The Chainsmokers have only been out for about three years, but they have had a massive amount of success in that short amount of time. They have won several awards and collaborated with a few well known artists in the process. Some of their popular hits include: “Roses” “Closer” “Something Just like This” “Don’t let me down” and “Paris.” They have collaborated with artists such as Coldplay, Daya, and Halsey. The duo group used to have other artists sing to their beats, but recently Alex started singing instead. Before the chainsmokers hit it off big, Alex and Andrew were just regular guys with a dream.
Andrew already had a small career going on with DJing. He loved it and carried a passion for it, but was afraid to make a career out of it because it seemed too fun to be considered a job. But one day, he just decided that he wanted to give it ago, and so he told his manager, and his manager introduced him to his former group member, Alex.
Alex also loved music and was interested in DJing, but he was also into production. Alex produced a couple of songs and put them on his soundcloud. He watched other DJ’s making it big, and he was inspired. He was a college student at the time when someone told him that a duo group named the Chainsmokers needed a second member. Alex lived in Maine, but when he heard about the opportunity he went straight for it and took a bus to New York to meet Andrew.
When Andrew and Alex met, they started making music instantly, and that is where the chainsmokers began. It didn’t take them long to create some of the top hits you hear on the radio today.
