BTS’ collaboration with the Grammy-winning band Coldplay is getting legendary with every day passing. The global acts teamed up for the first time for the pre-release single ‘My Universe’ for Coldplay’s upcoming album ‘Music of the Spheres’. Released on September 24, we got remixes, lyric video and even a music video with the boys together. And much to ARMY’s delight, it is making history on all kinds of platforms like Billboard.

We first had BTS’ leader RM become the youngest and second-most credited songwriter in K-pop thanks to his contribution in the lyrics for ‘My Universe’. With the addition of this Coldtan collaboration, RM now has written 178 songs. And in just a day after its release, ‘My Universe’ reached #1 on iTunes in 95 countries. Well, on October 5, Billboard announced that the single featuring Coldplay and BTS had topped its chart.

BTS make Billboard history with 'My Universe'

‘My Universe has become the 1,129th song to hit #1 on Billboard Hot 100. It is also the 57th song to debut directly at #1 in the history of Billboard. This makes it Coldplay’s second song to hit #1 after ‘Viva La Vida’ in 2008. And while ARMY is happy for Coldplay, they have more cause to celebrate. BTS has made history with ‘My Universe’ becoming their sixth song to hit #1 on Billboard Hot 100. It is also this week’s top-selling song followed by their English single ‘Butter’.

And it seems that BTS is the artist with the most #1 hits on Billboard Hot 100 of the 2020s. They are also the second-highest act to have spent the most weeks at #1 in the 2020s with their songs topping for 17 non-consecutive weeks. They’re also the first group or band with the most #1 debuts on Hot 100 along with 5 of their songs debuting at #1. ‘My Universe’ has also become the first collaborative track by two lead groups in history to reach and debut at #1.

Not only that, fans are impressed that BTS is in the same league as The Beatles. It seems that BTS became the second act after The Beatles to have six songs top Hot 100 in a year and just over a month. The Beatles had achieved this milestone in a year and two weeks back in 1964. The BTS songs that have topped the charts are ‘Dynamite’, Jason Derulo’s ‘Savage Love’, ‘Life Goes On’, ‘Butter’, ‘Permission to Dance’ and Coldplay’s ‘My Universe’. Additionally, ‘My Universe’ has topped Global 200 and Global 200 Excl. US charts.

'Proud of them'

ARMY is trending ‘first band in history’ and #MyUniverseNo1onHot100 as they can’t contain their excitement over this achievement. They made tweets like, “BTS’ 6TH #1 ON THE HOT100, THE FIRST BAND IN HISTORY TO EARN 5 #1 DEBUTS ON THE CHART & THE FASTEST TO ACCUMULATE SIX #1 HITS SINCE THE BEATLES IN 64-66, I’M SO HAPPY & PROUD OF THEM,” and “bts south korea pride unicef ambassadors time most influential people highest honor van fleet award first korean act history first band in history BTS WORLD DOMINATION AND BTS PAVED THE WAY.” “Proud to witness all six of bts’ #1 on hot100. <3 FIRST BAND IN HISTORY,” added one ARMY.
