BTS and Coldplay announced their collaboration for their new song ‘My Universe’ on Monday. After months of speculation, the official declaration broke the internet. Thousands of fans swarmed Twitter and shared their excitement with the world.
Fans of both bands were asking the members to drop a preview of the song and on Tuesday, BTS heard their wishes. The South Korean boy band’s official twitter handle dropped a 15 second video. The clip shows Coldplay’s Chris Martin standing around a mic with Jimin, V, Jungkook, Jin, Suga, J-Hope and RM.
The mutual admiration between the members of both bands was visible in this clip as well. Chris Martin is seen wearing a BTS hoodie while Jungkook is spotted sporting a Coldplay hoodie. The track is slated for a release on September 24 and the ARMY (BTS fandom) has already begun a countdown.
BTS wrote on Twitter, “Check out our exclusive preview clip of My Universe with #Coldplay! Link https://vt.tiktok.com/ZSJEYqnmp/ #ColdplayXBTS #MyUniverse #BTS.”
The band also shared a picture with the caption “It’s coming. @coldplay”.
BTS members Kim Tae-hyung had expressed his desire of collaborating with Coldplay in an earlier interview. While, Namjoon shared a story of attending a Coldplay concert in Korea during a press conference.
The K-pop band even performed Coldplay’s hit song ‘Fix You’ on MTV Unplugged in February and their performance received appreciation from Coldplay’s Twitter account. In a recent interview, Chris Martin said, "When it comes to BTS, I just have nothing but love and respect for them. All seven guys, I think they're just cool, stand for good things and sing about cool things. I love the fact that they are so huge and sing a lot in Korean, they don't always have to sing in English. I love them a lot and so if the right song came along, I wouldn't ever say no."
The song will also feature on Coldplay’s ninth studio album ‘Music of the Spheres’ which will be released on October 15.
