2018 is proving to be quite the year for EDM artists the Chainsmokers. The dynamic DJ duet of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart started the year strong with a string of single releases. The singles ranged from the dark-themed “Sick Boy”, to their lighter fare “Side Effects”. All of them have been very well-received. In addition to their song producing success the group has also had some blasts from the past. Their first studio album, which is also their only studio album, “Memeories… Do Not Open” nabbed the slot for third longest running non-consecutive No.1 for Billboard. This garnered the group high praise as their original sound has been proven to carry weight. Well apparently their evolved sound is good too because another blast form the past has just reared its head. Earlier this week the duo announced via Instagram that their 2016 hit single “Closer” was certified silver. This is a huge development from the group that it only four years young in the mainstream world.
The duo graced Instagram with some photos showing both Pall and Taggart holding some large plaques up. The giant plaques encase the cover art, records, and full certifications for diamond status. They also have certified diamond in big letters at the bottom. Halsey, the up and coming artist who collaborated with the duo, received one of her own. “Closer” was actually Halsey’s first hit single and served as her breakout song. Since then she has established herself in her own right. Both Pall and Taggart were very grateful for the honor and grateful to their fans. With so much going on one must wonder what is next for the New York-based artists.
“Memeories… Do Not Open” remains the duet’s solo album. They have hinted at a second and many believed the smattering of singles indicated one to come. Although they certainly do not need one as they are doing fine without, the success of their last album begs the question of will they. Right now the time is indeed ripe for number two, their star is more on the rise than ever. At present though they probably will just bask in success awhile.
