The Chainsmokers are potentially collaborating with Linkin Park, Big Sean, and Dua Lipa
The Chainsmokers’ momentum is seemingly infallible, and it seems like everyone wants a piece of the action. Yesterday, the pair teased a song in the works with Coldplay’s Chris Martin — undoubtedly their biggest collaborative union to date. Now, on the heels of their new Billboard cover, the pair have revealed further potential collaborations in the works with some of the biggest artists in the world.
Billboard reports: “Pall doesn’t mind sharing that Linkin Park unexpectedly called him while he was on the toilet; Big Sean blew off his management to confirm a session (so did Dua Lipa); and Weezer circled back after refusing a cameo in The Chainsmokers’ 2016 Coachella set.”
It wouldn’t be the first time Linkin Park has linked up with an EDM act; back in 2013, the legendary alt rock group joined Steve Aoki on “A Light That Never Comes.” Meanwhile, Big Sean has notably worked with Skrillex, while Dua Lipa has been remixed by everyone from Matoma to Miike Snow.
In regards to the Weezer situation, who turned down their offer to join them onstage at Coachella, Pall told Billboard: “I can’t blame somebody for saying no early on, but it depends on how you said no and how you came back to us. If you own it, like, ‘I didn’t see the vision, but it’s clear now and it’s super sick,’ I get that. It feels good when those people are like…” Taggart cuts in, “Thirsty.”
