The Coldplay/BTS collaboration “My Universe” was met with about as close to universal acclimation as the two groups could hope for, landing at No. 1 on the Rolling Stone songs chart, the first time topping that ranking for either ensemble.
“My Universe” was not a streaming monster, compared to the tunes that usually top the chart; it amassed 8.5 million streams in its debut week. But that was more than made up for by the track’s sales strength — something that’s to be expected with any BTS track — with 136,000 downloads for the premiere frame.
The news was just as good on the Billboard charts, where “My Universe” bowed at No. 1 on three key charts: the Hot 100, the Global 200 and the Global Excl. U.S. rankings.
