Almost everyone knows who the Chainsmokers are today with smash hits all across the board since they first hit the music industry back in 2015. While the Chainsmokers didn’t start out in 2015, they had only just begun producing music together as a duo a few years earlier. Both Alex and Andrew of the Chainsmokers were on their own and looking for a partner when their manager introduced them. They hit it off right away and the rest is history. The Chainsmokers have managed to become the leading artists in the pop and EDM genres thanks to their unique style and fun party vibes that connect well with the youth of the generation.
Whether it’s for one of their top hits going Diamond status or becoming the top paid artists ever in 2018, the Chainsmokers are on a steady path of success. According to the duo, they have much more coming for audiences in the future, including some new collaborations and styles of music. It just so happens that Closer, the Chainsmokers hit single that just went Diamond, was a collaboration with another artist, Halsey, who is also celebrating this recent accomplishment. As one of the longest-running number one songs ever, the Chainsmokers have their work cut out for them to overcome their best achievement yet, but they are more than up for the challenge. Ever since they skyrocketed to fame, the Chainsmokers have been working hard to produce new music on a near monthly basis.
in 2018, the Chainsmokers landed on Forbes for being the highest paid celebrities of the year with a cool 45 million dollars. That is a lot of money for sure, but it comes with a cost for the Chainsmokers as it does with anyone who works as hard as they do. Alex and Andrew are always in the studio producing new sounds or stuck traveling for tours and concerts, so they hardly have the downtime to enjoy all of their success.
