BTS and Coldplay's 'My Universe' ranks 7th on Billboard Global 200
“My Universe,” a collaborative single by BTS and British rock band Coldplay, ranked No. 7 in Billboard Global 200 chart.
Billboard traditionally updates its music charts every Tuesday after announcing the top 10 songs of the main charts a day earlier. The global chart was established last September to rank the top songs globally based on digital sales and online streaming in over 200 regions worldwide.
The song also ranked No. 4 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, four ranks higher than last week.
Experts predict that “My Universe” will remain among the top 20 songs of the Hot 100. The song debuted No. 1 in the chart on the first week of its release last month and ranked No. 12 and 18 for the next two weeks.
Meanwhile, BTS’s other two songs “Permission to Dance” and “DNA” were certified double platinum by the Record Industry Association of Japan for accumulating more than 100 million streams last month, according to Big Hit Music Tuesday.
