Chris Martin is reportedly helping model and television presenter  Alexa Chung launch a music career.

The 37-year-old Paradise hitmaker is believed to have met up with Chung on a recent trip to New York, where she played him songs that she had been working on.

Speaking to Heat magazine, a source said: "He listened to a demo album of tracks, which he played to his Coldplay bandmates and his producer contacts, and has already set up meetings for her with his Coldplay record label, Parlophone, as well as his friend Jay Z's Roc Nation record label."

The insider further explained that 30-year-old Chung first became interested in performing when she was dating Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys.

They added: "She was on the verge of doing something when she was going out with Alex Turner, but instead she decided to move to New York and continue to write and work on her music.

"The last thing she wanted to do was launch herself into the music world and be a flop, which she knew would be career suicide."
