A 'gangsta goth geisha' Riri channels her inner goddess persona in the sneak peek to the upcoming music video.
Coldplay have teased their upcoming music video for latest single "Princess of China". The band fronted by Chris Martin played a snippet of the video while performing at one of their tour stops in Edmonton earlier this week.
The sneak peek saw their featured guest, Rihanna, rocking a "gangsta goth geisha" attire. The Bajan beauty was singing her part while striking a goddess pose with hands appearing from her behind and moving to the beat of the song.
"Princess of China" is lifted from Coldplay's fifth studio album "Mylo Xyloto", which has been released since October 2011. Recalling how they approached Riri, Chris said, "It took a while to pluck up the courage to ask her. We did a show in Las Vegas and I met her and said, 'Do you think there's any chance?' I was very Hugh Grant-like and spluttering about it."
