Since breaking out in a major way with their 2014 hit “#Selfie,” the guys – Drew Taggart and Alex Pall – have been on a non-stop trek to superstardom thanks to a steady stream of fantastic EDM singles, from “Kanye” to “Let You Go” to 2015′s “Roses” and “Don’t Let Me Down” with Daya, to most recently, “Closer” featuring Halsey – their first number one single on the Billboard Hot 100, which managed to hold the the top spot for 12 consecutive weeks.

The Chainsmokers are the first artists to have four songs (“Closer” being the fourth) that have topped the Dance/Electronic Songs chart, beating Calvin Harris, who held the previous record with three.

Along with being nominated for Best New Artist, Drew and Alex are up for two other awards at the 2017 Grammys, including Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Closer” and Best Dance Recording for “Don’t Let Me Down.”
