Marshmello & CHVRCHES “Here With Me” Video Is An Ode To Self-Sacrifice
Marshmello has yet another budding hit on his hands with his CHVRCHES collab “Here With Me.” Since dropping last month, the electro-kissed anthem has amassed more than 56 million Spotify streams. That coupled with strong sales on US iTunes (the track is still Top 40 there) has already sent it up the Billboard Hot 100. This week it reached a new peak at number 53. And it is likely to continue its ascent following the release of a riveting music video. Out today (April 5), the project is a moving tribute to the self-sacrifice exhibited by first responders and their family members. Inspired by the true story of California fire fighter, it’s quite the tear-jerker. Luckily, it is one with a happy ending.
All things considered, it looks like Marshmello could have another “Happier”-sized smash on his hands moving forward. Earlier this week he and CHVRCHES gave the track some additional promo with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. If things keep going at this pace, they shouldn’t have any problem climbing the chart. But that’s not all. The bucket-headed DJ is also using the release to encourage fans to give to a good cause. He partnered with YouTube Giving to embed a button to the video enabling them to donate funds to First Responders Support Network. At the time of publishing, viewers amassed nearly $700 for the organization. Expect that number to continue rising in the coming hours. It is nice to see the hitmakers using the video for a good cause.
