After absolutely exploding in popularity thanks to their hit single #SELFIE, NYC DJ duo The Chainsmokers (Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall) proved that they were more than just a one hit wonder with their next song, Kanye. Released earlier this month, the track has been receiving generally positive reviews and is only helping to build their popularity and fame.
Now, just several weeks after premiering the tune, the boys have dropped the official music video to accompany it. According to Drew and Alex, the video is a special one as it encourages people to be themselves and do what makes them happy. Check out what they had to say below:
“Kanye is a special video for us in that it represents the ideal that every person should live their life the way they want to,” the boys said. Like Yeezy, do what you believe and makes you happy and be confident regardless of what anyone else thinks. We hope the video conveys just that, the message of self-assurance and living out life on your own terms…and of course the story, our story, starts where #SELFIE left off.”
I’m not sure that I completely get that message from watching the video, but I’m definitely a fan of the song and of The Chainsmokers in general, and I dig what they’re going for with this track.
