The Chainsmokers and Coldplay debuted their new single live at the BRIT Awards. The single, ‘Something Just Like This’, is set to be released on 24 March, before the release of The Chainsmokers’ highly anticipated (hopefully) debut album Memories… Do Not Open, which is expected to be out on 7 April.
Listen to the song here:
As expected of both acts, the song features the usual over recapitulated lyrics and ever so indistinguishable beats. ‘Something Just Like This’, honestly, sounds exactly like something just like this. Have The Chainsmokers subconsciously plagiarised their own music or have they run out of ideas?
And it seems like even die-hard Coldplay fans are not buying it either:
why did coldplay do a song with the chainsmokers i'm so embarrassed for them that it physically hurts

The Coldplay and Chainsmokers song is worse than Donald Trump being president

This particular fan seems to be a little too passive aggressive:
We may not know Spanish but we see the words ‘Coldplay’ and ‘Chainsmokers’ associated with the word ‘horrible’, which makes sense:
que horrible la nueva canción de coldplay y the chainsmokers pero yo a coldplay le perdono hasta los cachos

And this particular fan who seem to have it all figured out:
Play that new Coldplay & Chainsmokers song and white people will magically appear wherever you are
