The Chain smokers are a duo team consisting of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall who have a pervasive background in Music. They first came into the production scene with their first single in 2014 which was known as “Selfie.” However, it’s in 2016 that they were able to blow off the charts with their three hit singles which topped the Billboards top 10. They have come up massive singles and went ahead to come up with two of the biggest albums of the year 20177, thus putting it across that they were more popular and influential than anyone could have imagined.
Among their top tracks include “Closer,” which features the popular pop star Halsey which held on to the frames of the charts for the past year. It went ahead to make history as having the most weeks at the top 10 on the list of the Hot 100 of all time. It stayed at the top for a remarkable 32 weeks which is the longest since LeAnne Rimes set the record years before with “How Do I Live” many years back. This achievement was, however, watered a little bit later on in the year 2017. The hit song also went on to become one of the longest running hits in the U.S history. It also had the most weeks inside the top five and went ahead to set a record.
For most of 2016, the Chain smokers only saw the best of the charting run, and this went on to the year 2017 which saw them enter into historical records. The hit singles such as “Don’t Let Me Down,” “Closer,” “Paris,” and among their most recent “Something Just like This” which features Coldplay. They now have the highest tier as the second longest stay on the charts. They had an incredible run where their names appeared somewhere between Number 1 and 10 for more than 61 weeks constantly. They now are at the second place just behind Katy Perry who had 69 weeks on the top 10. The success of Chain Smokers saw them own up to 3 positions at one time which has only happened 14 times before where it’s even rarer with a non-solo act.
