BTS Scores First Rock Airplay Charts Appearance With Coldplay Collab 'My Universe'

'My Universe' debuts at No. 38 on Alternative Airplay and No. 42 on Rock & Alternative Airplay.

Before this week, BTS boasted appearances on Billboard’s Pop Airplay, Adult Pop Airplay, Adult Contemporary and Rhythmic Airplay charts.

Now the group can count entries on two of Billboard’s rock airplay charts, too.

“My Universe,” Coldplay and BTS’ new collaborative song, debuts at Nos. 38 and 42 on the Alternative Airplay and Rock & Alternative Airplay surveys dated Oct. 2.

On Alternative Airplay, it’s Coldplay’s 29th entry and follows the No. 4-peaking “Higher Power” in June.

Meanwhile, on Rock & Alternative Airplay, the song bows with 925,000 audience impressions, according to MRC Data.

“My Universe” starts on both lists despite just three days of airplay toward the charts, having been released Sept. 24 (the tracking week for airplay tallies ended Sept. 26).

Further gains are likely on the Oct. 9-dated Billboard charts, where “My Universe” could see a high debut on the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100.
