Chris Martin surprised Lizzo during an interview in which she described the influence of his band’s breakthrough hit ‘Yellow‘ on her forthcoming song ‘Coldplay’.
Lizzo was speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 about her fourth album ‘Special‘, which features the song in question, when Martin popped up on a FaceTime call.
The singer had been discussing the inspiration for the closing song on ‘Special’, titled ‘Coldplay’, telling Lowe that the song samples ‘Yellow’ and is based on a romantic memory.
“This is one of the most literal songs I’ve ever written,” Lizzo told Lowe. “Everything I say in the song actually happened.”
The track was produced by Ricky Reed who shared a simple piano loop with the pop star and suggested she jump in the booth and talk over the instrumental.
