Read ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Director Jon M. Chu’s Letter to Coldplay Asking to Use “Yellow”

Rebecca Sun, writing at The Hollywood Reporter:

To director Jon M. Chu, the only tune that could fit the bill was Coldplay’s 2000 breakthrough single “Yellow.” Warner Bros. was concerned that the song’s title was problematic (the word has been used as an ethnic slur against Asians), but that’s exactly why Chu wanted it. “We’re going to own that term,” he told The Hollywood Reporter in an outtake from THR’s cover story. “If we’re going to be called yellow, we’re going to make it beautiful.”
