The highly anticipated solo single, ‘The Astronaut’ has finally landed and within two hours, the MV has crossed 3 million views on YouTube. The track is said to be inspired by a ‘powerful’ conversation Jin had with Chris Martin.

The soft, steady, and soothing vocals of BTS’s Jin and Coldplay’s cosmic music fit like a glove. Co-written by Jin and Coldplay and produced by Kygo and Bill Rahko, “The Astronaut” is a bittersweet treat from BTS’s Jin.

The teaser showed a sad Jin devoid of emotions, sitting in a desolate landscape alone, in front of a burning spaceship. Today, on 28th October, the story became clear after the release of ‘The Astronaut’ MV. 

“You and me an unending history”, the opening verse of this soul-soothing track, narrates the entire theme of this MV. Captivating harmony between the calming sound of acoustic guitar and the gradual build-up of synth sound builds up this pop-rock song.

The MV is about a being from outer space navigating the Earth. During his journey, he comprehends the meaning of togetherness, and “family”.  The love and joy that the solitary figure experienced on Earth made him no longer wish to go back. 

In the beginning, Jin is shown as a solitary being wearing a dark suit. As he learns how to spread love, and what it means to be loved by someone, he sheds that aura of solemnity. The MV beautifully ends with Jin filling the crosswords with the word ‘family’ and looking right into the screen breaking the fourth wall.

The MV ends with a powerful message; “When I’m with you there is no one else I get heaven to myself.”

The 5-minute music video captured the emotions that the song was trying to convey. Coldplay captured this sentimental emotion in an upbeat, pop-rock song coordinating with the raw emotions presented by Jin. “The Astronaut” brought forth Mr. Worldwide Handsome’s acting skills. The concept, cinematography, and color schemes are quite promising in this music video.

The entire band of Coldplay, Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Will Champion, Phil Harvey, and Jonny Buckland are all in ‘The Astronaut’. The heart-warming friendship between Jin and Coldplay can also be felt in the track, as Chis Martin smoothly and softly harmonizes with Jin on a few notes.

All of Jin’s solos carry a powerful message. Solos like ‘Tonight,’ ‘Abyss,’ and ‘Super Tuna’ showcase Jin’s heavenly voice in the ballads plus a message for all.

‘The Astronaut’ is his gift to the beloved ARMY. The eldest member of BTS is about to go for mandatory Military service.
‘The Astronaut’ is the second collaboration between BTS and Coldplay after ‘My Universe,’ released in September last year. Within a few hours of the release of “The Astronaut” MV, Jin will take up a massive state during Coldplay’s concert in Argentina, giving the debut performant of the track.
