Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, known musically as The Chainsmokers, hit the music scene hard in 2012. Their meteoric rise in the EDM genre is noteworthy. The music duo continually reinvents themselves as they grow individually and as musicians and that keeps their music fresh. While The Chainsmokers is comfortably topping the charts, they do not focus on the charts. Instead of letting the charts dictate where they want to go, they concentrate on making music that appeals to them and their dynamic and exciting live performances keep their fans wanting more.
Since their inception, The Chainsmokers have had five Top 10 hits and a Number 1 hit. Their first song to chart, “Closer” featuring Halsey peaked at Number 1. “Closer” stayed at its peak position for 12 straight weeks and it remained on the Billboard Charts for 52 weeks. “Don’t Let Me Down” featuring Daya on lead vocals charted for a full year, peaking at Number 3 on the Billboard Charts. “Roses” featuring Rozes on vocals resided on the Billboard Chart for 31 weeks peaking at Number 6 position, as did another chart-topping hit, “Paris” that stayed on the Billboard Charts for 20 weeks. Peaking at Number 3 on the Billboard Charts and charting for ten months was their hit “Something Just Like This,” a collaboration with Coldplay.
Staying on the Billboard Chart for 11 weeks and peaking at Number 16, “#Selfie” was another chart-topping hit for the dynamic duo. Other chart-topping hit songs are “All We Know” featuring Phoebe Ryan; “Sick Boy” released this year; “Setting Fires” featuring XYLO; “Honest” and “The One” round out their chart-topping successes.
Pall and Taggart pride themselves on pushing the envelope and stepping outside of their musical comfort zone to stay relevant musically. Realizing making music is a subjective activity, The Chainsmokers make music they want to do. They put their music out into the world with the goal of reaching the heart of their fans. Staying fresh and current has helped the duo win one Grammy and nomination for a second Grammy award.
