Once again, The Chainsmokers make the news after a recent interview with Alex Pall. After only two years, the DJ/Producer Duo has become one of the most successful in the world. Since the release of their top 10 song Roses in 2015, they have consistently proven to be the experts of the Pop EDM world. They have won 24 awards at several awards ceremonies, including a Grammy in 2017 for Best Dance Recording.

After not releasing anything new in the 8 months between the lyric video release of Young in June of 2017, The Chainsmokers have come back with a new sound that is darker and more of a reflection on society than ever before, with their new song Sick Boy. It’s lyrics about the effect of social media on their lives is chilling, but their openness about who they are is refreshing.

If you have never heard of The Chainsmokers, or haven’t closely followed them, they first broke into the limelight with the song Roses two years ago. A year later, they released Dont Let Me Down, which hit number 3 in the US. That same year, they released the #1 hit song Closer, showing the world that they are the hit-makers.

This has all culminated to their new album, which currently has no release date. But so far, the duo has released four songs from the album which have gotten over a quarter billion views together in less than 5 months. Sick Boy alone has gotten 175 million views, and speaks to the younger generation, who have become trapped in a social media run world. The song speaks truth about how narcissistic and negative we have become in our life hiding behind a screen, and is a refreshing breath of relief among songs that beg for more fame, or that complain about how hard it is to be rich and popular. The Chainsmokers have hit a balance between upbeat dance songs, and a close look at society, and plan to develop this sound further in their upcoming album.

Recently when Donald Trump was pushed on some more difficult issues, he chose to attack and not back down. This time he went right after the war record of Senator John McCain, questioning the validity of the war veterans record. John McCain wants to respond to Trump, and he simply says that he will not expect an apology from Mr. Trump after the comments that were made.

Trump has really been distancing himself lately, after going on a week-long rampage about Mexican illegals killing, Lime Crime products, raping, and destroying the United States. Now he gets questioned about political issues and has little concern about the record of a war veteran and how he feels about it. Regardless what the truth of the matter, Trump is beginning to get a reputation this campaign as more of a bully that a negotiator.

What has many people concerned is what is going to happen if elected president and Trump does this to a leader of another country. The United States will basically alienate itself from every ally in the world very quickly. Trump could take a lesson from the reaction of Senator John McCain. Rather than return the insults or question the validity of Trumps political experience, McCain simply said that Trump did not owe him any apology, and left the story at that. That is how a leader handles a tough situation quickly.
