QUIZ: Can You Tell These Coldplay Lyrics from Shakespeare Quotes?

Jay-Z called Coldplay’s lead singer Chris Martin a “Modern Day Shakespeare.” We tend to agree.


In a quote to Metro, he says “I have been in the industry long enough to know when I’m in the presence of a genius … and Chris Martin is just that,” the rapper said to the publication. “In years to come, Britain will look back at him as a modern day Shakespeare. He is an incredible recording artist, an incredible songwriter, but where he really comes alive is performing live. If you get the chance to see Coldplay live, do it — you ain’t gonna regret it.” 


Do you have what it takes to tell the two apart?
