#NewMusicTuesday: The Chainsmokers Kick Off 2017!

It’s the first #NewMusicTuesday of 2017— and iHeartRadio is ringing in the New Year by taking a quick look back at one of 2016’s hottest artists, The Chainsmokers!

Reaching mainstream success with their 2014 breakout hit #Selfie, The Chainsmokers - comprised of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall - established themselves as one of the biggest acts in the world this past year. The New York-based DJ duo began in February with the release of their smash hit, “Don’t Let Me Down,” followed by the much-loved single “Inside Out,” featuring Swedish sensation, Charlee.

The biggest song of The Chainsmokers’ year, hands down, was none other than “Closer”— the breezy pop jam featuring rising star Halsey that turned into the defining track of Summer 2016, reaching number one on both the US and UK charts. On top of a year filled with hit singles, The Chainsmokers also embarked on an epic cross-country tour that was punctuated in December with a series of headlining appearances on the 2016 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball tour.

Whether you’ve been following the group since 2014, or you just recently became a fan, celebrate your favorite dance tracks with us by tuning into The Chainsmokers station on iHeartRadio and kick off 2017 on the right note!
