Chainsmokers ft. Coldplay
Something Just Like This

Fortunately his girl just wants a simple relationship with a straightforward guy.
  • The lyric video of the song was streamed more than 9 million times in just 24 hours after it was released. It broke the record previously held by Justin Bieber’s What Do You Mean lyric video, which was played 8.2 million times in its first day.

Michaels explained that she and her boyfriend fights a lot but always finds a way to work them out. She said the song is about knowing and accepting you and your partner have issues, but no matter what happens, you’re always there for each other.

  • Some of the issues Michaels admitted having about herself is that she is a very jealous person and is very confrontational that sometimes it causes problems.


Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean & Migos

  • The term “slide" is slang for engaging in a no-strings-attached sexual act. In the song, Ocean is questioning the behavior of the girl wondering if she wants to slide in someone's life just for their affluent lifestyle.
  • The song’s famous high pitched vocal opening line is a reference to a painting by Picasso. Ocean is actually saying “I might empty my bank account and buy that boy with a pipe, i might.” It implies that Ocean wants to buy the 1905 Pablo Picasso painting, Boy with a Pipe, that was sold in auction for 104 million dollars!
