Oliver Heldens has been in his fair share of Twitter spats recently, most notably a hilariously nonsensical argument with Diplo over Major Lazer’s remix of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You.”
Though this time isn’t really a “beef,” it certainly has the potential to be. Heldens started off by offering some criticism against The Chainsmokers’ newest collaboration with Coldplay, “Something Just Like This,” saying, “imo I’ve heard waaay[sic] better stuff” by either artist. We also remarked that the song should have been better, considering who was involved, and the similarity to “Roses” was too close.
He then actually went on to say that he “finally” understood the hype around Marshmello, adding that it’s “very different,” blending the Flume cool wave with “happy EDM.” We can say he pretty much hit the nail on the head with that one, as Marshmello’s music definitely caters to a set of fans that love future bass (but aren’t all about sound design) and just want to have fun at shows.
He leaves off with a comment on top melodies, expressing dissatisfaction with those that don’t really have anything to say. “When 1 easy melody brings different/controversy emotions, that’s the best imo,” he tweeted.
Apparently, a bunch of fans called him a “savage” for these tweets, but he doesn’t see the fuss.
“I’m not hating, just analyzing.”
