The Chainsmokers released their album “Closer” more than two years ago. The album that was the biggest hit has currently been certified diamond in the United States for more than 10 millions shipment units. The musicians broke the news on their pages on Instagram as they posted photos of their newly-minted inscriptions showing that they achieved a diamond single to their group. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) had last credited the global smash to the group as a seven times platinum. The RIAA has not updated its website to show the current diamond credited group, the Chainsmokers. Because the musicians have already talked about their success, the RIAA website is likely to update the information soon to validate the information.
During the late 2016 summer, “Closer” quickly found its way up to the top list of Hot 100 and was the ruling album for longer more than people could have predicted. Closer controlled the listing of the all-genre single for several consecutive frames. It is the longest No.1 running hit on the History of United States.
“Closer” has collected several music awards as well as making the musicians earn their first Grammy nominations. The track did not win last year’s Group/Pop Duo performance category; however, it has kept on racking up sales as well as being played on radio and streams since it was released. Moreover, “Closer” has been the longest running hit at the top of the Billboard’s electronic/Hot dance song chart until it was passed by “The Middle” by Maren Morris, Zedd, and Grey a few months ago. The Closer lost its No.1 position to Twenty One Pilots’s Stressed Out which was a surprise hit.
Before they released “Closer”, the Chainsmokers had already released some top ten hit tracks and so far made the duo to become superstars.
