The Chainsmokers become first act to concurrently top Dance/Electronic Songs & Albums charts
The Chainsmokers have undeniably turned into worldwide superstars ever since they stepped inside this industry. These New York-based producers have become prominent for their several hits such as “Roses” and “Don’t Let Me Down”.
2016 has clearly been the duo’s most successful year especially with the release of their collaboration with electropop singer Halsey titled “Closer”. Currently, this track is still holding its place at the peak of Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs for the thirteenth consecutive week.
“Closer” was also featured in The Chainsmokers’ recently released extended play titled ‘Collage’ along with four of their other productions “Don’t Let Me Down”, “All We Know”, “Inside Out”, and “Setting Fires”.
According to Billboard, ‘Collage’ launched at the #1 spot of the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. The EP has amassed a total of 24,000 sold downloads and 4.2 million streams thus far and opened with the strongest first-week sales for any EP on the chart this year.
As a result of these two achievements, The Chainsmokers become the first act to simultaneously top the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs and Top Dance/Electronic Albums charts in 2016. The last time this occurred was when Major Lazer dominated with ‘Peace is the Mission’ and “Lean On”.
With these accomplishments in hand, The Chainsmokers just keep on solidifying their status as two of the industry’s top superstars. Especially with the year coming to an end, it is definitely exciting to see what they have in stored for 2017.
