News about an upcoming collaboration between The Chainsmokers and Chris Martin of Coldplay fame has only just been making the rounds on the internet, but the duo are already back at it to reveal some more major projects with A-list talents.
Speaking with Billboard during their cover story with the publication, The Chainsmokers revealed they will potentially be releasing singles with major acts like Linkin Park, Big Sean and Weezer. In his usually humorous fashion, Pall admits that he fielded a call from Linkin Park while on the toilet, while Weezer was forced to slink back with their tail between their legs after turning down an offer to join the duo on stage at Coachella earlier in the year, a distinction that eventually went to Third Eye Blind.
The Chainsmokers took the opportunity to gloat about Weezer’s turnaround, with Pall stating, “I can’t blame somebody for saying no early on, but it depends on how you said no and how you came back to us. If you own it, like, ‘I didn’t see the vision, but it’s clear now and it’s super sick,’ I get that. It feels good when those people are like…” before Drew cuts in with “Thirsty.”
If there was any remnant of doubt left that The Chainsmokers are one of the hottest music acts around, their new interview blows it out of the water. With so many major collaborations in the works, you can bet that we’ll be keeping a keen eye on the duo in the months to come.
