Thanks to their influence and insane musicality, BTS gets the chance to meet and work with various American musicians. 

BTS started seeing Coldplay after the Kpop group contacted Chris Martin for a collaboration. According to news site NME, Martin planned on rejecting the offer since they think their styles don’t click. However, he sat on the offer for a while, before writing “My Universe” and coming to Korea to record the song with BTS.
