After taking a bit of a break from releasing new albums and singles The Chainsmokers released a new song on January 17, 2018, called “Sick Boy”. This song represents a change of pace for this dance duo as it is quite a bit darker than the music which preceded it. It has been described as a feisty dance song and it quickly found success. It is a song that is about how people often have an identity crisis nowadays between who they really are what they present on social media.
When asked about this new song, Alex Pall said that the song is narcissism and trying to get attention online. He says this is by and large a self-inflicted wound to have a big social media presence but on the other hand it’s how people communicate nowadays so it is a pretty necessary thing. Both Alex Pall and Drew Taggart wrote this song along with two other people. The first was their keyboard player, Tony Ann, and the other person was Emily Warren who has written many songs over the course of her career.
In addition to being heard on the radio and streaming services, “Sick Boy” also has a music video out which is available on YouTube. The video starts out with flares of fire piercing through a dimly lit environment. The video also features creature textures which have been placed on the duo that make up The Chainsmokers as they journey through a haunted house. The video doesn’t hit you over the head with what the song is about, though, and the lyrics are not overwhelmed by the visual imagery. The video has amassed over 136 million views.
Following up on “Sick Boy” pretty quickly, The Chainsmokers released “You Owe Me” in February. This song hit number four on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. In its first month the accompanying video to this song had 34 million views. The song they released in March is a single called “Everybody Hates Me”. They didn’t release a video for this song but the audio-only YouTube video hit nine million views in its first month of being online.
