Based on the latest calculations of Chart Data, Coldplay‘s unforgettable song ‘Fix You‘ has made its first great comeback since its release in 2005, and the credit for the song‘s latest success is attributed to a band that deeply shocked the rock community.
As you probably know, ‘Fix You’ was written by all four band members and was released on September 5, 2005, as the second single from ‘X&Y.’ The song came to be known as one of Coldplay’s best-selling songs and it reached No. 4 on the UK Singles Chart. The video clip was also highly appreciated by fans and critics as it paid tribute to the victims of the 7 July 2005 London bombings.
Although the song is still enjoyed by millions all around the world, it’s been a long time since it was seen on the music charts. However, based on the latest news, ‘Fix You’ has now re-entered the Top 200 on US iTunes. The reason why this song has made it back to the headlines is an unexpected one that highly shocked Coldplay fans.
As you may have heard, there is a South Korean boy band called BTS or Bangtan Boys, which consists of seven members, and the band debuted in 2013. They have achieved worldwide fame and have a great fan base from all around the world. Just a couple of days ago they were guests at MTV UK Unplugged where they performed a cover of ‘Fix You.’
After that performance was uploaded to numerous streaming platforms, millions of BTS fans rushed to listen to the song’s original version by Coldplay which caused an increase in the numbers. Rock fans were shocked to see that BTS has such a huge fanbase and that their cover of ‘Fix You’ actually boosted the popularity of an already iconic song.
Here’s what Chart Data said in their recent tweet:
“Coldplay’s ‘Fix You’ has re-entered the top 200 on US iTunes.”
