Chris Martin: Beyoncé Said My Song Was “Awful”
If you come to Beyonce peddling garbage, the Queen will let you know just where to take that garbage … and hopefully recycle it in order to make the world a better place. That’s what Coldplay frontman Chris Martin experienced after he brought a song to Beyoncé hoping to score a collaboration.
Chris, whose band Coldplay did eventually collaborate with Bey on their single “Hymn for the Weekend”, says that he once presented a track to Beyoncé called “Hook Up” and played it in the studio for her and producer Stargate. Neither Bey or Star were here for it Martin says in an interview with Rolling Stone. “In the sweetest possible way, she told me, ‘I really like you – but this is awful.'”
