The Chain Smokers are just two years old in the music industry but what they have done is immense. They have received many awards within a short span of time from their hit songs. They started back in 2015 with their song “Roses” which earned them a spot among the Top 10. The production of their magnificent work can be attributed to the fact that they not only produce but also sing in their productions.
The Chain Smokers reached their peak after winning the Grammy’s with the song “Don’t Let Me Down,” which also brought Daya to the limelight. The group has also been able to achieve the feat of dominating the billboard charts having a twelve-week streak on top of the table. Such success with just two years can bring about demand from fans seeking more from the duo. The Chain Smokers have been on their toes producing their latest single “Sick Boy” which has taken the industry by surprise due to the message conveyed.
“Sick Boy” unlike the previous music by the duo talks about the ills of the society. The society has taken the role of the judge and jury prosecuting certain individuals without necessarily getting to know their personalities. This has a long-term effect on the whole community in general as people are discriminated. Social media has made it worse as people have a platform to air out their views without having consequences.
Frustration, anger, and concern were among the feelings that the Chain smokers had when they were coming up with the song. The pair has gained experience in the industry that will be helpful as they take another turn in their music career. The song “Sick Boy” is just the first step into the new path.
“Sick Boy” is aimed to the society that has been dramatically affected by social media with people having a great concern to what they post out to the world to see. This path can be considered to be darker as it may spark various reactions from the fan base but it may also help those that are dealing with the current society.
