The little snippet shared of the lyric video opens with the visual of a pair of eyes upon a black background, followed by the verses “And they said that we can’t be together. Because we come from different sides. You are My Universe and I just want to put you first” written in a running font in iridescent colours against a stunning dotted black canvas.
ARMYs have also noted that the handwriting in the visualiser looks similar to RM’s handwriting!
Previously, Coldplay’s frontman, Chris Martin, shared on The Kelly Clarkson Show that the song is about someone being told they can’t love a certain another person because they belong to a different ethnicity or sexuality, among other reasons.
This joint single is composed and written by both Coldplay and BTS and produced by hitmaker Max Martin. The song is expected to feature lyrics in both English and Korean.
My Universe will be available in a limited-edition two-track CD, including handwritten lyrics by Coldplay and BTS. RM, Suga and J-Hope are even credited for their contribution to the track. For every purchase made on the Coldplay store of the album, there will be one tree planted, giving an even meaningful edge to the collaboration.
The single will be dropping worldwide this Friday, September 24 EST. The digital release will be accompanied by a CD single (Epiphane version), ahead of Coldplay’s upcoming studio album ‘Music Of The Spheres’, anticipating a release in October.
