At the beginning of the month we got to see Rihanna and Chris Martin of Coldplay do some funky samurai/Crouching Tiger-esque (somewhat culturally problematic) stuff in the video for Princess Of China. A lot of you gave the song a “meh,” but they’ve just released an acoustic version that has a slightly different sound. Maybe you likey this one better? Take a listen inside :)
Coldplay feat. Rihanna: Princess Of China
I’m a sucker for acoustic but this could have been a wee bit more acoustic-y, no? Still, I like the track and although the song isn’t what I would call a heavy-hitter, I always thought it had a sweet feel to it, and I like this version too. Apparently, they’ll be releasing acousticPrincess Of China as a part of the song’s digital EP release.
Anybody else diggin it? And more importantly, is anybody else still trying to figure out exactly what a gangsta goth geisha is?
Sidenote: Kelly Clarkson covered the song a little while back. Many have argued that her version is better than the original. What do you guy think?
