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.

“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.
