The Chainsmokers are taking some heat for their new single with Coldplay, “Something Just Like This.” Mainly because we’ve heard something almost just like this before…


Those who have listened to “Roses” may have noticed the similarities already. But, here are Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers to discuss.

(NOTE: If it wasn’t clear to anyone, these people aren’t really The Chainsmokers. This is supposed to be funny.)

All that aside, the lyric video for “Something Just Like This” still broke the all-time YouTube viewing record and sits pretty at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart, just above “Paris” at #2 and “Closer” at #3.

Now that you’ve heard the tracks played back-to-back, what do you think? Too similar or nah?
