In the video for the new single “Side Effects” by The Chainsmokers and Emily Warren, an exhausted hotel employee hangs up on her boss and dances the night away.
Camile Mendes, from the hit CW show Riverdale, is already visibly exhausted when she gets the call that she’ll have to work through the weekend. She let’s him know what she thinks by hanging up and tossing her uniform off camera. Mathew Dillon Cohen directed this tour through the hotel as Mendes dances around guests under neon lights, moving to dance music.
The Chainsmokers have steadily released singles since their stunning debut album Memories… Do Not Open. With “Side Effects,” the duo has put out five new tracks in 2018.
Fans who aren’t satisfied with just music videos still have a chance to see the Chainsmokers in person. Currently they’re touring the US well into October.
