Beyoncé turned down ‘awful’ Chris Martin song ‘Hook Up’

The pop star collaborated with Coldplay on their track 'Hymn For The Weekend' instead

Beyonce turned down a song from Coldplay‘s Chris Martin called ‘Hook Up’, describing it as “awful”.

The pop star features on the band’s track ‘Hymn For The Weekend’, which appeared on their latest album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’.

Martin is on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine and, as Stereogum reports, discusses working with the singer, amongst other things.

The frontman said he offered Beyoncé the song ‘Hook Up’, but she rejected him by saying: “I really like you, but this is awful.”

Martin also revealed he keeps up with latest dance trends, saying he is “not sure if I can whip, but I can nae nae with the best of them.”

Last night (February 7), Beyoncé joined Coldplay for their Super Bowl halftime performance. The group, who were also joined by Bruno Mars, opened their performance by performing a medley of songs ‘Yellow’, ‘Viva La Vida’, ‘Paradise’ and ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’. Mars ran through his Mark Ronson-aided hit ‘Uptown Funk’, soon segueing into Beyoncé’s new single ‘Formation’.

Coldplay finished the show with a performance of ‘Fix You’ while a backdrop showed footage of Super Bowl halftime shows from the past. They were joined by Beyoncé, Ronson and Mars for a supergroup send-off.

‘Formation’ took fans by surprise when it was released on Saturday (February 6). It is the star’s first single since 2014’s ‘Ring Off’.
