The Chainsmokers Music and Single

The Chainsmokers reached their breakout in the year of 2014 when they released their hit song “Selfie.” This song reached the charts in twenty different countries. Then they released their hit song “Roses” in 2015 along with “Don’t let me down,” which was their first hits to make it to the top ten on the charts. In 2016 they released their single “Closer” which was their first single to be number one on the music charts, and it stayed number one for weeks. Then, “Something just like this” came out and hit the top of the charts, along with their hit “Paris.” In 2018, the Chainsmokers came out with another hit called “Sick boy.” Their new music has a darker vibe than their past music. They wanted to try something new and relevant to the problems of this generation. They have also went on to win several different awards including a Grammy in 2015.

Before the chainsmokers started in 2012, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart were two men with a dream. Alex lived in New York where he pursued djing part time. He wanted to make a career out of his music but he felt it felt more like a hobby than a job. But one day he decided to make a career out of it and he gave it a shot. Andrew Taggart was a college student and he planned on pursuing music in L.A. after college. He lived in Maine, and loved electronic pop music. One day he heard that the chainsmokers needed a new member, and he set out on a bus immediately and headed to New York to meet Alex. As soon as they met they went to Alex’s apartment and started creating music. Then in 2014 they took off and became a musical sensation!

The Chainsmokers Release the Single “Sick Boy”

In the world of Electronic Dance Music, the Chainsmokers keep changing the game with songs that are not only technically beautiful but lyrically as well. After 9 months of waiting, fans finally got to hear new music from the duo that included their hit song “Sick Boy”. A true reflection of society according to their generation, “Sick Boy” is much darker than their music has ever been before. “Sick Boy” is not about someone needing a doctor, instead it talks about the sick obsession the United States seems to have with social media. While Alex Pall and Drew Taggart of the Chainsmokers admit in their song that they have chosen to live in this lifestyle with no privacy and constant judgment, it is still a concerning problem to them and for society in general. Social media breeds narcissism, and while it is not always a bad thing and sometimes even necessary, sometimes it’s taken to far and people have an identity crisis over who they are portraying themselves as online.

The Chainsmokers may have taken a big risk by moving in this direction, they did have some concern about alienating some of their fans, but it has paid off with hit after hit coming off of their new album. Taggart and Alex Pall are definitely coming into their own and are not afraid to say what they want to say. Their music of the Chainsmokers seems to be maturing with the artists and their fans. “Sick Boy” managed to reach the top 100 in the United States as well as hitting the charts in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, France, and others. Their single is refreshing and a candid look at life as a celebrity.

The Chainsmokers got together in 2012 and released their first hit single, “#Selfie”, released in 2014. Their first album, Bouquet made its debut in the fall of 2015 featuring their single “Roses” which made it to the Billboard top 10.
