Could a new romance be brewing or just another duet? Either way, we’re stoked to see Rihanna out to dinner with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. They’re both single now and they’ve worked together before — so what do you think is going on?
Chris Martin and Rihanna spent the night out on the town in Santa Monica, Cali. on June 8! They were spotted eating dinner at Giorgio Baldi, which we know is one of RiRi’s favorite restaurants. We’ve got to wonder if they’re working together again since they paired up for “Princess of China” in April 2012 for Coldplay‘s album Mylo Xyloto.
Chris Martin & Rihanna’s Date Night
Rihanna looked stunning for their night out wearing all black and of course rocking a bright red lip — definitely date-night apparel. However, there’s a good chance they’re just planning another collab!
We wouldn’t be surprised if the two decided to work together again — Chris, 37, was all about dueting with the 26-year-old singer in 2012. He actually wrote the song with intention of having her on it!
“In like a dream scenario, we had a song that I’d secretly kind of written to see if Rihanna would want to sing it,” he told MTV at the time. “And then the rest of the band wanted to keep it, so we came up with the idea of asking her to sing it with us, and, to our great surprise, she said okay.”
Chris Martin Was Nervous To Approach Rihanna
He event went on to say that her part is his “favorite bit” on the record, so he’s happy he asked her to be on it.
“She has such an amazing voice and it’s so different to mine,” he said, even adding that he was nervous to ask her — which is actually totally cute to imagine someone as renowned as Chris Martin actually being nervous!
“It took a while to pluck up the courage to ask her,” he said. “We did a show in Las Vegas and I met her and said, ‘Do you think there’s any chance?’ I was very Hugh Grant-like and spluttering about it.”
In the video for their song together, they look like they have great chemistry — watch it below to be reminded, then let us know — do you think they should work together again or date?!
