the beauty and appreciation of life in Indian culture, and features an appearance from Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor. While it doesn’t seem like Beyoncé was able to join the band in India, her filmed parts are also pretty stunning. Hopefully we’ll see some sort of recreation of it all at the Super Bowl halftime show. Until then, just continuously press play.
