Last week, the two groups released teaser videos of their collaboration on their social media channels including TikTok, which featured Martin (wearing a hoodie that read "BTS Crews" on its back) singing with BTS members while facing each other in a circle.

One of the BTS members appeared to be wearing a hoodie with "Coldplay" written along its sleeve in the clip shared on the K-pop group's official TikTok channel.

The teaser clips featured the chorus of their new song, which reads: "You, you are, my universe; and I just want to put you first; and you, you are, my universe; and you make my heart light up inside."

"My Universe" is also featured on Coldplay's upcoming full length album Music of the Spheres, which is out on October 15.

Earlier this month, BTS and Martin were featured in a special episode of YouTube Originals' weekly music series released on September 10, during which they spoke about not being the best dancers, as well as the pressures of global stardom and creating positive energy amid the pandemic through the K-pop group's recent "#PermissiontoDance Challenge."
