Recently, the Chainsmokers and Halsey came together and released a hit song, Closer. The song was one of the biggest hits released by both the Chainsmokers and Halsey. The song was well-received by critics and the fans. It was later certified diamond in the USA after its shipments of 10 million units.
The Chainsmokers and Halsey would later break the news to their fans when they posted a picture of them posing with the plaques. The Chainsmokers and Halsey proved they now have a coveted diamond single to their names. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) last certified the international hit in March 2017 when it went to multi-platinum. Despite that, RIAA’s website is not updated to indicate the tune’s success on international playlists and earning itself a diamond status. However, things will change soon, and the RIAA will update its website now that the musicians have broken the news to their audience.
After its release, the song quickly found its way to the Hot 100 in the summer of 2016. The hit single would go on and stay on the list longer than anyone expected. The song later went on and topped all-genres singles for twelve consecutive frames, tying it with other hits as one among the longest-running number one hits in the history of the USA.
The song collected several awards. It helped both parties earn their Grammy Nominations for the first time. Even though the single did not win in any category, it continued to rack up radio play, scales and streams in the years since. The single ended up being the longest-running number one hit on the Billboard’s Hot Dance songs chart. However, Grey, Maren, and Zedd’s The Middle passed it a few months later.
Before the release of Closer, the Chainsmokers had made other hits and earned themselves several top 10 hits. However, Closer made them true superstars and pushed them over the edge. For the other party, Halsey, the song was her breakthrough hit song despite trying to prove herself as a rising singer with a huge fan base before teaming up with the Chainsmokers.
