British musician and Kanye West collaborator Mr Hudson returned in September with ‘Can’t Forget You’, his first solo single in two years.

Mr Hudson has now teamed up with rapper Vic Mensa for ‘Coldplay’, a song in which he sings: “Wet hair on a cold day/The kind of day you play Coldplay/I don’t even like Coldplay/But today I need Coldplay”.

Mensa, meanwhile, references Coldplay’s classic hit ‘Yellow’, rapping on the track: “I see your face in yellow every time I hear Coldplay”.

It’s Mr Hudson’s second collaboration with Vic Mensa this year. He appeared on the rapper’s track ‘Almost There’ from his ‘The Manuscript’ EP in June.
