K-pop bands BTS and Coldplay’s most awaited collaboration will arrive sooner than their fans imagine. they just unveiled a preview of their upcoming collaboration, ‘My Universe.’
My Universe was co-written by both the British band and the guys from BTS. The track was produced by Max Martin, who directed all of Coldplay’s upcoming album.
While Coldplay had previously shared a tracklist for Music of the Spheres that included “My Universe,” it was not previously known that BTS would feature on the song. The collaboration was officially confirmed when Coldplay’s social networks shared an image in black, blue, and pink colors with a circle shaped by different figures with a code in Spheric.
Coldplay uploaded a TikTok video of them in the studio with BTS as they record the forthcoming single. “You, you are / My universe / And I just want to put you first / And you, you are / My universe / And you make my heart light up inside,” they sing on what seems to be the song’s chorus.
Later BTS also released a similar clip on their Tok-Tok page, although filmed with a different angle and using what appears to be the studio version of ‘My Universe’. A 30-second preview of the song can be heard through Tok-Tok, with vocals from BTS’ Jungkook: “I fly with you, when I’m without you I’m crazy / Now, let’s hold each other’s hands, we are made of each other baby.”
The single, which will be performed in English and Korean, is set to appear on Coldplay’s upcoming album ‘Music of The Spheres’, which will be released on October 15.
Coldplay will release a new single with BTS, “My Universe,” on September 24th.
