The Chainsmokers & Coldplay – Something Just Like This

Despite being recently pegged as the “Nickelback of EDM,” a certain death sentence for most artists, The Chainsmokers are having a pretty good 2017 so far. Winning a Grammy for the first time after a string of international hits certainly helps. And the duo shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon as they gear up for the release of their debut album Memories…Do Not Open, slated for release this coming April 7, 2017.

Just yesterday they dropped “Something Just Like This” featuring the rather accomplished Coldplay, one of their biggest collaborations to date. But perhaps Matt Miller of Esquire was on to something with his article, because this latest single comes off as somewhat uninspired to anyone that’s heard their previous smash “Roses.”

Don’t get me wrong, this new song is a fine piece of stand-alone electroni-pop thanks to a soaring topline and Chris Martin’s range. It’s just that borrowing the drop from your own material seems lazy considering the capable production prowess Drew and Alex have shown before. Mixed feelings aside, you should judge for yourself with a listen down below. And make sure you pre-order Memories…Do Not Open while you’re at it!

  1. Personally, I enjoyed the song, and to collaborate with someone like Chris Martin is amazing, but I do hear some similarities of what they make. Overall, I can’t hate because it makes me dance otherwise. 🙂

    Do you have any favorite Chainsmokers songs?
