Chainsmokers ‘Glad’ To Fight For Reproductive Rights

As fate would have it, when the Chainsmokers’ released “Paris” in 2017, there was no way of knowing that the song would one day resonate with advocates of reproductive rights.

Five years since its original release, the nostalgic song is reaching new audiences thanks large part to TikTok and the lyrics “if we go down, then we go down together,” which have taken on new meaning in the wake of the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.

With last Friday’s controversial Supreme Court decision to erase fifty years of women’s reproductive rights in the U.S. thousands of TikTokers re-visited “Paris” and repurposed the song as a call to arms.

One video in particular caught the attention of the EDM pop duo when one teary eyed user wrote “Do you think The Chainsmokers knew their little pop song about Paris would be used to fight for reproductive rights? F— the Supreme Court,”

Duetting the video, Chainsmoker member Drew Taggart reposted the interaction on Instagram with the caption “we did not see that coming but are glad that something we wrote is being used to support a cause we believe in.”

The Chainsmokers join a chorus of musicians who’ve reacted to the overruling of Roe v. Wade on social media, including Taylor Swift, Halsey, Madonna, Pink, Eminem, Pearl Jam.
