The Chainsmokers Have a ‘Takeaway’ [WICKED OR WHACK?]
If you have yet to experience The Chainsmokers live, then you are missing out on an out-of-body experience.
No, it's not what you think. I recently went to see them live and saw people of all ages and races there, all dancing and living their best lives.
The energy that came from the stage and the audience was electric; you couldn't help but move. They have so many songs and collaborations that I couldn't help but wonder if there was going to be any special appearances. There weren't, but they didn't need one – although they did bring out 5SOS for their song together, and then played a new song featuring another one of their opening acts, Lennon Stella. She has an airy voice that fits perfectly with The Chainsmokers' production formula.
When I heard this song live, I thought it reminded me of "Closer," the song that made The Chainsmokers.
In case you missed me playing it as your "Wicked or Whack?" song, here it is:
You may have noticed there was a third feature on the song. Illenium is a new up-and-coming producer that has been making waves overseas and starting to break into the United States.
It may be a little electronic and take a few listens before it grows on you. It did for me and I love dance music. But it's not me that has to decide what gets added to our playlist; time to tell us, is this song wicked good or totally whack?
