New Delhi: BTS recently released a documentary in collaboration with Coldplay. The video revealed Chris Martin traveled to South Korea for two days to record the song ‘My Universe’.
On Sunday, BTS released a documentary titled ‘Coldplay X BTS Inside My Universe Documentary’ which gave a closer look at how the song My Universe was made. The video was shared on the K-pop group’s YouTube channel Bangtan TV. To tell you, BTS approached Coldplay 18 months ago.
“About 18 months ago, I got a message from somebody. They said BTS wants to do a song with you. I said, ‘How? How would that work?’ I didn’t understand how that could be possible,” Chris said.
Chris traveled to South Korea for two days and recorded the song with them. While RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook were all excited to record the song.
“This song is all about us creating something together. That’s why Chris came here in person and recorded with us as well. I really loved the theme ‘not alone but together,” V said to which J-Hope added, “It could have been done remotely but we could add more sincerity to the song this way.”
Jungkook admitted that he was scared he might mess the song up. “It feels like when I first debuted. Chris Martin will be directing my performance and I’m worried I’ll mess up,” he said.
However, Chris was impressed with him. “Please tell JK he’s so impressive,” he requested the translator. Chris added, “I think it’s very special to me that the most popular artist in the world speaks Korean and is like a group of brothers, not from the West, and it just feels very hopeful to me in terms of thinking of the world as one family. Then of course, when you see how they are as people and their songs, it’s really a message of togetherness and finding, being yourself, all the stuff I agree with.”
BTS and Coldplay ‘My universe’ song was released on Friday. Since the release of the song, ARMY is in awe. It was then revealed that BTS had gifted Coldplay with modernized hanboks. Later, Jin revealed he received a guitar from Chris.
