Lionel Richie's Coldplay Hope

Subscribe to Lionel Richie alerts

Lionel Richie wants to sing with Coldplay.

The 'Dancing on the Ceiling' hitmaker says he is a massive fan of Chris Martin's band and they are top of his collaboration wish-list.

He said: "I love Coldplay. Those are the guys I would most like to do something with."

However, if the 'Viva La Vida' stars are unavailable, Lionel would be happy to work with newly-reunited boy band Blue after recently appearing on stage with them for a rendition of his classic track 'Easy'.

He added: "I'd love to record 'Easy' with them.

"It sounded really good and they knew just what they wanted. I had to ask them where they wanted me to come in on my own song, so they were down with it."

Lionel has a long list of British stars he wants to collaborate with.

He has previously spoken about how much he wants to perform with Duffy, The Ting Tings and U2.

He said: "I love Duffy, whom I've just discovered - does she write her own stuff? If she does we're on fire because she's great.

"I like The Ting Tings, I love Coldplay and U2. I want to work with them. Their diversity gives me inspiration and makes me say, 'I want to try that.' "
