About this ukulele video lesson...

This song has some depth to it, but it is even popular on the dance floor. The song was first played live during the 2017 BRIT Awards in February. This was also the song’s debut, and it was met with a very warm response from fans, as well as critics.

In fact, when they released the lyric video to the song, it broke records for views in a single day. It had more than nine million views, which is truly astounding.

When you hear about just how this song developed, it is even more astonishing. They were playing around with some chords and had Chris Martin freestyle for about an hour. The song they released was the result. The Chainsmokers said that they had never seen someone write a song like that in a stream of conscious.
