The Rise of the Chainsmokers

Introduction

Over recent years the production duo, The Chainsmokers, have amassed a large following due to their distinct musical style. The duo, which is comprised of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, have created many chart-topping singles and performed for a variety of shows. Their combination of both EDM and pop music have made their music unique and favorable to numerous audiences.

Background

Originally formed in 2012 with different group members, the American DJ duo gained many fans in 2014 after the release of their song “#Selfie”. The song was a hit in many countries and appeared on the Top 20 list of a variety of these countries. In 2015 the Chainsmokers finally reached the Top 10 with their single “Roses”, which had vocals from ROZES. The Chainsmokers did not stop with “Roses” in 2015, they continued to produce singles such as “Waterbed” and work with prominent DJ’s such as DJ Tiësto.

After their own rise, the Chainsmokers helped other artists rise to fame. “Don’t Let Me Down” is an upbeat single that the duo released in 2016. The single featured vocals from Daya, who soon after gained her own large following. They soon after worked with Halsey on “Closer”, which topped the charts at number one in both the United States and United Kingdom.

Throughout the course of their history, the Chainsmokers became used to releasing new songs almost every month. However, prior to the release of their new single, the Chainsmokers went on a nine month hiatus. It was not until January 17, 2018 that the Chainsmokers made a reappearance.

Recent Changes

The new single, “Sick Boy”, by the Chainsmokers has a much darker theme than their previous hit singles such as “Closer” and “Don’t Let Me Down”. The release of “Sick Boy” marks a new chapter in the musical story of the Chainsmokers; a chapter which aims to help them break away from their already familiar style. The theme of the single serves as a reflection of society and the personal lives of both Alex Pall and Drew Taggart.
