    Coldplay singer Chris Martin opened up about his friendship and business partnership with Jay-Z in a recent chat with Pitchfork. He said, "We're from very different backgrounds. But we love the same stuff everyone else loves."

    But that's not all.

    Martin digs the beats and the rhymes that Jay-Z drops.

    "I love his music, and he's a super cool guy, and he's genuine. I respect his decisions, and we have the same feelings about trying to be true in your art. It just happens that one of us is a nerd and the other is the coolest multi-entrepreneur on the planet."

    Oh, we love Chris Martin's self-deprecation.

    Should Chris Martin and Jay-Z collaborate again?
