The Chainsmokers sang “Paris” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is off their new album “Memories… Do Not Open,” which was just released on April 7. See the video below of The Chainsmokers’s performance of “Paris” on “Saturday Night Live.”
This marks The Chainsmokers’s debut as the musical guests on “SNL.” When their appearance on “Saturday Night Live” was announced, The Chainsmokers tweeted, “Never in our wildest dreams did I ever think this would be possible!” before adding, “But for real, is this actually happening…are we dreaming.”
The music video for “Paris” has been viewed more than 60 million times since it was released in February. The video shows the group’s duo, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, walking around Los Angeles, while the house of a woman (model Martha Hunt) hovers over the city. At the end of the video, Hunt jumps out of the floating home and plummets through the sky until she safely lands on her bed.
“Paris” peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It also reached number five on the Mainstream Top 40 chart, number one on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, and 16 on the Adult Top 40 chart. Check out the video below of The Chainsmokers’s performance of “Paris” on “SNL.”
