My Universe: BTS and Coldplay collaborate for a soul stirring beautiful song; ARMY calls it ’magical’
When two titans of the music industry come together, nothing short of ‘magic’ is expected and Coldplay and BTS (RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jin, Jimin, V, Jungkook) have managed to do exactly that with their first collaboration for the song #MyUniverse! The official lyrical video for the same was released today on Coldplay’s YouTube channel and the only words which escaped our mouth as we heard the soul-stirring number is ‘song of the year’! This is a collaboration we deserved and wanted the most. My Universe speaks about the language of love and believing in it. The title captures the essence of the song beautiful as it says ‘You, you are my Universe, and I just want to put you first!’
For My Universe, they chose to go the pop-rock way and the way the style and lyrics have been amalgamated into one, the Korean versus with English is beautiful, each bringing a nuance of their own. The rap line adds their flavour to the song with a section in between which is beautifully blended with the entire vibe of My Universe. The deep voice of V aka Kim Taehyung in the middle section is unmissable. The music is upbeat and rhythmic which makes you tap on your feet easily. It is a style that you enjoy humming in isolation or with friends.
‘And they said we can’t be together because we come from different sides,” another verse reads. This is as if Coldplay and BTS are talking about their worlds using it as an analogy for their collaboration! Two different styles and worlds of music coming together and ARMY is already seen shrieking ‘You are my Universe!’
ARMY has termed this the ‘song of the year’ and magical and we concur! The song is already trending in several parts.
For this dream collaboration, Chris Martin had visited Seoul, South Korea sometime back and met up with the septet. BTS and Coldplay even met up in New York two days back. Their pictures have been going viral. Have you heard the song yet? It is no secret that there has been mutual admiration on both sides, BTS and Coldplay for each other’s work. The official schedule of BTS and Coldplay collab was released recently and another video is expected soon.
