“I’ll tell you the truth: I was listening to a lot of Katy Perry,” Chris shared in a Beats by Dre video about his band Coldplay‘s hit song “A Sky Full of Stars.” “A lot of her songs have the same chord sequence the whole time. Your body feels comfortable with them and then the melody’s changing on top so there’s a groove you really get in to and then also you’re kept interested… so I was like, ‘that’s an amazing way of doing songs.’”
