Chris Martin recently gave Rihanna a compliment, calling her “the best singer of all time”! We have the scoop on what else the Coldplay vocalist thinks.

Excitement Ahead of Rihanna’s Half-Time Show

As reported by Just Jared, even Chris Martin is anticipating Rihanna’s Super Bowl half-time performance. The Coldplay vocalist has expressed his opinion that “it is rare for her to just sing, which makes it even more special” and also made a further comment about how “you have to be an idiot not to recognize that she’s the best singer of all time.” Rihanna and Chris Martin once collaborated on a 2012 music video, Princess of China, which was filmed in Los Angeles.

Chris Martin Already Praised Rihanna Before

Years before making his statement about Rihanna’s upcoming performance at the Super Bowl half-time, Chris Martin called Rihanna “the Frank Sinatra of our generation” in a 2016 interview and went as far as claiming that she “could turn anything to gold with that voice” because her thick tone “is like a beautifully squeezed tube of toothpaste.”

The pop star is also a favorite of H.E.R., who has said that she would love to hear Rihanna sings ‘Umbrella’, ‘We Found Love’, and ‘Love On the Brain’, all of which are smash hits.
