  • Save

The Chainsmokers and Coldplay have teamed up to create an undeniable hit, ‘Something Just Like This’. The song has been released for months now, but it’s still making waves in the music industry. The lyric video for the song was released on YouTube, and within 24 hours, it broke the record for most views for a lyric video, previously held by Justin Bieber’s ‘What Do You Mean?’.

Lyric videos have become popular over the years, and they often serve as a precursor to the official music video for the song. The concept of lyric videos started when fans started uploading homemade videos featuring the lyrics to their favorite songs. These videos gained millions of views, but the artists weren’t benefiting from the revenue generated by these videos.

To combat this, many artists started creating their own lyric videos, often with bigger budgets and more creativity than the homemade versions. The Chainsmokers and Coldplay’s lyric video for ‘Something Just Like This’ is a perfect example of this. The video features animated superhero characters and stunning visuals that perfectly match the upbeat, anthemic sound of the song.

It’s no surprise that the video broke the record for most views in 24 hours for a lyric video. The song is catchy, and the video is visually stunning. It’s a winning combination that has helped the song rack up over 38 million views on YouTube in just one week. Of course, that’s nowhere near the all-time record holder, PSY’s ‘Gentleman’, which surpassed 100 million views in just four days.

Interestingly, ‘Gentleman’ took 52 days to reach the same mark as the Chainsmokers and Coldplay’s hit. But it’s still the most-viewed YouTube video of all time, with an astonishing 2.8 billion views. It’s a testament to the power of a viral hit, and the fact that once a song catches on, it can spread like wildfire.

The Chainsmokers have been on the ascent for years, and their partnership with Coldplay is a smart move that has helped them catapult themselves into the pop stratosphere. The duo has a unique sound that blends electronic beats with catchy hooks and relatable lyrics. They’ve become masters of the pop hit, and their collaborations with other artists have only helped to solidify their place in the music industry.

It’s clear that the Chainsmokers and Coldplay have struck gold with ‘Something Just Like This’. The song is upbeat, catchy, and perfectly suited for the lyric video format. The video itself is a work of art, featuring stunning visuals that perfectly match the superhero theme of the song. It’s no wonder that the video broke records and has continued to rack up millions of views on YouTube.

Overall, the Chainsmokers and Coldplay have created a hit that will go down in history as one of the most memorable collaborations in music history. Their partnership has helped them both reach new heights, and it’s clear that they have a winning formula that resonates with fans around the world. We can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
