Grammy Award-winning and Billboard Chart topping artist/producer duo, The Chainsmokers, have evolved into a dominating musical force with a diverse repertoire of songs that have led them to become one of music’s hottest recording acts. Comprised of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, their signature sound deftly reaches across indie, progressive, and pop realms. Their evolution as producers and as songwriters has seen them develop some of the biggest breakthrough songs over the course of the last few years, and their original tracks and remixes have topped the charts throughout the world.
In 2016, the group catapulted to worldwide stardom with three certified Multi-Platinum hits. “Roses,” featuring Rozes, from their Gold certified debut EP, Bouquet, was a 4X Platinum smash that shot to #1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. “Don’t Let Me Down” featuring Daya, included on the duo’s second Platinum selling EP titled Collage, went 4X Platinum and was a top 5 Billboard Hot 100 hit. The duo won the “Best Dance Recording” Grammy for the track at the 2017 Grammy Awards. Their Diamond certified single “Closer,” featuring Halsey, was also included on the Collage EP and went on to become the longest running #1 single of 2016 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
In April 2017, the group released their debut album titled Memories…Do Not Open via Disruptor Records/Columbia Records and embarked on their highly successful 40-city “Memories…Do Not Open” arena tour. The Platinum certified album debuted at #1 in the U.S. on the Billboard 200 chart and produced the global 2X Platinum certified smash “Paris,” which debuted at #7 and marked the duo’s highest first week entrance on the Billboard Hot 100 chart to date. The 4X Platinum certified “Something Just Like This,” featuring Coldplay, peaked in the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track earned the group a 2018 Grammy nomination for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.”
In December 2018, The Chainsmokers released their building album, titled Sick Boy, which includes the Gold certified single “This Feeling,” featuring Kelsea Ballerini and “Side Effects,” featuring longtime collaborator Emily Warren. Most recently, the duo has released new single “Who Do You Love” featuring multi-Platinum band 5 Seconds of Summer. Fans can catch The Chainsmokers live this fall headlining their “WORLD WAR JOY” North American arena tour. The duo will also maintain their extended Wynn Nightlife Residency in Las Vegas and will continue releasing music and touring across the globe throughout 2019.
