Move over, Halsey! The Chainsmokers have a brand new collaboration in the works and it involves Coldplay’s Chris Martin. If the previews of this new song are any indication, this track is going to be huge! Click to listen.
The two previews, shared on Sept. 14, only add up to 16 seconds, but that’s enough to give fans of The Chainsmokers (Drew Taggart, 26, and Alex Pall, 31) reason to be excited. Though Chris Martin, 39, is nowhere near as sexy as Halsey, the 21-year-old singer featured on the Chainsmokers’ “Closer,” the Coldplay frontman’s voice sounds like a perfect match with the duo.
The videos hint that this is a “melodic house production,” per Dancing Astronaut. The question is now – is this a Chris Martin solo jam? Is this the next big Chainsmokers song? Or will the rest of Coldplay come in and jam with these duo? There aren’t any details at the moment, so fans will have to eagerly wait until this new song drops.
Can this unnamed collaboration be bigger than “Closer?” The Chainsmokers hit has dominated the Billboard Hot 100. It also was on top of the Digital Songs chart for more than a month and the number 1 song on the Streaming Songs chars for four straight weeks. Even a month after its release, it sold 199,000 downloads, per Billboard.
While the song is incredibly catchy (seriously, try to get it out of your head once it gets stuck in there) maybe the real reason behind the track’s popularity is the smoking hot performance at the MTV VMAs? The Chainsmokers reunited with Halsey during the Aug. 28 broadcast for probably the sexiest moment of the night.
With Drew and Halsey running their hands all over each others bodies, it seemed like the two young pop stars were about to make out on stage! Though they didn’t kiss, it was still incredibly hot. It’s safe to say that Drew and Chris Martin won’t have similar chemistry when this new collaboration is unleashed. Still, from the sounds of it, it’s going to be a great song!
