“Even this trial is now only temporary / You will still shine like now.” “My Universe” released on Friday by world-famous British band Coldplay has some Korean lines in its lyrics. Known as a joint project between BTS and Coldplay, it has raised expectations among their fans. It presents itself as a single, seamless scene with a Korean rap part led by BTS and the English lyrics of Coldplay singer Chris Martin intertwined.
“My Universe” is an animated, medium tempo electronic dance song lasting 3 minutes and 46 seconds. Joining in the writing and songwriting of this song, the members of BTS deliver words of comfort and consolation as they sing in Korean, “Every night, [I] fly towards you forgetting that it is only a dream. I find you with a smile âandâ A star embroidered with love that illuminates me. You in my universe. You make me a different world.
At 1 p.m. on Friday, Coldplay made the song public on major music streaming services around the world while also releasing a music video with handwritten lyrics in English and Korean by the two global pop icons visually mixed with special graphic images.
