The Chainsmokers: From #Selfie to Sick Boy

It established The Chainsmokers as a force to be reckoned with, and this year, they are back to prove that they are here to stay.

Their newest single, “Sick Boy”, a dance-pop track, goes into serious themes beyond love and dancing. While the title suggests it may be about a child with illness, it’s actually about the dependence on social media.

A sample from the song:

“I’m from the east side of America

Where we choose pride over character

And we can pick sides, but this is us, this is us, this is

I live on the west side of America

Where they spin lies into fairy dust

And we can pick sides, but this is us, this is us, this is”

Social media has become part of our everyday lives, and it consumes almost all of our days when we aren’t working. The amount of likes and retweets that we receive are what is most important to us, but does it truly matter? That’s what makes this song so unique and magical. The targeted audience for their music is primarily young adults, which is perfect for the song’s meaning. This form of purposeful pop music” has become more and more popular, and rightfully so. Incorporating meaningful lyrics alongside catchy melodies helps us become more self-aware while enjoying great music.
