It’s official, Coldplay and BTS are teaming up for a song!
British rock band Coldplay dropped on Monday, Sept. 13, the teaser image and release date for their upcoming single My Universe that features K-pop superstars BTS. The track will be released on Sept. 24.

Hours after the teaser release, BTS and Coldplay released a preview of their upcoming collaboration. The video clips showed the K-pop group recording with the band’s frontman Chris Martin.
Even if My Universe is the first musical collab of Coldplay and BTS, both groups have crossed paths in the past. They previously met at a virtual interview for the YouTube Originals show Released.
In February 2021, BTS performed a cover of Coldplay’s Fix You for MTV Unplugged Presents: BTS.
