The Chainsmokers rolled out a new single called Sick Boy. According to Drew Taggart, they had not released any songs for about nine months, which is unusual. According to Drew Taggart, the song Sick Boy is first a new phase for them. As songwriters and singers, they have grown up. According to Drew Taggart, he has the feeling that their music is a representation of their generation, especially when it comes to interacting with different people.
Their music, according to Drew Taggart always says what is happening in their lives and the environment and the world where they live. Sick Boy song and lyrics are very dark. According to Drew Taggart, he is angry and aggravated because people relate to them from what others write and say about them. The things that are written are not really who they are as a person. They channel the focus of their frustrations and reaction to the criticism they experience, in their music. The Chainsmokers think about the way they interact with social media and the world around them.
Originally Pall and DJ Rhett Bixler were a part of the Chainsmokers. In 2012, they re-grouped as an EDM DJ duo managed by Adam Alpert. In 2012, they worked closely with Priyanka Chopra on the song called “Erase” and “The Rookie” in 2013.
