The unexpected collaborators have teamed up for “Miracles (Something Special),” which may or may not be the most quintessential title of a Coldplay song ever. Over a mellow house beat and funky guitar line, Chris Martin name-checks inspirational figures like Gandhi and Nelson Mandella, and sings, “In you, I see someone special / You’ve got bright in your brains / You can break through those chains / You’ll go higher than we’ve ever gone.”
Sean Don, meanwhile, comes through with his own take on beating the odds, rapping about the obstacles he faced while chasing his hip-hop dreams. “Maybe I could be the new Ali of music, probably / Instead of doing it just as a hobby like these boys told me to,” he raps.
“Miracles (Something Special)” appears on Coldplay’s new EP Kaleidoscope, out today (July 14). The five-track project also includes recent single “All I Can Think About Is You,” and, of course, their Chainsmokers collab, “Something Just Like This.” Upbeat vibes all around.
