Watch: The Chainsmokers, Coldplay collaborate for their new single 'Something Just Like This'
The Chainsmokers have a reputation for partnering with up-and-coming talents in the pop world, but this time around it looks like they looked towards the top of the charts for help
The 2017 BRIT Awards took place in London yesterday on 22 February 2017, and Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Skepta, the 1975, Ed Sheeran, Little Mix, and Emeli Sandé performed. There was a George Michael tribute too.
But the most surprising and the best performance of the evening was given by The Chainsmokers duo — who partnered with Coldplay for there new single, 'Something Just Like This' which was released shortly before the performance.
No-one had expected Chris Martin, who performed earlier in the George Michael tribute, to come back on stage for a performance.

Coldplay’s Chris Martin took up singing duties on the upbeat, loving track, which sounds like a perfect blend of the current sound that has been working for Coldplay, with a Chainsmokers-style EDM-pop drop reminiscent of their 2016 hit single 'Roses.'
The release of 'Something Just Like This' comes as something of a surprise given that the electronic duo is still busy promoting two other singles.
Just last month, the NYC-based pairing dropped 'Paris,' which sees member Drew Taggart fronting the majority of the vocals for the first time on a major single. That song debuted within the top 10 in both the U.S. and the U.K., and since then it has gone on to spend a handful of weeks inside the highest tier on the charts.
'Something Just Like This' is expected to be featured on The Chainsmokers’ upcoming debut full-length album, which will be out at some point later in 2017.
While the music video is still not out, here's the lyric video:
