As Billboard reports, lead singer Chris Martin explained his composing process for “Hymn for the Weekend” with The Wall Street Journal, revealing its unexpected origins as a late-night club song.

“I thought I’d like to have a song called ‘Drinks on Me’ where you sit on the side of a club and buy everyone drinks because you’re so f—ing cool,” Martin began. “I was chuckling about that, when this melody came — ‘drinks on me, drinks on me’ — then the rest of the song came out. I presented it to the rest of the band and they said, ‘We love this song, but there’s no way you can sing “drinks on me.”‘ So that changed into ‘drink from me’ and the idea of having an angelic person in your life. Then that turned into asking Beyoncé to sing on it.”

Beyoncé is also scheduled to join Coldplay during their Super Bowl 50 half-time performance—presumably to lend her vocals to a live rendition of “Hymn,” or so we can hope.
