The Chainsmokers Collaborate With Halsey To Give Us "Closer"

What happens when you combine halsey and The Chainsmokers? A millennial anthem that celebrates youth and heartbreak.

The Chainsmokers released a new song, which would be their collaboration with singer/songwriter Halsey! Halsey along with The Chainsmokers are new, fresh faces to the music industry. They’ve both individually brought very unique music up to the radio surface such as a little bit of angsty indie pop from Halsey, to the upbeat electro-pop that The Chainsmokers bring to the table. When you bring these two things together it results in the vibe consisting of teenage angst, pop, and dance- something every teenager can relate and want to dance to. Both artists, though very new, still have gotten radio play and plenty of exposure creating a song that has the potential for an amazing amount of hype.

This song “closer” has been described on as “a millennial romance anthem that celebrates youth and heartbreak” which I couldn't agree with more. With lyrics like “Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you/ I drink too much and that’s an issue but I’m okay” describing a drinking problem following the breakup, and “you look as good as the day that i met you/ i forget the reason that i left you, I was insane”. These are all good examples of dysfunctional breakups that teenagers often go through and definitely highlights the youth and heartbreak with a bit of angst to it. The lyrics definitely have a teenage/rebellious vibe to them, especially when talking about moving to a new city and dropping contact with said person. This song is definitely something many teens can relate to because I'm sure many people have seen their ex at another point in life and really missed them to the point you actually question why they broke up in the first place.

As for the overall sound of the song, it is something that I think many people could enjoy and dance to! It has the male voice of the chainsmokers with a few verses from Halsey as well. This song brings indie pop and electronic pop together which definitely gives off a great party feeling to it. It has a very upbeat party vibe sound in the backdrop of the vocals, creating a sound that's very electronic and fun, with a beat drop kind of like the beats in EDM but less intense. When Halsey’s vocals are introduced it brings a sweet change of tone with angst in her lyrics and her high feminine singing voice. Once her vocals are introduced she starts to harmonize with the voice of The Chainsmokers which just sounds aesthetically pleasing to the ear because harmonizing a low and high pitched vocals sounds very good. Bringing their two completely different but beautiful voices together, creates something so unique that it will catch the attention of millions, Im sure.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.
