The Chainsmokers and Coldplay Team Up For New Single

(Radio.com) The Chainsmokers and Coldplay have teamed up for a new single called "Something Just Like This" which their premiered live on Wednesday (February 22nd), following leaked details about the collaboration earlier in the day.

News of the track broke when Spotify prematurely posted a banner ad at the top of the site's home page featuring the graphic below with a Listen Now button--only--the button didn't actually direct to the new song.

Chainsmokers eluded to working with the British band back in September 2016 when the dance duo posted two Snapchat videos of Chris Martin singing in the studio with Drew Taggart and Alex Pall sitting at the controls. Whether that particular session made the cut is unclear, but now we finally get to hear the finished product.

"Something Just Like This" was premiered with a live performance by both groups during the Brit Awards telecast. Check out the new collaborative track and artwork here.

Lady Gaga Had Most Watched Music Event of All Time?

(Gibson) According to the folks at the NFL, Lady Gag's Super Bowl halftime performance this year was the most-watched musical event of all time. Yes, of all time. That's even considering that Katy Perry's 2015 halftime show was the most-watched halftime show ever.

Here's the logic behind the NFL's assertion. If you pool together how many people watched the halftime show on all the platforms, that makes for a lot of people. Around 118 million viewers watched Gaga on TV.

But there were also plenty of people watching on the NFL's digital platforms, such as YouTube, Twitter, NFL.com and NFL Mobile. More than 150 million unique people watched the Gaga performance, according to the NFL. Read more here.

Florida Georgia Line, Nelly and Chris Lane Announce Tour

(Radio.com) Florida Georgia Line will be mixing things up musically for their just announced tour which will feature up-and-coming country star Chris Lane and hip-hop/R&B artist Nelly on the bill.

Radio.com spoke to FGL's Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley about the upcoming tour, and their longstanding friendship with Nelly, who appeared on a remix of the group's first single, "Cruise."

"Yeah, we're excited," Hubbard enthuses. "Nelly's an awesome friend and a great entertainer and a great guy to be on the road with and learn from, so we're really excited to be back out with him and Chris Lane, one of our best friends, one of our favorite tour mates as well. Put those two guys together in the baseball stadium in the summer, it's gonna be awesome. It's gonna be a huge party, and we're gonna give our fans something to remember, for sure."

While hooking up a country act and a hip-hop artist can come off as a bit stunt-y, FGL say that their friendship with Nelly is genuine, and they've toured together in the past as well. "I think from day one Nelly came in kind of like a mentor, like an uncle kind of figure and a really good friend," Kelley says. "From day one it felt like somebody we'd grown up with and kinda already knew. It's a relationship and a friendship where you don't really have to try, you're just kinda always talking and chatting. And he always takes the time to lift us up and encourage us and share stories with us, and he's nothing but smiles. And he can get all 'business' on you and tell you the deal and give you some really good advice."

"So at the heart of that, there's a really good friendship. And we've done a lot of soundchecks together, we've done a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff that nobody really knows about. We've spent late hours, spent time traveling together, just waiting around together. And that's where the true test of friendship is, man, in those moments where you're not working."

"Draco" opens at an arcade where a young Future plays a video game and does so well he enables "Gangsta Mode." That attracts the attention of a young girl eating an ice cream cone, but she happens to be on a "date" with another boy. "You ain't never ever get yo b—- back," Future sings on the chorus. And the boy doesn't. His former gal is smitten with young Future.

The same thing happens when Future's fully grown. Walking past a couple arguing on the street, his mere presence draws that girlfriend away from her nerdy boyfriend.

She and other women he's wooed knock off their ex-boyfriends and grab stacks of cash in the process.
