Coldplay – “Hymn For The Weekend” (Feat. Beyoncé) Video

The best moment on A Head Full Of Dreams, Coldplay’s soupy mess of a new album, is the moment when Beyoncé shows up on the song “Hymn For The Weekend.” That perfect human being has now graciously donated more of her time so that Coldplay could make a video for the song. The clip, from director Ben Mor, features Coldplay performing at what appears to be an Indian street fair and wandering into the city while fireworks explode above. Beyoncé never appears onscreen with the boys; instead, she plays some sort of Bollywood screen queen, which is some pretty decent casting if you ignore the whole cultural-appropriation angle. It’s a beautifully shot video, and I like the part where Chris Martin hangs his head out the window of a moving car, like a dog. Watch it below.

A Head Full Of Dreams is out now on Parlophone/Atlantic.
