If you haven’t heard of The Chainsmokers, then you might want to climb out from under that rock. This duo has been unstoppable on the billboard charts for years, with their first smash hit “Roses” breaking into the top ten way back in 2015. The duo, which features Alex Pall and Drew Taggart are both producers. They eventually would take up the art of singing once they star status became big enough. After “Roses”, they continued to smash the charts with hits like “Paris”, “Something Just Like This” featuring Coldplay, and then their bonafide number one hit “Closer”.
With their wave continuing to flow following the 12 week success of “Closer”, they would go on to win a Grammy after the release and subsequent success of their dance heavy anthem “Don’t Let Me Down”. This happened to turn pop newcomeer Daya into a industry must-have nearly overnight. It’s hard enough to try to beat yourself when you have experienced such success, and believe it when these two had the pressure on them to deliver. The Chainsmokers have recently released their new single “Sick Boy” and this is just a small sample of these two taking their careers to the next level.
According to Drew Taggart, since the group hasn’t put out a hot new single in over nine months, 2018 has seen these two on a bit of a hiatus if you will. With “Sick Boy” dropping, they feel as if this is a fresh start of a completely new chapter for the duo. Taggart goes on to speak about the frustration and anger that is felt when watching people react to social media and what they have become. Staying true to yourself is key, but with personal changes in life, will we see the music begin to shift as well? Only time will tell according to these two. Their plan is to take 2018 by storm and with hopes that their new single will take off, we can only watch and listen as this story of two DJs unfolds right before our eyes and ears.
