The Chainsmokers declared as the Dance Artist of the Year.The Chainsmokers are a duo DJ and a music producers in America that are made up of two individuals Alex pall and Andrew Taggart. Initially, Chainsmokers was made up of the former DJ Rhett Bixler but later reformed in 2012 to be an EDM DJ under the new management of Adam Alpert. Pall had taken a course in the music business and art history in the University of New York. While pall was working at an art gallery, Taggart who was an intern at Interscope records and an interested DJ with his songs was introduced to him by Alpert. When Bixler left the Chainsmokers, Taggart learnt through a guy who worked for Alpert that there was an opening at Chainsmokers. This made Taggart leave Maine to join Chainsmokers, and this is when they did their first remixes. Some of the songs that have made the Chainsmokers be known include” selfie” which was released in 2014 and was top twenty in a number of countries, ” roses” which was among the top 10 in US , ” don’t let me down” which won Grammy awards for being the best dance recording and “closer” became their first number one single song.
Recently, in January 2018, the Chainsmokers released a new song “sick boy”. The song is said to be more evocative, intoxicating and catchy than any other song they have done before. It has been able to catch the attention of both the new and the old fans. In February they released another single song ‘You Owe Me,’ which took them to the billboard for being position four under the hot 100 singles chart. In March they hit up with ‘Everybody Hates Me,’ which has over nine million views for the audio since the video has not yet been released. It was still in this month that the chain smokers received the iHeartRadio awards for being the Dance Artist of the Year, Best Collaboration and Dance Album of the Year. Their latest song is “somebody” that features Drew Love.
