You may know The Chainsmokers because of their oh so innovative and popular “#Selfie” song. They are back with a track somewhat dedicated to the king of arrogance and all things Paris, Mr. Kanye West. Being one of the most talked about people in the world, Kanye is not a bad person to focus a song around. Kanye is my favorite artist so of course I had to give this a listen.
I love how chill the vibe of this song is and Siren’s vocals are so perfect. The lyrics make it powerful just like Kanye’s personality demanding to “be like Kanye.” The Chainsmokers have made it clear that this is not a song about Mr. West himself but what he idealistically represents and turning his name into an adjective. Being like Kanye is not taking anyone’s shit and making your own self happy. Either way I love the concept. This is a song that I will listen to every time I need that extra motivation to be fabulous and “the king of me.” Get cocky and vibe out to “Kanye.”
