Coldplay Gives BTS A Touching Shout-Out With A “Special Guest” On Stage During “Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball 2022”

Coldplay taught the 16,000-person audience how to show love for BTS 💜

Nearly three years ago, BTS and British rock band Coldplay began discussing the possibility of working together. What started as a collaboration became a heartwarming friendship between the two world-famous groups.

BTS and Coldplay released their collaboration song “My Universe” in 2021 after overcoming obstacles related to COVID-19 and Coldplay Chris Martin‘s initial doubts and judgments about working with the superstar K-Pop group.

A few years ago, I felt like we had to play a certain kind of music all the time, we had to fit into a box. And, I felt that way about my life also. And I met some good people and read some good books and met some great teachers and they seemed to be happy, and the thing that made them was not having fear of what you don’t know and people you don’t understand yet. You just ask.

— Chris Martin

The two groups have since formed a mutual respect and admiration for each other that they continue to prove, showing their heartwarming friendship whenever they can.
