New Video: Rihanna – ‘Princess Of China (Coldplay Tour Edition)’

Published: Wednesday 25th Apr 2012 by David

In aid of their 2012 Tour, Coldplay commissioned Piranha to create a music video starring Rihanna– for the single ‘Princess Of China‘.

Set to serve as backdrop for when the band perform the cut live,the finished product emerged online today, days before her ROC sister Rita Ora joins the group on the show’s European leg.

Get right into it below…


Though Riri has never failed us on a visual tip, the simplicity of the above puts a few of her own clips to shame.

So, with the entire clip set to emerge in coming weeks we can’t wait to see what she and the boys serve up.

Oh- just as long as she keeps the acting to a minimum (yes- we saw ‘Battleships‘).

Your thoughts?

    I loved her Grammy performance with Coldplay! I still think her best song is California King Bed, the lyrics are so meaningful & the video was amazing. I love the less edgy Rihanna.

  2. Respect April 25, 2012

    shakira’s “give it up to me” plagia … Sorry Rihanna, try harder

    I had to start skipping through parts to see if the video picks up after the first minute or so. It was a little dry. Rihanna doesn’t look bad though.

  21. ThéLourson April 25, 2012

    Im dead at people trying to throw shades at her role in Battleships while she might appear for maybe 5 minutes in the whole movie…. Rihanna could find a medicine to cure A*** people would continue to hate her, the thing is she doesnt give a f*** of what you say, so keep on wasting your time losers.

  25. j April 25, 2012

  26. Onyx April 25, 2012

    She looks great and i f*****’ love this song, Coldplay is one of my fav. bands.

  27. wayneM876 April 25, 2012


    When all you do is work like Rihanna does with no one to share the life is terrible. I bet she’s looking at everybody being so happy in a relationship and she is alone. Now her family is worried for her and that’s because she may be another Amy Winehouse. Well this is what L.A. Reid/Jay-Z & Rihanna wanted pitty for fame.

  28. Kareem April 25, 2012

    love it

    seeing as though it isn’t her video, why would she have anything to do with the creative process? she features on the song right? oh’ okay

  33. Tasha24 April 25, 2012

    Reading & watching that video of Rihanna’s family begging for her to come home. Mother knows her child and she can see something is not right with her daughter. It’s to a point now that her brother is very concern also. I mean Rihanna has been drinking and partying at the age of 14. Rihanna’s mother and her grandfather was at the gala Time. I guess they seen something going on with Rihanna there.

    I remember the Navy saying Rihanna having fun and for people to leave her alone. Well her family don’t think so. Working 16 hours like we care because this is what she wanted since 2009.

  34. Lax April 26, 2012

    Rihannaaaaa,,,You get yo ass together, your family, many fans are concerned
    about your welfare. Your haters or on their knees holding their breath and praying
    for yo ass to fall, flop and go back to the Islands. Theres over a dozen little tight pu**y bytches waiting to slide, walk or roll right into your spot. No matter come what’s may, the deal is in your hands, now keep your shyt together or throw your hand in. Now i know that you have been dogged, lied on, called all of the nasety names in the fu**%*% book and you or at this time still standing tall.

    Just remember that it’s the squeating wheels that get the oil.Remember that there a higher power who has us all and he will always make a way out of not way, for you to make it through even when the pathway is blocked by the a/h who wishes and prays for your down fall. Get it together girl, and i mean like right now. You see and read them calling you a coke head, that is not good and we know that you or not a coke head, these bum bytches wished that you was. And the way many see it, is if Jay-z can make a come back and he sold drugs then each and every other person in the industry who wants to succeed should be given the same right. And if they insist on not giving you the right, then the only thing left to
    do is claim those things as if they was yours, right? Let them talk until their asses fall off from their bodies, because at the end of the day its not about any of them, Rihanna it’s all about You. now do yo dam thing, girl. The more great things that you do Rihanna will always tend to keep them slobbing at the mofo mouth.

  35. Lax April 26, 2012

    I am reminded of how they lossed their ass wips minds last year when you was voted the “Sexiest Woman Alive” I feel for jay because he have got to try and keep
    his wife as happy as he can all the while trying to juggle you and rita and the other artist that he has hired. But then again that is why he get paid the big bucks, Right?
    And some one need to tell the bee hive quietly that being on the Time 100 most influential list is a huggggggge honor. And the bytches or pissy and i love it.

    @A Star is,,,,I left yo ass a early xmas persent, you long lipped bytch, and keep f*%&**% with me….

    shakira’s “give it up to me”…

  38. Saetana April 26, 2012

    What video? All I have is Internet Explorer cannot find the webpage where the video should be. As its a Coldplay commissioned video, who cares about whether it is good or bad anyway? Its not RIHANNA’S video, which I am looking forward to seeing, soon hopefully ;o)

  39. Remey April 26, 2012

    How does this put her other videos to shame? o_0

    This is not meant to be a video! Gosh, this is just a background video you see during concerts. No big deal. TGJ stay trying to make Rih’s career seem lackluster. Last time I checked, all of Rihanna’s videos were solid….even the boring ones.
