#SELFIE is a song by American EDM duo, The Chainsmokers,
and was released as a single on January 28, 2014, by Dim Mak Records.
"#Selfie" is a EDM song that is mostly instrumental though it features spoken word verses;
the uncredited talking female vocals in the song is by Alexis Killacam.
The song details a young woman at a club, presumably speaking to friends, as she is concerned
about taking selfies and uploading them to her Instagram account, while she criticizes other
people at the club, including their outfits, while also dealing with a guy named Jason,
that she has a love/hate relationship with though she also might have a crush on him as well.
A 'Selfie' is a self-portrait photograph, which is normally taken with a digital camera or camera phone.
By the end of 2013 'Selfie' had become such a buzzword that it was chosen by The Oxford Dictionary as
their 'Word of the Year.'
The Chainsmokers said:
"The classic #Selfie, well it pretty much defines 2013… when VH1 does "remember the", the Selfie
will deserve its own section."
