K-pop super band BTS member Jin’s hit The Astronaut has become the fastest single by a solo artist to reach a million copies. Following the K-Pop boy band’s collaboration with Chris Martin and company on the mega-hit My Universe on the band’s 2021 LP Music of the Spheres, the 29-year-old star teamed up with the Yellow hitmakers to pen his latest track, reports aceshowbiz.com. #Jin’s Single ‘The Astronaut’ is the Fastest Solo Album to Surpass 1 Million Copies Sold.
The Astronaut has since broken a new astronomical record. It has shifted more than 1,024,382 copies as of November 12, according to The Korea Economic Daily. As well as adding to the lyrics, Coldplay play on the track and Chris plays a news presenter in the accompanying music video. Meanwhile, Chris previously said that he doesn’t think Coldplay will ever beat their BTS collaboration. BTS’s Jin Reveals Why He Initially Struggled To Record “The Astronaut”.
The 45-year-old musician said: “I don’t think we’ll ever be able to match the BTS surprise. That was surprising even for us.” “The journey from the first time it was mentioned – I was just like ‘how could that ever work?’ – to the song itself arriving and me thinking, ‘that could be for BTS’ – to now it feels like the most natural collaboration in the world. It’s an amazing lesson for myself in keeping an open mind all the time, because you just never know what life or music is gonna throw at you.”
