It's a wisful electropop song about a troubled young couple.
The Chainsmokers take it down a notch on “Paris,” the electro DJ duo’s new downbeat, nostalgic single released today (January 13).
Telling the tale of a difficult love affair, the single begins with mellow vocals from frontman Drew Taggart (“We were staying in Paris / To get away from your parents”) and a light backbeat. As the song progresses, their signature tropical beats do return — but it's definitely a less explosive song than their 2016 smash hit “Closer.”
Ahead of the single’s release, The Chainsmokers tweeted out their own definition of “Paris.”

Romantic definitions aside, get acquainted with "Paris." We're pretty sure you'll be hearing it lots in 2017.
