Coldplay and Rihanna’s Mylo Xyloto collaboration, “Princess Of China”, now has its own big-budget
music video kung-fu film. RiRi plays the titular princess, decked out in futuristic oriental garb, while Coldplay’s Chris Martin is the lone warrior trekking through the desert. Once he’s made it to her shiro, Martin engages in samurai swordplay with the grace of crane and the speed of a lion, climaxing in a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon-inspired battle against Princess Rihanna. Rather than end this otherwise epic piece with the reddening of steel, though, these pop star ninjas share an embrace against the setting sun, thus leaving our bloodlust once again unsatiated.

Mylo Xyloto is out now via EMI.
