The Chainsmokers release New Music Video for Kanye

The Chainsmokers' “Kanye” first premiered yesterday on Yahoo! Music, and its cinematic narrative picks up where the music video for the duo’s platinum-selling single “#SELFIE” left off. However, this time around, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall tell an inspirational and invigorating Cinderella story of embracing who you are and owning it. The only proper verb for that action is “Kanye”. Moreover, notable influencers ranging from Mahogany Lox to Romeo Lacoste and Teala Dunn make spirited cameos in the video, making it a true event for the New York electronic dance music upstarts.

BuzzFeed first premiered “Kanye” last month, and it immediately drew a flurry of positive critical and fan reactions in addition to features from People Magazine, Entertainment Tonight, and more. MTV News claimed, “Stakes were high for whatever Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart  released to follow their first massive and ubiquitous hit, and ‘Kanye’ holds up,”Billboard described it as “an unexpectedly inspirational ode to following your own path and living life on your own tours,” and Yahoo! News said, “At the heart of the release is a message that encourages fans to take control of self-identity.”

As soon as “Kanye” dropped, the song became the “Most Viral Track” on Spotify in the United States and worldwide.

Recently, THE CHAINSMOKERS launched their live radio show on SiriusXM’s Electric Area—"Nice Hair with THE CHAINSMOKERS". The show is unlike anything else on the air. The guys speak candidly on the lifestyle of touring international EDM superstars, allowing listeners a vignette behind the curtain. Nothing is held back, and their wild antics and unpredictable personalities are on full display!

It’s been a landmark year for THE CHAINSMOKERS. MTV recently crowned the group an “Artist to Watch”. “#SELFIE” was officially certified platinum by the RIAA for digital sales in excess of 1,000,000. The song also soared to #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart within merely five weeks and reached the Top 5 on iTunes in over 43 countries. “#SELFIE” is the #6 video on YouTube's "Top Music Videos of 2014". Furthermore, it garnered a nomination for "Choice EDM Song" at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards and the guys have been receiving tremendous support for DJ Mag's "Top 100 DJs" [vote here!]

THE CHAINSMOKERS puff out a distinct hybrid of indie, progressive house, and pop music that proves utterly infectious and intoxicating. It's unlike anything out there, and the world is taking notice in a big way. Already, the pair has been supported by Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki, Pete Tong, Afrojack, Tiësto, W&W, and more, as well as receiving shout outs from the likes of Rolling Stone. In addition, they've been tapped for remixes by everybody from Phoenix, Ellie Goulding, and The Wanted to The Killers and Icona Pop. Their remixes continually shoot to #1 on the HypeM—with 24 in total topping the chart. In addition, their original songs always land on Beatport's top charts, solidifying their status as contenders in the genre. The duo is represented by Adam Alpert.  DIM MAK/REPUBLIC RECORDS is excited for what's to come from this American dream team.
