Coldplay, X&Y (2005)

Label: Capitol/Parlaphone

B.o.B: “My buddy was into Coldplay, and he would try and play it for me, but I was just a kid. That was before I could really appreciate the musical value of what it was. It wasn’t about the stuff you think about as a kid, when you’re worried about cartoons and cars. So the song concepts didn’t pull me in that much.

This album was a different direction from the one that they had started in. I eventually became a fan of this project and a fan of theirs, and it made me go back and listen to their other albums.”
