Before I start – if you want to listen to the song while you read:
Last week The Chainsmokers and Coldplay came out with a new single: Something Just Like This.
Vocally I think the song is great, and I’m not just saying this as a Coldplay fan. The rhythms that go with the vocals are really catchy, and the lyrics are interesting without being too vague.
I think The Chainsmokers did a great job with the first verse of the song, I liked the beats going along with Chris Martin’s slow, rhythmic part of the song. However, once the song picks up and the chorus comes I immediately hear every other popular Chainsmokers song (Roses, Closer).
Honestly, with the amount of exposure they knew they would get from this song I’m disappointed The Chainsmokers couldn’t come up with a more interesting beat. I hope I’m wrong when I say that they won’t last long if they keep using the same beats for all of their hits. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great beat – but it gets old.
Overall I still enjoy the song, and I would definitely recommend listening to it.
