In some of the most surprising news I’ve seen today, it appears as if Wiz Khalifa has his own remix of ‘Closer’ by The Chainsmokers that he has begun performing live. As anyone who has ever used Soundcloud knows, remixes of The Chainsmokers are everywhere. It’s not often that we get a remix quite like this one however. The rapper shared a video of him performing the track on his Twitter feed yesterday. Wiz does Wiz things on the remix, rapping about weed and getting high much to his fans’ delight.
There’s no doubt in my mind this will get an actual release down the road, though there is no information regarding a release yet. The two artists actually linked up to play Spotify’s Grammy party a few weeks ago, and this is where the idea for the remix possibly originated. Check out the clip of Wiz performing it live below and keep your eyes out for an official release potentially coming soon.
