"Somebody I Can Kiss, I Want Something Just Like This"

A few months back, Alex and Drew promised a Coldplay collabo. Today that promise finally came to fruition with the release of Something Just Like This. Given the styles of both groups, there isn't anything you're going to be surprised by when you press play below. You're getting the stalwart vocals of Chris Martin over a mellow Chainsmokers build up and gentle drop. Sure, there's a few guitar riffs mixes in, which pushes the boundaries of what you'd normally get from The Chainsmokers, but it all leads to what you'd expect from both sides of the equation.

Impressive collaboration aside, I did a double take today when I learned that The Chainsmokers upcoming album, Memories Do Not Open, is going to be filled with completely new songs. All the singles leading up to the album were just that...they were singles. My knee jerk reaction to that was, "wow that's risky, how in the hell are they going to be able to do better than their most recent singles?" Hell, they've been doubted all the way to the top, so who am I to question whether they can do it. At this point I'm not dumb enough to bet that their win streak won't continue, so I'm going to stay optimistic as new gems like the one below slowly unearth themselves...#SomethingJustLikeThis
