When they thought the “Closer” hit song had earned them enough, The Chainsmokers and Halsey were surprised by the song being certified diamond by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The song was one of its kind as it got a lot of airplay and topped many music charts. It hit a record of 10M shipments in the United States.

The Chainsmokers and Halsey took it to their instagram accounts to announce the good news. With their photos carrying minted plagues, they couldn’t hide their excitement about their new achievement. The Chainsmokers has been consistent in releasing hit songs one after another. The award-winning DJ duo had also released “Don’t Let Me Down”, “Something Just Like This” and many other hit songs. The Grammy award-winning DJ duo consists of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart.

The musicians started celebrating the new status of their song long before RIAA updated its website to the effect that the song had been certified Diamond. Prior to diamond certification, “Closer” was multiple-times platinum and over time, it rose to Diamond. Back in 2016, the hit song ruled airwaves and at the end of summer, it was among the top songs in the Hot 100 chart. The song maintained No.1 position for quite long.

In various charts, the song competed with top songs from all genres emerging on top most of the times. At one point, it maintained No.1 position for so long that it was pronounced the 4th longest-running No.1 song in the history of the United States.

2016 was a good year for The Chainsmokers and Halsey, thanks to “Closer”. They were nominated to Grammy awards more than once for the song. In fact, it opened up nomination doors for the DJ band. It recorded a lot of sales that year and was also featured in Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronics chart holding No. 1 position for a long time before it was overtaken by “The Middle”.

Before releasing “Closer” The Chainsmokers had released several hit songs and had left a footprint in the world as among the best DJs in the world. However, “Closer” came with its own set of success. On the other hand, Halsey had also proved to be a rising star but the song came with a lot of fortunes and opportunities for her.
