The Chainsmokers Bio

The Chainsmokers have consistently elevated popular music by ceaselessly challenging it. The GRAMMY® Award-winning RIAA Diamond-certified duo—Drew Taggart and Alex Pall—have broken boundaries between pop, indie, electronic, alternative, and rock. By doing so, they have set the tempo for culture and proven inescapable, delivering some of the biggest songs in the world, hosting a historic multi-year Las Vegas residency, packing arenas on multiple continents, launching first-of-its-kind games in the metaverse, and selling tens of millions of singles along the way. Thus far, they have scored three Diamond singles, namely the Billboard Hot 100 #1 “Closer” [feat. Halsey], “Something Just Like This” [with Coldplay], and “Don’t Let Me Down” [feat. Daya]. The latter garnered a GRAMMY® Award for “Best Dance Recording.” As cultural arbiters and tastemakers, they’ve also fueled crossover success for collaborators as diverse as Lennon Stella (on “Takeaway” with Illenium) and Kelsea Ballerini (on “This Feeling”). Their 2017 full-length debut, Memories…Do Not Open, notably bowed at #1 on the Billboard 200 and paved the way for gold-certified albums Sick Boy [2018] and World War Joy [2019]. After four years of nonstop touring and music releases, the band took the time to rediscover themselves and spent two full years creating their musically evolved and very personal album, 2022’s So Far So Good. It marked their fourth #1 debut on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart, notching praise from Pitchfork and more. In search of new creative lanes, 2023 saw them returning to their musical roots - leaning into different sonic textures and handpicking buzzing developing collaborators. They launched their Summertime Friends release package in October, filled with collaborations spanning across dance, pop, and even Latin genres. The Chainsmokers continue to evolve as musicians and songwriters, bringing popular music with them into the future and on the road.
