Both The Chainsmokers and Halsey have dominated mainstream music this year with the duo's hit songs "Roses" and Don't Let Me Down," and Halsey's standout album Badlands, so it only makes sense that the next step is a collaboration. The two artists joined forces for their new single "Closer," a perfect light bop. The track was accidentally leaked yesterday but officially released at midnight with a wide reception. An accompanying lyric video created by filmmaker Rory Kramer dropped early this morning in conjunction with the song and has racked up almost 250,000 views in just a few short hours.

Both the song and the video are the ultimate summer jam with a perfect balance of beach vibes and nostalgia, but The Chainsmokers made it clear that "Closer" is not a love song. The duo's message is both relatable and brutally honest, which makes us love the song even more. The song is available for streaming on Spotify and can be purchased on iTunes.
