American-Japanese actor and singer Arata Mackenyu has collaborated with American duo The Chainsmokers!

Mackenyu sings on the Japanese version of "Closer", made as a bonus track for the Japanese edition of The Chainsmokers' album World War Joy

Mackenyu got involved when The Chainsmokers were looking for a Japanese collaborator and found him, and they put a new touch on the song that's already well-known by adding Japanese lyrics.
