The Chainsmokers ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ receives a hip hop cover from SIDIZEN KING
While The Chainsmokers continue to roar with the success of “Closer,” their previous works are becoming emblematic — namely, the predecessor to the Halsey collaboration. “Don’t Let Me Down” is swinging upwards as revived through new genres; first towards nostalgic R&B from Usher, and most recently pushed into hip-hop territory from SIDIZEN KING.
Spearheading his own original electro-rap movement, off his summertime hit “One Day,” SIDIZEN KING returns with another claim, giving The Chainsmoker’s double-plat smash a complete makeover. The rapper’s cover of “Don’t Let Me Down” is dressed with all new production from casualkimono, a young behind-the-boards talent who spent time learning his trade from Max Martin. Lush elements keep the youth-dance aesthetic in place while hip-hop takes form thanks to Sid’s flow and some inventive sampling.
