Rihanna and Coldplay to perform at The Brit Awards 2012
Coldplay's latest album Mylo Xyloto features the song which has Rihanna's vocals - Chris Martin
had to "pluck up the courage" to ask Rihanna
to work with him on the song.
He said: "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.
"It took a while to pluck up the courage to ask her. She has such an amazing voice and it's so different to mine."
Next year's BRIT awards look set to be a stonker with other confirmed acts including Kasabian, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and the almighty Adele.
Bring it on.
