Single Review

The Chainsmokers x Coldplay Collab: Sexy New Music Or Try-Hard Much?

By  February 23, 2017

Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers has called their new hit with Coldplay "one of the dopest songs ever written".

After enjoying much success with their smash hits Paris and Closer, the fratboy duo has now released (accidentally by Spotify in fact) their new single, Something Just Like This.

The single's cover art is awfully, unexpectedly cute.

I'm sure I speak for most of us when we first heard the news of the collab - lots of groaning, face-palming, and a "WHY?" 

BUT I WAS WRONG.

But I'm pretty sure, 100% in fact - all fears are unfounded now. The song begins with the familiar ~silky~ vocals from Chris Martin, waxing both lyrical and poetic (what else?) verses:

She said 'Where do you want to go? How much you want to risk?' / I'm not looking for somebody with some superhuman gift, some superhero, some fairytale bliss / Just something I can turn to, somebody I can kiss / I want something just like this

After the introductory bridge, The Chainsmokers then drops the "bass" with their signature synth, making the song very much worthy of looped listen.

Now if you'll excuse me, I am about to make full use of my Spotify subscription.

Spin the new track below:
