The Chainsmokers tops the Billboard chart with "Roses"

Posted at January 4th, 2016 | by Karan Acharya | in

The Chainsmokers are rather well known for their top quality tracks that are made to appeal to all sorts of audiences and in June 2015, the vivacious duo was at it again with the release of the song titled “Roses”. Within days of its release the song received about 5.7 million streams and around 59,000 downloads which meant that it would go on to dethrone the dance hit of 2015, “Lean On” which maintained a commanding top spot on the Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart for a massive 23 consecutive weeks . Major Lazer and DJ Snake would have looked to break the record for the most consecutive weeks on the top spot with their track but it was not meant to be for The Chainsmokers truly had something magical in store for electronic dance music fans world wide.

Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall better known by their stage name as The Chainsmokers, began their production and DJ career with remixes of tracks by artists such as Ellie Gould and the Wanted, and also went on to release a single, by the name of “Erase,” in collaboration with Priyanka Chopra. In 2014, the duo shot to fame with the release of a track that would go on to be played at every major festival and club in the year by various fellow artists. The track was called “#Selfie” and featured artists and celebrities like Alexis Killacam, Snoop Dogg and David Hasselhoff. The track along with its peppy beats, quickly saw a steady rise in several music charts and soon went on to debut on the Billboard Hot 100 at #55, where it eventually went on to reach the top spot.

The year 2015 has evidently been a terrific one for the duo who released some wonderful music and one among which being Roses. The track featuring vocals from Rozes, also known as , Elizabeth Menzel, and is a melodious track that will be sure to keep you grooving from start to finish. With this feat of having reached the top spot yet again, The Chainsmokers also become one among just five artists to get on the chart’s top spot twice since 2013. “Roses” furthermore ranks at No. 3 on both Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs and Dance/Mix Show Airplay. These two artists sure surprised us with their work in the past year and lets hope that this year too is filled with a lot more such pleasant surprises from their end.
