The Chainsmokers’ streak of successes

The Chainsmokers transitioned from being a famous DJ duo to one of the leading hit-making groups across the world. All along, the Chainsmokers had been doing well but their song, the “Closer,” took them to a greater level that they have held on all through. “Closer” made the Chainsmokers to appear in the list of Hot 100 among the top 10. This piece made an incredible impact and is likely to leave a legacy as the most popular piece as it broke seven records.

The seven records include 12 weeks at no. 1, which the collaboration between Chainsmokers and Halsey achieved. The “Closer” ruled several weeks in a row, hence will always be tied at the top list of the fourth-longest run with other six tracks. Another record that “Closer” broke was attaining Most Weeks as Top 10. The song was among the top 10 for 32 consecutive weeks.

The third record is that Chainsmoker’s song emerged among top 10 for the most weeks since “Debuting There.” It is was a great achievement for Chainsmokers to have their song remain among the top 10 for several weeks regardless of the competition in the industry. The fourth record broken is that Chainsmokers have had three top 10 hits simultaneously. These hits songs include “Something Just Like This,” “Paris,” and “Closer.”

The fifth record is that the Chainsmokers’ “Closer” was among the top five for most weeks in history. Apart from making it among top 10 for 32 weeks, the Chainsmokers’ song managed 26 frames in top 5 breaking the previous record of 25 frames.

Among the Dance Hits that have made it to number one, Chainsmokers dance hit took the longest time, lasting up to 27 weeks, breaking the sixth record. Lastly, among the seven records broken by Chainsmokers is that they were the first in history who scored three back-to-back No. 1 hits. This was a great accomplishment since no single song intercepted their three hits.

Is Alex Pall Different Than We Thought?

In a recent interview with the members of The Chainsmokers, Mathias Rosenzweig discussed a certain matter that has come up in recent news about the duo. Ms. Rosenzweig discussed quite a few subjects with the two members and it started as most interviews do.

Alex Pall was asked how the two members met and started working together. He responded in a not so surprising way, seeing as though he has always had a musical tune in him. He mentioned that he was a DJ growing up and this was his hobby at the time. He was working side jobs here and there but nothing too fantastic. Alex was working with a manager at the time while he was going through a stage with a great interest in art galleries and dance music. Through this stage and his manager, he met Drew, who his manager had introduced him to. The two began working immediately and from then on it was history.

Andrew Taggart, on the other hand, was also very strongly interested in DJing and had a strong passion for electronic music. He was made fun of for his interest in this style of music and the way he dressed because when he was in college and right as he was leaving college, this was not the style that people sought after. It eventually evolved as he had predicted and his past style is now the style of many.

Another question that came up in the interview was how the two were going to work things out, seeing as though they were both on different ends of the spectrum when referring to music. They both agreed that they were different but they also both knew what they brought to the table. Through this agreement and trust in each other, the two have gone on to make many top-selling hits and wow millions of fans from all across the world.

The interview continued on with a few more questions discussing success and what led to it, but the main message that Alex and Drew gave was to never give up and believe.
