“My Universe,” a collaboration between BTS and Coldplay, hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
 
According to Billboard, the single debuted at No. 1 on the chart, replacing “Stay” by the Australian rapper the Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber, which was No. 1 for six consecutive weeks.  
 
“My Universe,” released on Sept. 24, is BTS’s sixth song to top the chart after “Dynamite” (2020), “Butter” (2021), “Permission to Dance” (2021), “Life Goes On” (2020) and “Savage Love (Laxed-Siren Beat” (2020). That was accomplished in 13 months, the fastest since The Beatles scored six No. 1 songs within a year and two weeks between 1964 to 1966 with "I Feel Fine," "Eight Days a Week," "Ticket to Ride," "Help!," "Yesterday" and "We Can Work It Out," according to Billboard.  
 
It is the fifth BTS track to debut at No. 1 on the chart after the song’s release. For Coldplay, it is its second No. 1 in 13 years since 2008's “Viva la Vida.”
