EDM-Pop Legends, The Chainsmokers, Shine on with Their Diamond Certification

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

Fans of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, also known in the EDM-Pop world as the dynamic duo The Chainsmokers, were thrilled to discover that the duet’s smash hit “Closer” had topped at least 10 million units delivered in the United States, giving their single a coveted diamond certification by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America). While the RIAA seemed slow to break the news themselves, both The Chainsmokers and Halsey (whose intense vocals are featured in the single as well) proudly shared pictures on their Instagram accounts, smiling and holding tightly onto their plaques which commemorate this momentous occasion. Previously, the RIAA had recognized the song’s seven-time platinum status back in March of 2017. However, since that time, this status has grown to a ten-time platinum single, a feat for which many musicians can only hope.

For a little over two years, “Closer” had continuously received praise and recognition on the dance music scene. First, in the later part of 2016’s summer, it rocketed to the top of the Hot 100. Then it later went on to become an addition to the list of songs tied for fourth place in endurance as the number one hit in the United States in all-genre singles. Grammy nominations for both The Chainsmokers and Halsey were received because of the single, and while they did not win these iconic honors, they did collect several other awards along the way. One of these accolades included that of Billboard’s longest-standing number one hit in the Hot Dance/Electronic genre up until recent months, when it was surpassed by the single “The Middle” by Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey.

While The Chainsmokers were no strangers to having a single in the top 10 hits before releasing “Closer”, this was Hasley’s first time to branch out from her growing fanbase into the dance and EDM culture. Because of this great achievement, Hasley is now a household name.
