What BTS members think of ‘My Universe’
Coldplay X BTS Inside ‘My Universe’ Documentary Martin is shown traveling to South Korea to record “My Universe” with Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook. In the documentary, members of BTS and the Coldplay singer give multiple meanings to “My Universe”.
“This song is about all of us creating something together,” V said in the documentary. “That’s why Chris came here personally and even recorded with us. I really liked the theme ‘not alone but together’.
Suga and J-Hope also gave their own interpretation of the song’s purpose.
“‘The universe created by you and me.’ This is in line with the messages we are trying to get across,” Suga said.
J-Hope said, “At the end of the day, he’s trying to say, ‘You’re the one who created my universe.’”

Coldplay’s Chris Martin Gives Another Meaning to the Song
While Coldplay and BTS have vastly different career trajectories, both bands share positive messages and have strong fan bases. Because of this, collaborating on “My Universe” makes sense for both groups.
At the end of the documentary, Martin gave a lengthy explanation of the song.
“Well, the song is about how the power of love transcends all things, boundaries and rules, and gender, and race, and every sexuality,” Martin said. “If you just look at people who are divided by limits or can’t be together, that’s what this song is about. About how nothing can stop people from loving each other.”
Is ‘My Universe’ BTS and Coldplay Collaborating for the First Time?
rm want bts fans to join the song
Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, BTS and Coldplay have not been able to perform “My Universe” together. In Coldplay X BTS Inside ‘My Universe’ Documentary, RM of BTS told that it is disappointing for both the groups.
“Chris said it was a very personal song for him. Part of him is frustrated by the fact that Coldplay can’t play live at a concert,” RM said.
RM also shared that he wants to incorporate BTS’s fantasy ARMY into the song’s message.
“I thought how to make it relevant to BTS. Since the lyrics of the song are ‘You are my universe,’ this song should definitely be dedicated to the military.”
“My Universe” will also be included on Coldplay’s upcoming album, ball music, which will be released on October 15.
