New Year, New Music
By January 17, The Chainsmokers had already released a new single for their loyal fans called “sick boy”. This new tune hails from the dance rock genre and it is a page out of their darker catalog of music. Sick Boy is about the effect of society’s emphasis on social media exposure to our identity. Dim lighting and fire help set the stage for Sick Boy’s music video, which consists of the DJ Duo walking through a creepy glow in the dark house and being defined by society. What’s interesting about The Chainsmokers is they take full responsibility for the mayhem caused by their stardom. They always say that their lives now are by design and that they knew what they were signing up for.
Even More Hit Singles
The second single from The Chainsmokers called “You Owe Me” hit the top of the charts on the new billboard 100 dance list. The video soared to millions of views as soon as it was released. In March they released their third single “Everybody Hates Me” but they didn’t release the video until early April. In the meantime, their lyrics were cool enough to evoke a fan tattoo of a line from the song on his arm. This dynamic duo has such a major following. They are even one of the first artists to reach 1 billion streams on multiple songs in Spotify.
