“So you want to find lyrics that talk about how hard it is being white and in love.”
This is 19-year-old John Fassold, a student at Arizona State University majoring in digital culture of music.
Fassold told BuzzFeed News he doesn’t despise music from the very successful pop music duo the Chainsmokers, per se. But he did think it’d be funny to show the repetitive and formulaic nature of their very successful hits.
“Honestly nothing really bothers me about their success,” Fassold said about the artists. “If they're making money and doing everything right, I can't fault them for that.”
But he's definitely not a fan.
In a Snapchat video that he then shared on YouTube and Twitter, Fassold hilariously breaks down “how every Chainsmokers song is written.” He even tries his hand at composing one himself.
On YouTube, his upload has already amassed over 2.7 million views since Sunday, and his tweet has been retweeted over 14,000 times.
