The Chainsmokers Consider Youngblood Hawke, American Authors Collabos

'Fuse News' catches up with the "#SELFIE" duo at Ultra Music Festival 2014

"#SELFIE" is just the second single from New York duo The Chainsmokers, but the hilarious tongue-in-cheek ode to narcissism is one of the biggest dance hits of 2014.

When Fuse News caught up with them at Ultra 2014, the duo revealed they're chatting with two separate indie bands about potential collaborations.

"We've been speaking with [L.A. indie pop act] Youngblood Hawke and we just spoke with ["Best Day of My Life" hitmakers] American Authors about doing a track," Drew Taggart tells us. "We're looking at a lot of artists that have just had their first big hit that we really like."

As for their own breakout hit, Alex Pall is amused when people trash it. "You should see the people that hate on it," he says, laughing. "They're like, 'This song sucks!' and we're like, 'We know, it’s a totally ridiculous song!' Don’t be mad at us—the world likes it."
