The Chainsmokers Release Another Single, Side Effects
A hotel employee is tired of her boss and her job, and decides to dance instead in the new video for “Side Effects” by The Chainsmokers, featuring Emily Warren.
Matthew Dillon Cohen directed Camila Mendes, of Riverdale fame, in this music video where she listens to her boss direct her to stick around through the weekend, ditch her uniform, and start dancing. She moves throughout the packed hotel, each room occupied and light by neon as Warren sings to the tune of energetic pop.
Ever since Memories… Do Not Open, The Chainsmokers have maintained attention from fans with a steady stream of singles. In 2018 alone they’ve put out “Somebody,” “Everybody Hates Me,” “You Owe Me,” “Sick Boy,” and now “Side Effects.”
In addition to new tracks, fans of dance music can find the duo as they continue their US tour well into October.
