The Chainsmokers are the newest hit sensation in the pop and dance music world. Their unique sound makes for a one-of-a-kind experience whether you are listening to their songs from home or at a concert. The Chainsmokers are made up of the production duo of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall.

Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall met each other through a mutual contact and immediately hit it off. The two began working long, strenuous hours together, often from dawn to dusk. Together, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall have created a unique sound, but now they have decided to move on to a darker tone that matches the current atmosphere of modern day American’s society.

In a recent interview the the late Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazina, the Chainsmokers went to great lengths to discuss the path they took to stardom.

“I think we both initially knew what we brought to the table,” Alex Pall said, after an interviewer asked how Pall was certain things would work out. Alex pall explained that they were both very knowledgeable of the current sound. They used this sound to target their audience and were very successful. They didn’t copy the sound though. They simply used it to find out what the mainstream audience liked and created their original sound around this music.

In one of their more later songs, “Closer,” Andrew Taggart made the decision to step out from behind the soundboard and in front of the microphone. The event marked the first time one of the Chainsmokers contributed vocals to their own records. Normally the Chainsmokers simply produced the music and wrote the words; they had other artists do the vocals on all of their tracks.

Andrew Taggart performed alongside singer Halsey on the “Closer.” Alex Pall said the experience was incredible. “If you had asked us over the last year who was an artist that we wanted to work with, Halsey was number one.” Pall said.

How The Chainsmokers Are Changing Their Reputation

Home | Music Industry | How The Chainsmokers Are Changing Their Reputation

The latest musical offering from The Chainsmokers might be just as catchy as their previous singles, but the message behind the music is much deeper and offers an insight into what the artists are currently living through. To look at them from the outside, many people would assume that Alex Pall and Drew Taggart have a perfect life. With their new single Sick Boy, the duo are letting fans and critics alike know what it is like to be famous in the modern age and the issues they experience as a result.

Sick Boy talks about the perils of modern fame, including social media addiction and narcissism. Many people put forward an image of having it all together on social media channels, but they are inwardly struggling with their reality. This is equally true of famous people who seem to have it all, like The Chainsmokers. This new normal inspired the lyrics of the song.

These insightful lyrics are a different approach for The Chainsmokers, who have been known for songs that keep the party going all night long. Their first hit single #Selfie made fun of the popularity of social media among the club going set, but it did not offer much insight on the boys themselves. At this time, most of the music the duo made fell into the dance or electronica genre and focused more on the beat and music than the lyrics. With the hit singles Closer, Something Just Like This and Don’t Let Me Down, the duo became one of the most successful acts worldwide. Initially, the media reported more on the lifestyle of the duo, which include plenty of wild parties. However, with their ongoing success, the duo has now proven to be more than just a flash in the pan.

With the release of Sick Boy, fans are able to understand more about who The Chainsmokers really are and how fame has impacted them.

Desiree Perez recently met with Sir Lucian Grange who is the CEO of Universal Music Group. The meeting sparked speculations of Roc Nation selling a stake to the Universal Music Group. UMG insiders have, however, poured cold water on these claims. Roc Nation would see UMG take up a larger portion of its artists. That’s if UMG commits itself to any investment in the label. Any such deal would see Jay Z gain a lot.

Speaking of Jay Z, his $150 million mega deal with Live Nation is on the final roll. It is why he is currently on the hunt for a buyer to take up a stake in his record label. With just one year remaining, either Live Nation or the rapper will have to sell their stakes to each other. If not, they will buy the entire company. Live Nation, however, would like to maintain a working relationship with Jay Z on the touring front. Addition article to read on pagesix.com.
