Coldplay / BTS collaboration “My Universe” came close to universal acclaim, as the two groups might expect, Rolling Stone landed at No. 1 on the song charts, topping the rankings for the first time.
“My Universe” was not a streaming monster, compared to the melodies that are usually on the charts; It collected 8.5 million streams in its first week. But it was created by the sales power of the track – which is to be expected with some BTS tracks – with 136,000 downloads for the Premier Frame.
The news was as good as the Billboard charts, where “My Universe” topped the top 1 on three main charts: Hot 100, Global 200 and Global Excel. US rank ranking.
Worldwide, the collaboration claimed 95.4 million streams and 142,400 downloads in its first week, according to Billboard.
Probably needless to say, it’s a rare position to be at No. 1 in Coldplay these days more than BTS. The British group only reached the top of the Hot 100 once, including “Viva La Vida” in 2008. BTS has now reached the top of the Billboard, “Dynamite”, “Savage Love” (laxed – Siren Beat), “” Life Goes On, “” Butter, “” Permission to Dance “and now” My Universe, “in the last 14 months.
The two bands are congratulating each other on social media. Coldplay tweeted: “Congratulations RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V and Jung Kook ... Thanks to ColdPlayer and ARMY and everyone who made this happen. Love C, G, W, J & P. BTS replied: “It is always an honor to have all this happen to you!” Big love and congratulations! Thanks to ARMY and Coldplayers. Love r, j, s, h, j, j, v. “
