Jay-Z: Chris Martin’s a top bloke

Rapper Jay-Z is on the prowl for collaborations for his next album – and Coldplay’s Chris Martin is top of the wishlist.

The 99 Problems hitmaker worked with Martin on his 2006 track Beach Chair and Coldplay's song Lost+. The hip hop star insisted he'd ‘jump at the chance’ to work with piano man Chris again after appearing on the same bill in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve. He told the BBC: 'He's a brother from another mother. I see him more than my own brother. Actually, I do.

‘He's one of the geniuses of our generation. Any time you can collaborate with that sort of genius, you jump at the chance, I don't care who you are.’
