Jay-Z: Chris Martin is a genius
Coldplay frontman and piano player Chris Martin has been described as a "genius" by his close friend Jay-Z.
The rapper is set to perform with Coldplay in Las Vegas tonight as part of the city's New Year's Eve celebrations and Jay-Z told BBC Newsbeat he is looking forward to sharing a stage with Martin again.
He stated the singer-songwriter is one of the most-talented people of their generation and added that he would love the chance to work with him in the studio again.
"Any time you can collaborate with that sort of genius, you jump at the chance, I don't care who you are," Jay-Z said of the piano player.
The pair have performed live together on several occasions in the past - including at a stadium opening for the New York Yankees - while Martin and Coldplay have previously appeared on each other's songs.
Martin looks likely to have a busy year ahead with Coldplay, as the band have already been confirmed for a number of festival appearances in 2011.
The group will be playing shows in Holland, Poland, Belgium and Brazil over the course of the next 12 months.
