"Jon Chu's letter to Coldplay (slightly condensed) & the inspo for my Oscar dress last night. Jon wrote: 'The last scene of [Crazy Rich Asians] shows this realization... It's an empowering, emotional march and needs an anthem that lives up to and beyond her inner triumph, which is where Yellow comes in. It would be such an honor to use your song that gave me so much strength throughout the years, to underscore this final part of our film. [This movie] will give a whole generation of Asian-Americans, and others, the same sense of pride I got when I heard your song. I want all of them to have an anthem that makes them feel as beautiful as your words and melody made me feel when I needed it most. Your consideration would mean so much,'" the actress shared in an Instagram post.
