The Chainsmokers is a DJ duo consisting of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall. The group was formed in 2012 under the management of Adam Alpert in New York City. They started out by making remixes of indie bands. In 2012, they collaborated with Indian actress and recording artist Priyanka Chopra on the single "Erase" which was followed by "The Rookie" in early 2013.
However, it's their 2014 hit "#Selfie" that shot them to stardom. The single, which celebrated and skewered 2010s narcissism, was released for free in December 2013 and was picked up by Dim Mak Records which re-released it in January 2014 and eventually streamed it to Republic Records. The track reached No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Its music video featured cameos from Snoop Dogg and David Hasselhoff, fueling the song's viral popularity.
Shortly after announcing the cancellations, the Biebs showed up at the duo's concert and treated the crowd at the Shrine Auditorium to some of his 'Purpose' songs.READ MORE
