‘Closer’ by the Chainsmokers Becomes Diamond-Certified

Posted on December 03, 2018

Two years after its official release, ‘Closer’ managed over 10 million unit shipments. This feat has made the Chainsmokers/Halsey-made single to bag a diamond certification. The news first appeared on the Instagram pages of both Halsey and the Chainsmokers after they posted photos of the plaques. By having a highly-coveted diamond single, the Chainsmokers have proved to be successful in their work.

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) had certified the song multi-platinum (seven times platinum) in March 2017. Now the radio banger has hit ten times platinum (diamond), although the RIAA are yet to update their website with this information. When Halsey and the Chainsmokers released their song, it quickly bolted to Hot 100’s top song (2016).

The dance-pop would remain in that position longer than anybody expected. In other consecutive frames, ‘Closer’ ruled the all-genre singles and became one of US history’s fourth longest-running #1 hits. It tied in that position with other blockbuster releases.

The US society does not fail to reward any significant work. With that said, ‘Closer’ has bagged a couple of awards. These awards made it earn a nomination to the Grammy’s Best Pop Duo/ Group Performance category. Unfortunately, it has not yet won any Grammy as that particular year it lost to “Stressed Out,” which was a surprise hit by Twenty One Pilots. Still, it is a Chainsmoker’s song that continues to rack up streams, radio plays, and sales.

Other than a Grammy nomination, ‘Closer’ has been the #1 longest-running hit in Billboard’s chart of Hot/ Dance/ Electronic songs up until recently. “The Middle,” a song by Grey, Maren Morris, and Zedd dethroned it a few months ago.

“Closer” is not the first song by the Chainsmokers to become a top-ten hit. The due have a handful of songs that have done quite well. Even so, “Closer” is the tune that has pushed Chainsmokers over the edge, making them true superstars. The American production/ DJ duo consists of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall. The pair creates songs in genres such as pop, electropop, and electronic dance music. They have won the Grammy’s Best Dance Recording Awards, an American Music Award, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and many Billboard Awards.
