Daya's Mom Didn't Want Her to Record 'Don't Let Me Down' With The Chainsmokers

Could you imagine The Chainsmokers‘ “Don’t Let Me Down” without Daya?

The 18-year-old singer – who is nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 2017 Grammys this weekend for her work on the song – is revealing that her mom didn’t want her to record it at first because of The Chainsmokers‘ “hard-partying reputation!” (via ABC Radio)

When her mom found out about the Grammy nomination, Daya revealed, “She was laughing. ‘Cause she was against it, for a very small amount of time in the beginning. But I told her I wanted to do it, and she was okay with it, and she met [The Chainsmokers], and now she loves them and they’re like family to her!”

“I think it’s the biggest honor to get a Grammy or even to be nominated for a Grammy, because it’s so music-focused,” she added. “And it’s [voted for] by real, true, talented musicians and respectable people in the industry. So… it’s an honor to be a part of that.”
