When the Chainsmokers released 2016 single “Closer” Andrew Taggart picked up the mike to sing lead vocals. This was the first time the group, formed back in 2012, attempted to become part of the humanity within their music. EDM DJ’s rely heavily on other artists to provide the human element in their work. This element comes from the songwriting, and the vocalization. EDM DJ’s rarely provide that vocalization, but in “Closer” Taggart crossed that barrier. It is no secret the duo pushes themselves to achieve new limits in their medium. Both have attested numerous times that they no longer want to just make dance music. Taggart’s vocal turn demonstrate their willingness to challenge the norms and seek a different definition for their work. In an interview Alex Pall, the other have of the successful duo, talked about their quest for identity, and how they seek to remain relevant. “We don’t want to produce albums containing a random mix of songs,” Pall stated, “Containing a couple of singles, a few good songs, some dance tracks, and possibly an interlude. We want to create an album of connected songs that form a body of work”.
The Chainsmokers became known in 2014, with their first hit single “#Selfie”. Their popularity grew almost overnight and they skyrocketed to the mainstream. The success came so fast that four years later they still have not caught up. Earlier this year they released new single “Sick Boy” which is currently gaining popularity. The song carries a darker tone than their previous work, carrying with it a real world message. The main aim of the song is at the pressure of social media, the dependence upon it, and how it steals away people’s identity. The song also references Pall and Taggart’s own frustration with oversaturation on social media, leading to a lack of privacy. The song is the first of a group, and represents the duo’s newest evolution.
The 2018 billboard music award took its tribute to the great producer and DJ through the Chainsmokers along with Halsey. Before the presentation of the Top Hot 100 song of this year to the great singer of Despacito, Luis Fonsi, the Chainsmokers stated to the thousands of audience in the building that Avicii was a great artist who inspired a lot of people. He did so by the by his ventures in the music industry as well as the contribution he made to the entire community.
Halsey added that any person who has worked with Avicii could ascertain that Avicii is among the most joyful people to work. The message was clear that it is a reminder to people to support their friends and families who might be struggling with illnesses such as mental illness.
The Chainsmokers also paid tribute to Avicii through the Top Dance act award they received that night. Taggart said that the award was dedicated to Avicii, a person who made them believe that music was something they could do forever in their lives. He also added that Avicii is an inspiration to all the people who were in the building, through the influence he brought to pop music in general. “we miss him, and I hope he has finally found peace”, said Taggart.
Avicii ended his life on April 20th at 28 years. The family of the legend later revealed that he took life. Rumours have it that the unreleased album of the star could be still released. That is according to the Geffen Records president. Geffen Records is the ultimate label of the star.
At the stage, Kelly Clarkson, The BBMAS host, took the opportunity to remember the shooting that was witnessed at Texas on Friday. He told people to take a moment of change rather than a moment of silence for them to be able to change the social evils taking over the society and affecting the beloved ones. It is excellent to understand that people are the owners of the changes they dream of and everything is on their hands.
Chainsmokers is an American production and DJ duo which consists of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall. The Chainsmokers reformation was done in 2012 under Adam Alpert as the manager. Their first performance was done in the Timeflies opening which was done in Terminal 5.
