The Chainsmokers say: “This song is about doing you, living life how you want to live it…”
The Chainsmokers have followed up their catchy track ‘#SELFIE‘, with a new song called KANYE.
The track, which is all about doing whatever you want, features the chorus:
“I wanna be like Kanye, I’ll be the King of me always/ Do what I want I’ll have it my way/ All day like Kanye..”
The Chainsmokers, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart say it isn’t about Kanye West though:
“This isn’t about him, or anything he has done, LETS BE VERY CLEAR ABOUT THAT!” they explained on their Soundcloud page.
“It’s about taking what Kanye idealistically represents and turning his name into an adjective. This song is about doing you, living life how you want to live it and not giving a f**k what anyone else thinks. Its about owning your s**t and being happy with your life, no matter the circumstances, rich or poor, skinny or fat, young or old its about exuding confidence… “
‘KANYE’ features vocals from LA indie-pop duo duo Siren.
