PopCrush is rounding up new songs on the radio for August 2012 -- to let you know the hottest tracks expected to hit the airwaves for the last month of summer. August is a popular month for new releases, so we're expecting to hear some great new songs mixed in with some of the summer's biggest hits.
Following the successful collabo with Rihanna, 'Princess of China,' Coldplay are issuing yet another single from their multi-platinum album 'Mylo Xyloto.' 'Hurts Like Heaven' -- the track on which Chris Martin sings, "You use your heart as a weapon / And it hurts like Heaven" -- will be the next Coldplay single to impact airwaves.
Coldplay's 'Mylo Xyloto' is a certified smash hit, having debuted at No. 1 in 34 countries and tallying six million in sales along the way.
The story behind the album will be revealed in a six-part comic series, the first of which will be unveiled at the Comic-Con International in San Diego this week. You're nobody until your immortalized in comic form!
Chris Martin of Coldplay and his wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, are a celeb couple rarely photographed in public together, intentionally trying to sweep the spotlight away from their status, as well, a celeb couple. Photos of the duo are so rare that we couldn't find a decent one for this post! However, during last Friday's (June 30) Coldplay gig in Miami, the singer threw caution to the wind. He did a complete about face, running up the venue steps and into the crowd seats to plant a big ol' smooch on his wife and baby mama Gwynnie's lips ... in front of several tens of thousands of their closest fans.
Since they broke out in 2000, Coldplay have been churning out amazing records that keep fans coming back for more of their signature sound. The British rock outfit -- consisting of vocalist/guitarist/pianist Chris Martin, lead guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman and drummer Will Champion -- have produced 5 albums in total. Three of their five have gone to No. 1 in the U.S., and all five have shot straight to the top of the charts in their homeland of the U.K. So, which of their five chart-topping albums is your favorite?
Rihanna and Coldplay singer Chris Martin go head-to-head, literally, in front of a green screen in this behind-the-scenes clip from the filming of the 'Princess of China' video. They both get to be something they are not for a few moments in time. That's always fun, whether you are a celeb or not.
