Camilla Mendes lenders her trendy moves to the video for The Chainsmokers’ new dance pop single, “Side Effects” featuring Emily Warren. Mendes’ character receives a call telling that she’d have to work through the weekend. Unhappy, she does what any self-respected, overworked hospitality worker really wants to do, rebel by breaking into dance. The star is seen dancing throughout the hotel, making every corridor her stage with the Chainsmokers’ single as her back beat. A seemingly liberating jump into the pool, closes out the video as she leaves work.
In her defense, the funky, upbeat, electro-pop single would send anyone straight to the dance floor in a frenzy. ‘Side Effects’ was released two years after their hit ‘Closer’ and is the duos fifth single release of 2018. It’s sure to follow the success of their many singles and is just a catching as they come. The single describes going places that you shouldn’t, its side effects and the lessons that times should’ve taught you.
The American duo consists of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, first broke into the music scene in 2014 with their single “Selfie”. They become a household name with their Grammy Award winning single “Don’t Let Me Down” that became their first single to hit the top 5 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Followed by their single “Closer”. It was their first number one single on the charts, winning them numerous awards including seven Billboard Music Awards and two American Music Awards.
