Justin Timberlake wants to record a duet with Coldplay. The 'SexyBack' singer is a huge fan of the British band - fronted by Chris Martin - and is very interested in working with them. Justin, 26, even compared the 'Speed of Sound' rockers to legendary rock band The Beatles. He said: "I'd love to do a duet with Coldplay - especially Chris Martin. To me they are like a modern-day Beatles." Justin and Chris could be introduced to one another by mutual friend Nelly Furtado.
Justin recently teamed up with the Canadian singer on producer Timbaland's recent hit single 'Give It To Me', while Chris duetted with Nelly on a version of her track 'All Good Things', which he also co-wrote with her. However, the song never made it onto her last album 'Loose' because Coldplay 's record label EMI wouldn't allow it to be used. It is not the first time a duet involving 30-year-old Chris has been stopped by his record company. The musician, who is married to Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow, recorded the original chorus to The Streets' UK hit 'Dry Your Eyes', but it was prevented from being released at the last minute.
