"Will You Still Care in the Morning When the Magic's Gone?"

After a couple laps around The Chainsmokers new album, I think I'm ready to start declaring favorites. Unsurprisingly it's a track that I immediately gravitated toward due to Jhene Aiko's name being attached to it. Her distinct, sultry vocals have made many an appearance in this hood of the internet. On Wake Up, she plays the star role, alternating between verses and a repeatable hook. To their credit, Alex and Drew did their part to let Jhene shine while providing enough bounce on the beat to get listeners nodding along.

What really stuck with me, though, was the ending of the track. Since when did The Chainsmokers get into screwed and chopped beats?!?! Tip of the cap to Robert Davis and color me intrigued as hell that they'd mix that into their music. There's no doubt there will be a few more posts from Memories...Do Not Open before it's all said and done. At this point, you'd have to make a concerted effort to avoid hearing their new album with all the publicity they're getting these days. Over the past year they've attracted a lot of haters, but I'm proud of how far they've come and I hope they're finding ways to navigate their newfound fame...#MemoriesDoNotOpen
