The Chainsmokers Have a Diamond Certified Single

The EDM genre musicians the Chainsmokers recently announced via their Instagram profile and on the Jimmy Kimmel show that their single with Halsey titled Closer has been diamond certified. There are over 10 million and counting sales of this single from shipments from the United States. The song is certifiably a global phenomenon. The song was certified to be a multi-platinum single by the RIAA back in March 2017. The RIAA has not officially changed the status on the song, but they will soon. The EDM duo appeared on Kimmel with their plaques announcing the song’s status as being diamond certified when they appeared as the musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel’s show on September 13.

Closer was a top 100 song back in 2016. The single stayed on the list for much longer than anyone expected. The song is an EDM song, but it was even a top charting song on genre-crossing lists. The single is the fourth longest-running hit single in the United States top song list.

Closer has won awards in the past for the Chainsmokers as well. The song helped them gain their first Grammy nomination in the category of the best pop duo/group performance of the year. The Chainsmokers did not win the Grammy, but the nomination along with the continued success of the song proves that the Chainsmokers really made something special with their hit song Closer.

The Chainsmokers had in the past put out a good number of top ten charting songs. Closer was really what gave them recognition across genres and for a more varied audience scope. Closer was also the first top song that Halsey had in her career. The song has proved to be unstoppable and will likely be remembered for a long time as one of the top songs of the late 2010s by music buffs in the future.

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart Explain Their Future; Elaborate on Future Concert Experience

In a recent interview, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart talked about their band, The Chainsmokers, and the evolution of the group.

 

Andrew Taggart, prior to joining The Chainsmokers, was going to college in Maine and working on the side as a DJ. He was also interning at Interscope Records. A friend of Alex Pall’s manager mentioned that Pall’s previous partner left him and he believed that Taggart would be the perfect addition to the group.

 

Alex Pall was working as a DJ in New York City. Music had always been a hobby of his, and he had finally created it into a career when his partner called it quits. Pall’s manager introduced him to Andrew Taggart, and the two began making music that they would soon be famous for.

 

Together, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart have created almost countless hit songs. Some of their songs include “Closer,” “Paris,” and “#Selfie.” After the release of “Closer,” as a part of their media tour, they stopped by Interview Magazine to discuss their future plans. Alex Pall also talked about Halsey, who is the featured artist on “Closer.”

“She’s incredible,” Pall said in reference to Halsey. “Halsey was number one on [our list of wanted collaborations.] Alex Pall had nothing but positive words for Halsey. He also called her cool, a unique artist, and complimented her singing voice.

 

The song “Closer” also marked the first time The Chainsmokers had an official lead singer. Andrew Taggart took over that role for the band, and going forward, The Chainsmokers will feature even more vocals from Andrew Taggart.

 

This change will also bring positive change to their live show, according to The Chainsmokers. Fans of The Chainsmokers will no longer be subjugated to unusual concert experiences. For example, because The Chainsmokers relied on guest vocalists to provide the lyrics to their music it was impossible to bring all of them on tour. This resulted in their vocals being emitted from speaker systems. Now Andrew Taggart can take over their roles, eliminating the need for the speaker system.
