The Winning Combination Of The Chainsmokers and Halsey Has Led To Highly Successful Results

In recent years, the Chainsmokers electronic dance music-pop duo has become one of the world’s most popular musical acts. A recent article on the Forbes website tells of how the song “Closer” that the Chainsmokers recorded with the singer Halsey has now achieved the status of being a certified-diamond single.

In order for a recorded music single to be afforded diamond status, at least ten million shipments of the song must be carried out. After receiving brand new plaques commemorating their achievement, both Halsey and the Chainsmokers posed for social media photos with the awards.

The song “Closer” debuted in 2016 and became a hit single almost right away. Spending several months as the most popular song in the U.S. has put “Closer” in a position of being one of America’s all-time, longest-running number one hit songs.

The plaques that both acts received were presented by the Recording Industry Association of America. Previously, the RIAA certified the “Closer” single in 2017 for achieving the seven-million copies mark.

“Closer” has turned out to be the most successful hit song so far for both Halsey and the Chainsmokers. Each of the acts received a Grammy nomination for the song, as well as other awards for their efforts.

Since its release, “Closer” has continued to remain in demand through radio airplay, recorded music sales and streaming music services. Until mid-2018, the song held Billboard magazine’s number one position on their dance/electronic music charts for longer than any other song.

The Chainsmokers have been recording their unique style of music for several years now, and their fan base has been steadily increasing. With the release of the “Closer” single, this talented duo has become a very well-known act.

Halsey is a popular singer in her own right, and has also greatly benefited from her participation in the “Closer” single.
