The Chainsmokers perform new collaborative single ‘This Feeling’ on ‘Ellen’ [Watch]
The Chainsmokers brought their pop-forward Kelsea Ballerini collaboration “This Feeling” to The Ellen DeGeneres Show for its debut performance. Both The Chainsmokers and Ballerini brought their A-game to the live rendition, sticking the vocals and bringing some headliner energy to the morning show audience. The song is slated to appear on The Chainsmokers’ forthcoming Sick Boy LP.
Ballerini’s country-tinged vocals blend perfectly with drum, guitar, and vocal backing courtesy of The Chainsmokers’ Alex Pall and Andrew Taggert. The performance marks the first time the EDM crossover duo has appeared on Ellen, despite dominating top 40 charts with sinfully catchy singles for the past three years. For Ballerini, the collab has a precedent of sorts with Zedd & fellow country crooner Maren Morris striking crossover gold with “The Middle.” “This Feeling” has already accumulated over eight million Spotify streams and counting since its September 21 release.
