Yesterday, a leak surfaced of The Chainsmokers collaboration with Halsey, “Closer,” letting fans stream the new hit track a day early. Now, the track is officially out, lyric video and all, meaning all of you wanting to follow the rules can now enjoy the infectious tune guilt-free.
The duo has come a long way since their “#Selfie” days, stunning many with their recent overhaul that has resulted in insanely popular tracks like “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Roses.” Their softer, summer-y sounds have won over the hearts of many, and our article yesterday mentioned that “Closer” will undoubtedly be the track of the summer. Well, the accompanying music video does nothing but support that claim, as it features shots of California beaches mixed with scenes of expensive cars and other coastal landscapes. All of this is backed by the upbeat tune that many of us will soon come to know and love, making this music video one of the more quintessential summer pieces out right now.
Check it out below and get familiar, this song isn’t going anywhere.
