According to Billboard, 'My Universe' was released September 24 on Parlophone/Atlantic Records and previews Coldplay's album Music of the Spheres, due Oct. 15. Sung in mostly English with some lyrics in Korean, 'My Universe' drew 11.5 million U.S. streams and 5.5 million radio airplay audience impressions and sold 127,000 downloads and physical singles combined in its first week, ending Sept. 30, according to MRC Data.

While BTS adds its sixth leader, all since September 2020, among several other notable achievements, Coldplay earns its second Hot 100 No. 1, and first since 2008 with ‘My Universe’. The track debuts atop the Digital Song Sales chart, where it's BTS' ninth No. 1, extending the septet's record for the most among groups, and Coldplay's second. Coldplay claims its second Hot 100 No. 1, after 'Viva La Vida' ruled the June 28, 2008, chart. The group waited 13 years, three months and two weeks between No. 1s.

'My Universe' is BTS' ninth Hot 100 top 10, dating to its first, 'Fake Love' (No. 10 debut and peak, June 2018). BTS has achieved its Hot 100 No. 1s over a span of a year and just over a month. As 'Dynamite', 'Life Goes On', 'Butter', 'Permission to Dance' and 'My Universe' have all debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100, BTS ties for the most first-place arrivals. The group now shares the mark with Drake and Ariana Grande.

Max Martin is one of the credited co-writers and co-producers of 'My Universe.' Additionally, the song premieres atop the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and Hot Alternative Songs charts. The song became BTS’s first entry on any Billboard rock/alternative charts.

Below 'My Universe' on the Hot 100, The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber's 'Stay' slips to No. 2 after six weeks at No. 1.
