Chromeo Expected Backlash From Jealous Success

Chromeo revealed in a new interview for AMP Radio's 97.1 Seconds With series that they expected a backlash after hearing their song "Jealous (I Ain't With It)" on the radio.

When asked "How does it feel to hear your song on the radio?" they responded, "We thought there would be some kind of backlash. But it's the contrary. We took almost 10 years to build a solid underground foundation. We did everything, all the credible steps that a band could take. Putting out vinyl, getting remixes, working with the right people. And basically showing that this is going to come when its right. But we're not chasing a hit.

"When our fans hear us on the radio, or new people hear us on the radio and learn about us, it's like the underdog made it. So everybody is actually really proud and supportive. And they feel like its a victory for them as well.

"Instead of feeling betrayed by their band. Theyr'e like "HA HA! I've loved Chromeo for 10 years, and I was right!" We didn't change the music to get there. That's the crucial part. Jealous is the most Chromeo song ever!"
