The Chainsmokers have been consistently killing the charts, and providing anthems for clubs everywhere. Today (Apr. 7), the duo have released their debut album Memories…Do Not Open, which features a hypnotic collaboration with Jhené Aiko, called “Wake Up Alone.”
Over a pulsating beat, Aiko reflects on her success and a love affair. “Now I got cars, now I got clothes, now I got money / Now I got crowds screaming my name, saying they love me / You get real close, say I’m not alone / You understand me / But late at night when I close my eyes, the quiet scares me,” she sings.
Later, Jhené dismisses the material items, and only hopes to keep the love close. “Will you be there in the morning / Do you stay when it all goes, or will I wake up alone?” she asks.
Memories…Do Not Open is out now featuring additional appearances from Florida Georgia Line, Emily Warren, and Louane. Jhené is currently working on her follow-up album to 2014’s Souled Out, as well as a second TWENTY88 project with Big Sean.
