The Chainsmokers Awesomely Continue Their Epic EDM Adventure with Coldplay Collab

New “Something Just Like This” Single Hits the Mark on both the Club and Radio Fronts

Go big or go home. That certainly seems to be the current theme for the music of the Chainsmokers these days. Case in point: their latest “Something Just Like This” single that features none other than British rock group Coldplay. Known to dabble in EDM themselves, Coldplay is no stranger to the electronica space over the span of their remarkable career. Look back to the Kraftwerk sample in “Talk” and even more recently the club-friendly “Adventure of a Lifetime” from their 2015 “A Head Full of Dreams” album for starters. So the Chainsmokers and Coldplay are definitely making great bed buddies these days.

“Something Just This” is a perfect winter anthem for the radio waves and dance floors alike. It glistens with the inspired signature alt-rock and uplifting indie-pop vibe of Coldplay fused with the dubstep-laced EDM sound that Chainsmokers have come to be known for. Coldplay lead vocalist Chris Martin sings “I’m not looking for somebody with some superhuman gifts...just something I can turn to...somebody I can miss” on the 2017 song that has already become somewhat of an instant classic just being officially released on February 22. Although the track does hark back to and sounds somewhat like the Chainsmokers’ “Roses”, we’ll give them a pass with the extra unique flair being added with the Coldplay addition.

As the Chainsmokers continue ruling FM radio and festivals alike, anticipation builds for their forthcoming debut “Memories: Do Not Open” album. And it’s no wonder. They have a proven knack for balancing their progressive electronica grooves over slick commercial production with catchy lyrics for good measure. That’s why we definitely do want “something just like this” indeed.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

It's been a long, long time.


This past week, the Jonas Brothers released a song and music video starring their wives (and in Joe's case, fiancee), completely shocking fans given the fact that there was pretty much no prior warning. As rumors are running rampant about their getting back together and a possible tour, now seems like a good time to reflect on their past. Specifically, my favorite songs that they've written. And if the rumors are true...I hope to find new favorites soon.

1. "Inseparable"

2. "Australia"
