The Ultimate Collaboration: The Chainsmokers, Illenium and Lennon Stella

It wasn’t long ago when there were rumors of a merger between The Chainsmokers and Illenium, although, with both having very distinct sounds, we were comforted by the fact this it was just an April Fools joke. After months of teasing, we have come to realize  that the cruel April Fools joke wasn’t too far off.

With a little help from female vocalist Lennon Stella, we are introduced to you the ultimate collaboration.

The song is introduced with a settle note from Stella that slowly intertwines with one-half The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggert. The way their vocals mesh is aesthetic and how the drop tastefully depicts bits and pieces of Illenium alongside classic Chainsmokers is genius.

Watch the official video for ‘Takeaway’ below

The video, which was directed by Jeremiah Davis, shows none other than a love story- matching the plot. With helicopter rides, futuristic architecture, trains, and more, the pace of the song is visually precise. That being said, this music video is the first ever to include The Vessel!

The Chainsmokers said,

We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to be one of the first artists to create a music video with The Vessel! We are from New York so to be a part of New York City history is incredibly special to us. We also had to run up a ton of stairs in this video all day so we hope people appreciate that hahaha…
