    COLDPLAY AND BTS DEBUT AT #1 ON BILLBOARD HOT 100

    “MY UNIVERSE” MAKES HISTORY AS FIRST HOT 100 #1 BY TWO CO-BILLED LEAD GROUPS

     

    Coldplay have today earned their second Billboard Hot 100 #1, their first since 2008, with their hit new collaboration “My Universe” with BTS. The single makes history as the first Hot 100 #1 ever by two co-billed lead groups, in addition to topping the Digital Song Sales, Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and Hot Alternative Songs charts.

     

    “My Universe” has also shattered records internationally, achieving the biggest first week download number in the UK this year and debuting at #1 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts. The single also finished the week at #3 on the Official UK Charts and was the #1 most viewed song on YouTube last week with a total of 76.6 million combined views across uploads.

     

    “My Universe” is taken from Coldplay’s forthcoming album Music Of The Spheres, which arrives on October 15th.

    • Lord have mercy... what has happened to the band of my childhood? Everyday Life was mildly enjoyable, but the goodwill they earned from me with that album is now gone. I could even forgive AHFOD as a bad mistake, but here they've gone and made an album that would somehow be worse than AHFOD if it didn't have Coloratura. This seriously sounds like an album for preteens or something. Why does Chris need to sound like Alvin the Chipmunk on Biutyful? Why? Does he have anyone in his professional life who can tell him no? It's just a shame they still seem so desperate for pop relevance after all these years.  I don't expect them to make Parachutes or AROBTTH again, nor do I mind them trying new things. But there really is no excuse for them to churn out the most generic, uninspired corporate pop trash imaginable. That's called regression, not "change."
    • I already came to terms with the fact that Coldplay are going through a decline, which is normal for most artists and bands once they start getting old. Artists with high integrity tend to be the exception, and there are others like The Killers who seem to get better with each release. Analyzing Coldplay's long career retrospectively, it becomes more clear to me that they peaked with Viva La Vida, and they weren't able to be as prolific and creative ever since. I'm not expecting that much for their next LPs really, but it would be interesting to see if they will continue to make music with this artistic approach (chasing trends, doing collabs with popstars, targeting a young audience, etc.). If this becomes the case, then I'm afraid their worst album is yet to come.  
    • Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends (9.7) A Rush of Blood to the Head (9.5) Parachutes (9.2) Mylo Xyloto (9.1) Everyday Life (9.0) Music of the Spheres (8.5) X&Y (8.3) A Head Full of Dreams (7.2) Ghost Stories (6.0)   And I do think that's where MotS will be. Can't see it higher than 8.7 or lower than 8.3. AHFoD would probably be a 7.7 or 7.8 if the production on songs like Up&Up and Amazing Day were reasonable. Overall, not a perfect album and I do wish there were more guitars but pleasantly surprised. 🙂 Love the Jon Hopkins influences, as well. And you can bet I will be doing everything I can to hear this album live. Especially Coloratura, Infinity Sign, Humankind and People of the Pride.
