BTS Army Unite! The video for “My Universe”, the inspired collaboration between British rock band Coldplay and Korean pop sensation BTS has premiered on YouTube and it is a visual masterpiece. The latest single from Coldplay’s new album Music Of The Spheres (out October 15th), “My Universe” has already amassed over 100 million streams on Spotify and topped sales and airplay charts across the world.
Directed by Dave Meyers (who also directed Coldplay’s “Higher Power” video), the video is a visual feast that features the boys of BTS and Coldplay uniting together with alien supergroup Supernova 7 to defy a ‘music ban’ that exists within the fictional universe of The Spheres.

“My Universe” follows on from Coldplay’s previous collaborations with Chainsmokers (“Something Just Like This”), Rihanna (“Princess In China”), Beyonce (“Hymn For The Weekend”) among others.
