Alex Pall is All for Chainsmokers

Collaboration was a huge part of Chainsmokers to actually be the Chainsmokers. Pall says that he knew what he and his partner was going to bring to the table and brought that. He knew that when the pair talked, their tastes were very similar when it came to musically and what it was like growing up. Then, they talked about what they were driven by and what ambitions they have and want to accomplish. They both knew that they wanted something really bad; it was mostly about what they liked musically and what they were into growing up. They both talked about how driven and ambitious they were and how badly they really wanted to create something different. The two were very observant to what was wanted by their community; they both knew what was popular or what worked and what didn’t work. The pair wanted to make a name or identity around what they believe is popular and that is what they did. Drew was a great producer and Pall had his DJ thing going on so promoting themselves was a lot easier to do. Their partnership grew until it was an everyday get together between them to get an image. Alex and his partner did not treat this like a job because it was more than that, but it was a lot of hard work. Having the same core values made them able to push each other to reach their dreams. People relate to the Chainsmokers music on a deeper level because Alex and his partner put their heart and soul into their pieces. The music industry for them is a way to push each other to the very limit of their ability, so it fits the band’s sound, image and where they want to go musically. The two discuss how they feel and put that into their songs and that kind of compassion allowed them to have great success. Alex and his partner continue to want to keep things interesting with their music and try new things always. Their goal is stay current and true to themselves always and so far they have accomplished this goal.

The Chainsmokers and Halsey’s Longevity

Recently, the famous song “Closer,” by The Chainsmokers and Halsey, has been certified diamond in the United States, meaning that at least ten million units were purchased. The song is one of the best-selling pop songs in recent history, but neither The Chainsmokers nor Halsey expected such a strong success. The achievement of becoming diamond-certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has long been a high-standing, coveted achievement.

Both musicians revealed their successes upon their Instagram pages, uploading pictures of the plaques as concrete proof of their accomplishment. The RIAA have yet to update their website with respect to the status of Halsey’s and The Chainsmoker’s achievement, but this is bound to happen soon, especially due to the two artists’ having posted evidence on social media.

No one had expected the massive success this song would soon be greeted with upon its release. Perhaps even more surprising to music listeners was just how long “Closer” would stick around in the world of popular culture and music. In nearly no time at all, the country became ablaze with endearment towards this simple, yet relatable song, and this appreciation would continue for years to come.

Aside from being beloved by everyday listeners, the song was extremely appreciated by music-centric organizations across America, having been given a Grammy nomination and a broad list of awards. Although The Chainsmokers and Halsey did not end up winning the Grammy, some of the awards “Closer” has won include the Billboard Music Award for Top Collaboration, the iHeartRadio Music Award for Dance Song of the Year, and the Myx Music Award for Favorite International Video.

Even if the success of “Closer” has started to dwindle, this is to be expected with all forms of music the public latches onto. We become invested in a piece of music, and then the music becomes tired. However, the amount of time “Closer” remained successful and popular is what makes it as enormous of an accomplishment as it remains today.

Clayton Hutson Loving the Journey

Future Plans and Hopes

There are always new opportunities to look forward to and to be prepared to take advantage of them when they appear. New technology brings with it new hope since it allows us to accomplish what needs to be done in a shorter time. It is essential to bring together live performance and technology so that the whole venue can take advantage of the present moment.

For example, the use of big screen allows those who haven’t access to the front row to still follow the concert. Some artists like to do stunts, and that requires advanced technology, but it also enhances the experience of the fans.

 

Books to Read for Inspiration

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” is an excellent book that many people can gain by reading. Sometimes the stuff we pay attention to is not the stuff that matters, and Richard Carlson gives due consideration to the fact we need to detach from the unimportant and just focus “on the big picture instead.”
