The Chainsmokers “Closer” Nabs Tremendous Accolade

Although the Chainsmokers began life as EDM DJs they always wanted something more. According to both Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart they decided early on to branch out from dance music. Pall wanted a complete body of work showing their evolution. Taggart wanted to stay away from becoming their own parody. Both of them desired the title of artist and wanted to set themselves apart. Formed in 2012 the dynamic duet made their break in 2014. The breakthrough happened by riding the good ship “#Selfie”, which was their first real big hit. “#Selfie” may have established them in the mainstream, but it was not until 2016 that they broke out as artists. The song flying them through that barrier was a little number called “Closer”. “Closer” was a collaborative effort with another artist named Halsey. Halsey was just starting out and joined Taggart on lead vocals. The song was served as her breakthrough to the mainstream. Last month all three artists found out that “Closer” had breached ten million sales. It is now a diamond certified

“Closer” was a big deal right out of the gate. The song landed on the charts with a flash and climbed straight to the top. It did not leave either. To the surprise of many it stayed there garnering the fourth longest-running No.1 ever in U.S. History. Apparently, the song was not done. Two years later and it is still selling. Ten million copies is a lot but then again it is a catchy song. Pall and Taggart uploaded a photo with their new plaques to Instagram, with Halsey following suit after. The artists were all smiles clutching a very coveted accolade.

Closer” follows the accidental hook-up or two former lovers who run into each other. They apparently ended it over the man’s alcohol abuse. Despite this they still carry a fire for one another. The story is loosely based on Taggart’s real life experiences and also focuses on class differences as well. The woman, who is sung by Halsey, is apparently from a rich and disapproving family. The song has a very catchy beat and gets stuck in your head.
