The Chainsmokers want you to #BELIKE ‘Kanye’ on their follow up to ‘#SELFIE’
After 2+ years playing New York’s hottest nightclubs, The Chainsmokers tapped into pop culture’s main line with “#SELFIE,” a tongue-in-cheek, self-aware ode to the all the bottle rats that undoubtedly yelled along to its spoken-word vocal and turned the club track into a worldwide phenomena. From there the pair proved their worth through a series of Hype Machine-topping remixes, showcasing the more serious side of their production acumen. With both bases covered, Alex and Drew return to original production duties for their next pop culture anthem, “Kanye.” A track more about self empowerment than Yeezus himself, the New York duo enlist the help of Siren, a little known vocalist whose top line is about to turn this pop trap production into the pair’s next radio hit.
When it comes to catchy club cuts, Alex and Drew are unmatched in their ability to tap the 20-something psyche.
