"We love them deeply," singer Chris Martin told Elvis Duran on Thursday morning (Oct. 14).
Coldplay's Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland Zoom'd into Elvis Duran and the Morning Show on Thursday morning (Oct. 14) to discuss the joy of collaborating with K-pop superstars BTS on the hit Music of the Spheres single "My Universe" and how the unexpected team-up came together.
"Someone said to us 18 months ago, 'oh BTS want to do a song with you,'" Martin said, telling Duran that the group love the septet's music, but weren't sure if a joint song made sense. "That's never going to work, that's ridiculous," Martin recalled thinking. But during the Spheres sessions, when "My Universe" manifested, "it felt like this was the song for BTS and us to do," Martin said, describing the track as being about "love that's difficult that has to transcend borders."
