"I Wanna Be Like Kanye"

Well, I can say with confidence that I did not expect The Chainsmokers' new single to be a playful sing along. Led by Siren's vocals, the track starts off on a soft note, as if to say, "I dare you to expect what's coming next." What follows is a snappy bounce beat that gradually increases in tempo leading to a drop. Somewhere hidden in all of the lyrics, you can feel the unbridled sarcasm of Alex and Drew bubbling underneath the surface.

The real question is whether The Chainsmokers are going to catch hell for their increasingly poppy sound. My rebuttal to that is, what do you expect? They signed a seven figure major label deal and need to start churning out singles that a lot of people are going to find repeatable and catchy. It's a fun, carefree track that will find a way to earworm it's way into your thoughts. Word has it on the streets that the track just landed your favorite digital music mall at few minutes ago at midnight, so feel free and cop it here, here, here or here...#BeLike
