Music You Should Know: Love & Lust Make The World Go Round

It's all about chemistry this week!

 

James Bay - Hold Back the River

The world needs more love songs and James Bay delivers! James has his own style that is a little more alternative rock, and you can hear that in his hit song Hold Back the River.  Very different from our normal British heartthrob, Ed Sheeran.

James Bay came out with his debut album, Chaos and the Calm last year and it went straight to number one in the UK. Although Hold Back the River was RIAA certified Gold, James' label feels the song could do a little bit better thanks to his mega-hit "Let It Go" and have reissued the song.

 

 

The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey - Closer

Who would have thought that chronic hit-makers, The Chainsmokers, once had a song called "#Selfie?"  Well, we'd very much like to forget that song ever existed because it pales in comparison to what's been happening with this EDM group.

After their massive hit "Don't Let Me Down" with Daya, The Chainsmokers have partnered up with the incredible Halsey to really show the world what they're capable of.  And, man, jaw DROP.

And, also, their VMAs performance?  Yowza, that was SIZZLING HOT!
