Justin Timberlake Inspires Coldplay Album

US hip-hop megastar Justin Timberlake was the inspiration for Coldplay’s new album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends, according to frontman Chris Martin.

The band’s drummer Will Champion is such a fan of Timberlake’s hit track Cry Me A River, he used it as inspiration for one of their’s tracks, Lost! Martin says, “One song we’re always trying to chase is Cry Me A River in terms of the beats and everything.I know that is one of Will’s favourite songs. And he did all the drums on Lost!”

Timberlake recently said if there’s one band that he is desperate to perform with, it would be Coldplay. The Sexy Back singer insists that Coldplay are the ‘modern Beatles’, and that’s why he would give an arm and a leg to duet with them. And, even in the band Timberlake knows just who he wants to jam with – Gwyneth Paltrow’s hubby Chris Martin. “Coldplay are the modern Beatles, so I’d love to do a duet with them — especially Chris Martin,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.
