BTS/Coldplay new song #1 on Billboard… “The first group collaboration”
‘My Universe’, sung by BTS along with the world-famous pop group Coldplay, topped Billboard’s main single chart ‘Hot 100’.
Billboard stated that although a song collaborated with singers had topped the charts before, this was the first time a song sang by a group had topped the charts.
This is the sixth time BTS has won 1st place on the Hot 100 after ‘Dynamite’ last year, and Coldplay is the first time in 13 years since 2008.
As soon as BTS released the song, the number of songs that debuted at number one increased to five, which is the third record after Ariana Grande and Drake.
In particular, this is the third time that a song with Korean lyrics topped the Billboard Hot 100 after BTS sang ‘Savage Love’ and ‘Life Go’s On’ last year.
‘My Universe’ recorded 11.5 million streaming in the first week, 5.5 million radio index, and 127,000 downloads.
