The Chainsmokers scored a major hit earlier this year when they released their single “Don’t Let Me Down,” with singer Daya, which would go on to become their first song to make it to the top five position on the US charts. In fact, the last year has seen the duo taking the radio by storm with a number of charting singles, like the aforementioned one, that have proven their success as a dance/pop crossover act.
This week on Good Morning America, The Chainsmokers performed their single with Daya, delivering a unique live rendition of the song on National TV. Alex Pall plays the familiar opening melodies on a pair of keyboards while Drew Taggart dons an electric guitar. Live drums and saxophone are included in the performance as well, led by Daya’s characteristic vocals.
It’s always interesting to hear electronic tracks transposed into the performance setting, and The Chainsmokers demonstrate just how versatile their sound is with the rendition. Their appearance on Good Morning America marks a milestone for the dance music community as well, showing just how far this duo has come in a few short years.
