They Don’t Let Me Down
About 5 years ago, The Chainsmokers were the first to use a hashtag and the word “selfie” in a song. I hated the song then, but their most recent single, luckily, is so far removed from that.
Just a year into their debut album, they are sure to be heading for the charts with “Don’t Let Me Down”, for which they’ve teamed up with upcoming star, Daya.
For some countries, this will be her second single, following up the success she had with “Hide Away”. It is sure to push her album as well.
Daya is an interesting new artist. One of my music teachers once said that artists should never wear jeans: “You have to always make sure you stand out from the crowd”. Daya is looking like the girl next door in some of the pictures, especially compared to all the female artists out there right now. And she makes no secret of being driven by something other than expensive clothes and girlie stuff. Kind of like Lorde, she’s a bit of an anti-popstar.
