Another bout of speculation on a collaboration between Coldplay and BTS emerged after lyrics from “My Universe,” thought to be the British band’s new song, was registered on lyrics database MatchLyrics on Thursday.
However, BTS’ label Bit Hit Music said that it could not confirm the news and asked fans for their understanding.
Since April, there have been talks about a potential collaboration when Chris Martin was reported to be in Korea. Earlier in June, a tweet appeared with a snapshot of lyrics from Coldplay’s new song from Genius, the largest lyrics database in the world. The now-deleted tweet reportedly included “Feat. BTS,” sending fans of both bands abuzz.
BTS covered the rock band’s “Fix You” in February at MTV’s Unplugged Presents, and the quartet reacted with a tweet that said “beautiful” in Korean and “Love” in English along with the members’ initials.
