Jay-Z had the sweetest thing to say about Chris Martin in an interview
That’s a pretty big compliment.
In his latest interview with NME, Jay-Z had words of flattery for none other than Coldplay’s frontman, Chris Martin.
Speaking about his long career of working with other artists, Jay-Z said Chris Martin was one of the best.
“I have been in the industry long enough to know when I’m in the presence of a genius and Chris Martin is just that,” he told the magazine.

“In years to come, Britain will look back at him as a modern day Shakespeare.
"He is an incredible recording artist, an incredible songwriter, but where he really comes alive is performing live.
“If you get the chance to see Coldplay live, do it – you won’t regret it.”
If Chris Martin is a modern day Shakespeare then I can't wait for the generations to come to learn Coldplay lyrics in an English class.

The pair are no strangers to a working relationship having previously joined forces on Jay-Z’s 2006 track Beach Chair and again in 2012 when the pair performed together for a New Year’s Eve show in New York.
