The Chainsmokers are an electronic pop duo which comprises of Andrew Taggart, Alex Pall, and occasionally features Australian drummer Matt McGuire. The usual duo has been known to mix indie, pop, and dance music, as well as hip hop. They began making music under the name The Chainsmokers in 2012 and their first breakout hit was titled “#Selfie” which put them near the top of the Billboard dance/electronic songs chart in 2014. “#Selfie” topped the charts in many countries, and their 2015 single “Roses” made its way on the Hot 100 list of Billboard.
After 2015 their single, “Don’t Let Me Down” reached the top five on Billboard and ended up winning a Grammy award for the best dance recording. Around the same time their single “Closer” quickly became a number one hit single on the Billboard chart. With fame like this it’s no wonder that the group is wondering what is going to happen next.
The band behind such hit songs as “Something Just Like This,” and “Closer” is closing in on the end of a thee-year deal with Wynn Nightlife, and collects checks in the mid six-figures for their DJ sets. It is exciting to see what the duo will be up to after the deal with Wynn Nightlife runs out.
In August of 2018 The Chainsmokers were featured in Forbes for earning their best year in music since the beginning of their career. They reached number two on the Forbes list of highest paid DJs in 2018 earning almost 10 million more than what they were earning in 2017.
With their latest hits doing far better than anything they’ve ever created before, the Chainsmokers are well on their way to super-stardom and fame. It will be exciting to see what they are waiting to put out next.
