Count on The Chainsmokers to take their sound somewhere entirely different with each track. The duo has always had a knack for exploring all sorts of genres, and now they can add country to the list with “This Feeling,” a collaboration with rising artist Kelsea Ballerini.
Chances are you’ll be into this track even if country’s not your thing, as it’s about as pop as it gets. It kicks off with a guitar strum and a subtle bassline, before Ballerini’s powerful voice comes into the picture.
“They tell me think with my head, not that thing in my chest / They got their hands at my neck, this time,” she sings as the music builds to a drop befitting of The Chainsmokers.
Andrew Taggart jumps in from the second verse on, his voice sounding right at home alongside Ballerini’s. When the two sing, “They don’t know what this feeling is like,” you really believe it. Because like the best country songs, “This Feeling” has real heart. And like the best EDM tracks, it knocks.
