The Chainsmokers - Don't Let Me Down (Feat. Daya) on Don't Let Me Down Single (2016)

The Chainsmokers - Don't Let Me Down (Feat. Daya) on Don't Let Me Down Single (2016)
"Don't Let Me Down" is a song by American DJ duo The Chainsmokers. It was released on February 5, 2016, through Disruptor and Columbia Records. The song features vocals from American singer Daya.

"Don't Let Me Down" became The Chainsmokers' and Daya's first top 5 single in the United States. It also reached top 10 positions in several countries, including Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

Robbie Daw of Idolator stated "[Don't Let Me Down] kicks off with a haunting guitar loop and 17-year-old Daya lamenting that she's 'crashing, hit a wall, right now I need a miracle.' By the time the chorus sweeps in, the song shifts into full-on trap mode." and called it a "trappy collaboration". Popdust's Jason Scott claimed "[Don't Let Me Down] is an enormously engaging strip of gritty dance-club euphoria. Percussion vibrates underneath a well-constructed skyscraper of synth and evocative vocals from the 17-year-old Daya." Rolling Stone named "Don't Let Me Down" one of the 30 best songs of the first half of 2016, writing "EDM may not dominate the charts the way it used to but the Chainsmokers' swirling, turnt-up love song proves the genre has a little fight left in it. Newcomer Daya goes to battle with the aggro, big room beats and ends up coming out on top."
