Bumble and The Chainsmokers team up to launch Bumble Beats at SMU in Dallas.

Some lucky students at Southern Methodist University in Dallas got a sweet surprise in their Bumble stream Tuesday when the mugs of The Chainsmokers' Drew Taggart and Alex Pall appeared. Those who swiped right were swept off their feet, with the chance to win free tickets to the Grammy-winning duo's concert that evening, and some ultra-lucky ladies and gentlemen got the full meet-and-greet, with Bumble swag and all.

It's a new venture for the dating app called Bumble Beats, and it's hitting the road to bring more exclusive opportunities to college campuses across the country. If dating apps aren't your thing, you can still participate with the friend and business verticals, Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz.

Tuesday's launch saw 1,000 students match with The Chainsmokers in 48 hours. They were told to meet at SMU's north end flagpole around mid-day to receive their free concert tickets, but they weren't expecting the duo to hand deliver them. The surprise meet-and-greet came with tons of Bumble swag, while one big winner took the stage to introduce the band before the big show. 

As Bumble Beats snakes its way across America, students can expect more charting musical guests to pop in among the possible suitors, friends and collaborators. Get excited and peep these photos from The Chainsmokers' Bumble Beats launch below.
