The Chainsmokers released their second single of 2018, and continue their new trend skewing from the sound that led to their momentous rise.
“You Owe Me” is a part of the now two-sided single, Sick Boy…You Owe Me, and it’s the duo’s safest shift into instrumental heavy, post-EDM to date.
The new track sees that the duo’s doubling down on the pop-punk, Twenty One Pilots operative that was explored on “Sick Boy,” but in a form that’s significantly lacking in comparison.
Though the vaguely EDM-reminiscent track is not entirely uninspired, and listeners can relish in its sparse synth lines and subdued guitar injections, “You Owe Me’s” official video — essentially an uber cliche Twilight v. Dexter situation — isn’t doing them any such favors.
Currently touring Europe, The Chainsmokers have continued to experiment with their new “band” sound. At a recent show in Prague, the duo played all of the recent hits including the most recent pop track “Sick Boy”. In addition to the latest hits, they have been experimenting new songs. Most notably, “Everybody Hates Me” (ID). The
One of the world’s greatest pop singer-songwriters seemed to achieve her final form this year by having drunken sex with a muppet in a music video called “Disco Tits.” The song itself is a jam, a poised and minimal dance-floor deconstruction that toggles between spacious staccato piano stabs and synthetic bass throbs that roll with … More »
Canadian producer Shaun Frank has a track record of making music ranging from deep house to pop. His latest release, “Addicted” featuring Violet Days, fits into the latter, making it perfect for radio. Days’ catchy vocals carry the track into an upbeat pop drop with a tropical house flair.
Frank and Days co-wrote the track with the help of The Chainsmokers‘ Drew Taggart, who Frank was on tour with this past summer. He is now on tour with Krewella, and fans can see him on one of the remaining tour dates below.

Ever since The Chainsmokers became the face of the men’s fall campaign for Tommy Hilfiger, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers have become a bit more stylish. To commemorate their new fashion careers, The Chainsmokers teamed up with Fuckjerry and Krispshorts to pull off a reality stunt at the 5th avenue store. Tommy
The Chainsmokers dropped their debut LP a few months ago. It received a critically mixed response but hit the top of the charts in several countries. There was no doubt that The Chainsmokers made a serious statement with their debut album. We expected the guys to focus on their world tour and get some rest
Curated by Jason Derulo, Halsey, and Anthony Saleh, Forbes has just released their picks of the “30 Under 30” of music for 2017. The list includes people of all professions in the music industry, from musicians, to managers, and industry playmakers alike.
Gallant is their standout selection as the future of R&B, and we can’t deny he’s only just getting started despite already reaching such international success. Additionally, Michael George, the manager who discovered Martin Garrix, is on the list, as are both of Halsey’s managers, Jason Aron and Anthony Li.
Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers is another feature, though the duo’s other half, Alex Pall, doesn’t make the cut (Pall is 31-years-old). Collaborator Daya is also featured on the list, along with Desiigner, and Lil Yachty for their infectious, chart-topping singles. And of course Twenty One Pilots’ Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph are both included.
No one likes being the victim of a hack, obviously. It’s a vicious invasion of privacy that makes you feel needlessly vulnerable, and makes you fear for the safety of other personal and sensitive information online. And depending on where you’re hacked – bank account, social media, etc. – the repercussions could be deep.
For Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers, this hack has sent his followers into a frenzy. Vicious attacks against collaborator Halsey, calling her “whore” and “slut” and other worse phrases, were thrown around with wanton disregard. Screenshots of a faked Snapchat conversation between Halsey and Diplo were also shared, seemingly showing the two of them agreeing to have sex at a later time. All these tweets have since been deleted.
While we’re not questioning that Drew was hacked, it’s crazy to think that he was hacked 18 minutes prior, got his account back, deleted the old tweets, and then was hacked again. Either he’s choosing some really easy passwords, or something else is going on.
Of course, the irony of the situation is that this was his most recently favorited tweet.
