This year BTS and Coldplay took the world by storm with their epic collaboration on “My Universe”. Since that time, the two groups have performed live together and entertained fans of both groups with a variety of content. But one thing that ARMYs just learned recently is that V is actually the one who demo the song.
When the collaboration was first announced, it was a huge thing for ARMYs. It’s also huge for the members, as many of them have expressed their love for Coldplay many times.
In particular, one person who always speaks out about their love for the group is member V! Even before having any thoughts on the song, V always said that he wanted to work with the group.
The members of BTS recently sat down with Vogue ḳöŕệä and discussed different parts of their careers and how each one feels about working with Coldplay.
During V’s interview, he explained that there was a behind-the-scenes moment that wasn’t shared with fans but was an important one for him. He explained that he actually sang the full demo version of the track: “It doesn’t appear in the video, but actually, when the vocal guide demo came out in English, I sang it from beginning to end.”
Of course, it cannot be denied that whenever V sings in English or ḳöŕệän, his melody is beautiful and easily attracts the love and attention of fans around the world. However, it seems that it’s not just ARMYs who fell in love with V’s vocals, as he explained about the Coldplay members’ reactions: “The Coldplay members listened and complimented me, saying I was like the second Chris Martin. I’ve listened to that recording a lot since!”
This isn’t the first time Chris Martin has complimented V and his vocals. After the track was released, BTS shared some behind-the-scenes footage from the recording sessions.
Although ARMY couldn’t get enough interaction between Chris Martin and the members, one in particular stood out. While V was recording his part, there was no shortage of the happy look on Chris Martin’s face, even as he tried to sing the same part in ḳöŕệän.
However, Chris’ reaction after V finished recording his part touched ARMYs. Every time V repeats his line, Chris immediately expresses a lot of praise to the idol, including telling V, “Yeah, that was perfect.”
Given how much V is a fan of Coldplay, it’s no surprise that he’s excited to be complimented both times by the members. Hopefully at some point, Coldplay or BTS will release a demo sung by V.
