Coldplay frontman Chris Martin spoke with Radio 1 about the song he wrote for R&B star Jamelia, called ‘See it in a Boy’s Eyes’, which he says was only meant for her. “No-one was ever supposed to know that I wrote it to be honest,” he said. “The record companies kind of screw that up. My perspective is, I think she’s an amazing singer and I had nothing to do for a week, so I thought, ‘I wonder if I could ever write a song for Jamelia?’ This is what I’m saying – you’ve got to go for things in life haven’t you? Jamelia then, in return, when she’s an enormous global superstar, she might mention the words ‘fair trade’ when she picks up an MTV award.”
