Chainsmokers Remix Foxes Holding Onto Heaven

When I first caught wind of this remix, it was like a kid going to the zoo for the first time and seeing a giraffe. Like "nuh uh things don't get that big." But yes, in real life sometimes things actually do get THAT big.

Keeping those monumental expectations in mind and knowing full well that there was a very small chance I would like the remix as much as the original, I'd say the remix held it's own. For those of you who haven't heard the original by Foxes, check the BTS clip from the video that is probably a few days away from being released...

The remixed version by The Chainsmokers adds some value in that it's slightly more club-friendly, but the remix wasn't able to harness the unbridled soul of the original. Maybe going deep on the remix could have been a more successful route, but who am I to say being the armchair blogger. The Chainsmokers can do no wrong right now, so keep giving them love because they have an uncanny way of reaching people on a personal level that other artists should take notes on...#HoldingOntoHeaven
