Before I begin, let me apologize if you get this song stuck in your head. The first time I heard it I hated it because it was so pervasive, but definitely learned to love it.
The Chainsmokers are an American DJ duo who made it mainstream with this song and it was the first one that I heard from them. They are much more famous today with their hit “Closer” which made it to the number one hit by making the top 5 singles on the Billboard charts. While “Closer” is a great song that we’ll take a look at later I wanted to keep the upbeat mood by posting “#Selfie” which doesn’t have much in lyrics, but shows the “me” culture of today with a mocking tone.
So instead of taking a ‘selfie’ today take some pictures of the people around you as they have just a big of an impact as you do.
Honestly, “#Selfie” is kind of a phenomenon for us. We made it and thought it was funny and put it out as an edit. Then Dim Mak wanted to buy it, and they bought it from us and put it out officially and we made a video for it. This was all just because we thought it was fun. And then the song just kind of took on a life of its own. Which is honestly really great because it’s brought in a new audience of people that listen to music that we’ve made that we’re more passionate about.
