WATCH: THE 1975 On THE CHAINSMOKERS' New Track: "It's Going To Be Rubbish!"
While most people would think The Chainsmokers' newest single "Paris" is fire, it seems like The 1975 frontman Matt Healy thinks otherwise. When Nick Grimshaw introduced "Paris" as the track of the day in the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show, the 27-year-old singer was quick to comment on the song being "rubbish."
"It's going to be rubbish. Put it on, let’s see what this is like,” Matt said.

It's not clear if there's some beef between the rock band and the electronic pop duo, but it might (or might not) be because of the two having a track of the same title. And as fans put it, the instrumentals on The Chainsmokers' track sounds similar to The 1975's. See their tweets below:
