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.
Camila Mendes glides her way through her starring role in the latest Chainsmokers’ video for single, Side Effects. The Riverdale star- playing the part of a overworked hotel employee- brings slick moves to highlight the bouncy pop track but it is hard to say whose star shines brightest, Mendes, the Chainsmokers or guest vocalist Emily Warren. The duo is certainly on a roll, Side Effects being their fifth song released in 2018, following on the heels of hits like You Owe Me, Somebody and the title track for their soon to be released album Sick Boy. The highly anticipated album follows 2017 release, Memories… Do Not Open and the group will be performing through the end of 2018 to bring the breadth of their latest releases to fans eager to dance.
Their tracks have been difficult to miss as the EDM duo have been releasing hit after hit, their last record achieving platinum status and Forbes listing the group as the third highest paid DJ’s list of 2017. Forming in 2012, the Chainsmokers are Alex Paul and Andrew Taggart, a DJ and production team hailing from New York City. Developing a sound and style that merges pop, EDM, hip-hop and indie rock, the Chainsmokers have forged a musical path that lends to both headphone head-nods and dance floor riotous shivaree.
Latest single, Side Effects is one of the duo’s strongest. Longtime collaborator, Emily Warren turns in vocals that shine and shimmer above the bouncy, grooving track. See the video to Side Effects, where Mendes’ moves perfectly reflect the emotional heights and range of Warren’s lyrics. By the time Mendes races through the halls of the hotel, fireworks explode through the sky and we are invited to play peeping-tom to the various revelries of the hotel guests. With breathless ease this latest Chainsmokers hit is delivered to us in a perfect pop package.
