Chris Martin proved to have some impressive Spanish skills during the Global Citizen Festival in Hamburg, Germany on Thursday night.
The “Coldplay” frontman and Shakira sang the Colombian superstar’s hit “Chantaje” during the festival. This year, the annual festival took place on the eve of the 2017 G20 Hamburg summit.
Shakira joined Martin for a rendition of “A Sky Full Of Stars” and “Yellow” during the concert. Martin returned the favor by singing reggaeton star Maluma’s parts in “Chantaje” and supplying back-up vocals for her performance of “Me Enamor?.”
“Now Chris, you’re up. Let’s put your Spanish to the test,” Shakira said before the two sang ‘Chantaje.’ “Hey, we just rehearsed this yesterday so whatever happens happens, right?”
“I’m here to represent the non-Spanish speakers,” Martin responded.
