According to Billboard, both Weezer and Linkin Park are in talks with the chart-topping EDM duo.
This comes after Weezer turned down the Chainsmokers' offer to join them at Coachella earlier this year.
“I can’t blame somebody for saying no early on, but it depends on how you said no and how you came back to us,” one half of the duo, Alex Pall, says to Billboard. “If you own it, like, ‘I didn’t see the vision, but it’s clear now and it’s super sick,’ I get that. It feels good when those people are like…” the other half of the duo, Drew Taggart, adds, “Thirsty.”
Another comical side note, Palls says he got a call from Linkin Park while on the tiolet.
In the article, Billboard mentions the Chainsmokers admiration for “Twenty One Pilots’ theatrical shows” and “Blink-182’s honest lyrics,” the latter of which makes sense—since, in the duo's current No. 1 song “Closer,” Halsey sings the iconic line, “stay, and play that Blink-182 song.”
