Coldplay and Rihanna, who would have predicted the collaboration? An acoustic version of “Princess of China” was just released. Though after listening to both, Rihanna’s part sounds nearly identical. There’s only a slight difference between the original and acoustic, but Chris Martin’s smooth vocals and Rihanna’s sultry addition makes “Princess of China” a perfect hit.

KROQ radio has compiled both versions to listen to. I can’t say the acoustic version is any worse or any better than the original, which may mean the acoustic is a fail by definition. But “Princess of China” has an addicting and hypnotic nature that even half-acoustic (if that’s possible) doesn’t matter to me. This is a song I want to listen to on repeat, acoustic or not.

Listened to both of them? Do you like difference? Sound off below!
