Why The Chainsmokers and Halsey Are Having the Best Week Ever

About two years ago The Chainsmokers and Halsey released "Closer," a song the guys wrote in the back of their tour bus that they thought their close friends might enjoy jamming out to.

Well little did they know the entire world would be jamming out to it and it has just hit an incredible milestone having just been certified Diamond.

And that is no small feat!

That is the equivalent of being 10x platinum and it’s something only 19 other bands have done in music history.

Both Halsey and The Chainsmokers shared their appreciation on social media with the guys writing: “A sincere thank you to everyone who has shared and made memories to this song over the past couple years.”

And Halsey posting: “Thank you to every single beautiful little heart that sang this song at the top of their lungs. Thank you to everyone to whom this song represents a moment a summer a year in your life. Thank you for letting us soundtrack a piece of your journey.”
