Throughout the past few years, the Chainsmokers have risen from the depths of obscurity to become one of the most famous musical acts of our generation. So just how have they managed to accrue such a pervasive amount of fame in such a short period of time? Alex Pall recently sat down with Mathias Rosenzweig to discuss how they rocketed to success, how they deal with the fame and fortune, and where they would like to go in the future of their career. The two first met in the big apple when Andrew Taggart was matriculating at one of the local universities and Pall was trying to make it as a fledgling DJ. It was Pall’s manager who introduced them and they instantly knew they would work well together which led to their frequent collaborations in the studio.
It wasn’t long before they were making music together on a regular basis and, before long, they had their first hit single on their hands with the release of Selfie. One hit single led to another and, before they knew it, they had become a household name. When discussing their most recent collaboration with Halsey, he had nothing but nice things to say about her, noting that she’s a fun and unique artist who isn’t afraid to let her individuality shine through. While most DJs don’t sing on their own songs, they are one of the few exceptions but they insist it’s necessary due to the fact that the lyrics pertain to their own lives and experiences.
Their fanbase used to consist mostly of high school students and young adults but it has since expanded to include people of all ages. As for their live concerts, they’ve been constantly growing and evolving as the music industry continues to change. And they have said they have no interest in taking any sort of hiatus from the music industry as they realize things wouldn’t be the same upon their return. So we wish them the best of luck in the future of their careers and hope they have continued success in the music industry.
