But what does it mean?!!
Here comes the pun - is that a Compli-Mint Chris Martin. Ohh so fresh.
Okay, seriously though, here's more of what he had to say on Riri
"She is the Frank Sinatra of our generation," Martin told The Guardian. "She can turn anything into gold with that voice.
Here’s the thing: if you speak to a good singing teacher about great opera singers, they will talk about consistency of tone."
"Rihanna has this thick tone, so it's very hard to annoy anybody," he continued. "It's like a beautifully squeezed tube of toothpaste.
When you think of Rihanna's voice you think of this whole, rich thing, solid like a tree trunk, and Drake is pretty similar. But Rihanna’s voice is just delicious for your ear.
Sinatra had the same thing; anything he sang sounded pleasing to most people."
