The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart and Halsey snuggle up for a steamy trip down memory lane in their “Closer” music video…
This song ain’t ever getting older. As The Chainsmokers celebrate their tenth week atop the Billboard Hot 100 with their Halsey-assisted “Closer,” the pair have finally gotten around to releasing a music video for their nostalgia-ridden “not a love song.”
Find out how The Chainsmokers evolved from a “#Selfie” taking novelty to the chart topping trendsetters they are today!
The visual is a simple affair that plays on the chemistry between Drew Taggart and Halsey. First explored in their VMAs performance earlier this year, the duo sexily smolder on camera together. Playing the role of exes who get back together for a quick fling, they spend much of the video tangling in the sheets and serving looks while revisiting their earlier days as a pair.

Although they’ve kept things relatively simple, it’s likely the visual will keep the track at the top of the charts for at least another few weeks… As it stands, Alex Pall and Taggart have already tied the record for the longest run atop the charts this year. A couple more weeks, and they’ll be competing with Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men for the longest running tenure at the number one spot!
2016 has been a landmark year for the duo. After breaking out with “Roses” in 2015, Taggert and Pall have reached new heights with every release. They currently show no sings of slowing down…
Last month they teamed up with the emerald-haired Phoebe Ryan (the beloved co-writer of Glory‘s “Man on the Moon”) for their latest effort “All We Know.” The release is one of their most pop-oriented to date, and it features another lush production from the pair. Taggart is again delivering harmonies on the track, and he is evidently becoming more comfortable behind the mic.
The pair also revealed that they’d be releasing their second EP, Collage, Nov. 4. The tracklist is comprised of the songs they’ve released since 2015’s Bouquet, and will include the unreleased, XYLO-assisted “Setting Fires.”
