K-Song Review: My Universe by Coldplay and BTS

 Aanchal Yadav, Delhi 

Reminiscing the most startling highlights when Coldplay and BTS decided to drop a song they had collaborated on by the name ‘My Universe’. The Official Lyric Video was released on September 24, 2021, and the Official Music Video premiered on September 30, 2021. The song is produced by the Swedish record producer Max Martin and features English as well as Korean lyrics. A documentary about ‘My Universe’ featuring Coldplay and BTS was also released on September 26, 2021, which included exclusive behind-the-scenes and the thought process that was put into while making the music video. 

MV Interpretation

The MV portrays a story with an imagination contemplating by virtue how from now music will be forbidden across the spheres of the universe while unveiling the three different planets and the three different bands. With the help of DJ Lafrique, they defy the rules and regulations and unite with each other through music while running away from the silencers. The MV includes the use of VFX, CGI, characters and holograms. The song talks about how it doesn’t matter if you’re close to the people you love; what matters is how the bond remains alive. Coldplay and BTS have depicted the entirety of togetherness in such an admirable way.

The first verse starts with Chris Martin, expressing how people cannot capture the beauty, the infinite universe that resides in one’s eyes. Consecutively, followed by Jung Kook sings about his dreams, where he flies every night to meet the people he loves, indubitably the ARMYs and greets them with a smile every time they meet.

“You (You), you are (You are) my universe;
And I (I) just want (Just want) to put you first;
And you (You), you are (You are) my universe;
And you make my world light up inside.”

The chorus includes everyone singing in perfect harmony, and the lyrics discourse about how ARMYs are their universe. The light that resides in our hearts resonates deeply with each other. The chorus enlightens a glorious, beautiful melody, making me feel like I am on cloud 9, that all my problems are just not there anymore, submerging myself feeling high.

In the next part, they enunciate how people seem to say they can’t be together if they come from different sides and backgrounds. But it doesn’t matter because if the love is there, then nothing can stop people from uniting with each other, and music comprehends a bigger picture in between. After all, music has no language or boundaries. In the song’s bridge, j-hope and SUGA sing about how we create a new world for them in their cosmos, where we serve as their sun and stars, and how all of life’s difficulties are only momentary. Everything will be alright. We should not lose hope and keep shining as we have been from the start because they will always be there with us and follow us to adorn this night that already is so beautiful.

As the pre-chorus advances, they discuss how ARMYs are their universe, how life is empty and strange without them and how we are just meant for each other. The song is about how love transcends all rules and regulations, race, colour and sexuality. Especially during Covid-19 when the world was divided and left in shambles the one thing that helped reduce the growing distance between people was music.

I completely relate to the lyrics of My Universe. When my life gets hectic, the only thing that brings me serenity is music. For me, BTS is a part of my world that I never want to let go of. They are more than just a boy band; they are the most important part of my life. This song is worth listening to as the lyrics are beautiful, the beats are catchy and an all-around intriguing and appealing.

    This is a classic Coldplay arrangement. Layered, rich, and resonant with spatial sound. Both Coldplay and BTS parts are seamlessly merged in this song. I was amazed by how well Korean verses fit together. This song has it all from driving chorus, exquisite production, emotions, depth, magnificent vocals and harmonisation, to a universal message of “Love” that transcends every boundaries. Also, happy two years of this gem!
