Who Is the Girl Singing on the New Chainsmokers Song ‘Paris’?
Story written by Matt Medved – via Billboard:
The Chainsmokers today (Jan. 13) released “Paris,” their much-anticipated follow-up to last year’s No. 1 smash “Closer.”
While the song has no official featured vocalist, the uncredited female vocals spurred fan speculation in the weeks preceding its release with reports that they belonged to Selena Gomez or French singer Luane.
However, The Chainsmokers’ manager Adam Alpert confirmed to Billboard that the singer is Emily Warren, the singer/songwriter who co-wrote the duo’s top 10 hit “Don’t Let Me Down” and featured on their 2015 Tritonal collab “Until You Were Gone.”
Based in New York, Warren is an accomplished songwriter with credits for the likes of Fifth Harmony (“Them Girls Be Like”), Shawn Mendes (“Strings,” “Aftertaste,” “Air,” “Lost”) and Sean Paul (“No Lie”). She also recently featured on the latest Lost Kings single “Phone Down.”
Warren also took to Instagram today to post a snippet of “Paris” with the caption “haters will say it’s selena #itsnotselenagomez #itaintlouane #itsyagirl.”
