Chromeo Waiting Almost A Decade For Radio

(Radio.com) Chromeo had to wait nearly ten years and four albums to hear one of their songs on the radio, but according to Dave 1 it was well worth the wait. Last month the singer (born David Macklovitch) heard Chromeo's latest single "Jealous (Ain't With It)," off their new album White Women (out May 13), while driving down to Coachella. He even filmed the experience for posterity. Don't worry though, his manager was the one behind the wheel.

Dave 1 told Radio.com he had always wanted to hear himself on the radio, but it was mostly just to hear how it would actually sound over the airwaves. "That was the thing I was most curious about, radio compresses your music a certain way and all of a sudden it sounds real, you know?" he said. "It sounds like an FM hit," his bandmate, P-Thugg (real name, Patrick Gemayel) added.

"Yeah, I couldn't wait to hear it, to hear how the song sounded," Dave continued. "I was telling Pete, 'Yo, this is how the drums sound.' It was amazing."

Dave admits having "Jealous," off their upcoming album White Women (out May 13), be the first song he heard was sort of the cherry on top of an already delicious sundae.

"There's no other ode to the castrated male on the radio today," Dave told Radio.com. "In that sense our music means something in the context of other songs that are like, 'I know you want it, I know you want it.'" more on this story
