How the Chainsmokers Became Two of the Best-Paid DJs Ever

“Don’t let me down.” “Closer.” “Something just like this.” “This feeling.” These names are familiar to millions of teenagers around the world, and they are probably very familiar to you as well. They are some of the most popular songs of the band “The Chainsmokers,” created by two guys who really loved electronic music and made one of the most successful names in the industry.

This EDM/Pop band was created by Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall when they met each other and realized that they had the potential to create one of the most influential bands of the genre. However, with their names appearing in the American Music Awards, Grammy Awards, and the Billboard Music Awards, they admitted that they could never have predicted the amount of positive feedback that this passionate project would receive.

Forbes has recently announced that the duo earned, in 2018, up to $45.5 Million from their biggest year yet. They were featured on Forbes’ list of highest-paid DJs in the entire world, being among stars like Steve Aoki, Diplo, and David Guetta.

Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall met each other when they had a familiar contractor. Both were already amateur DJs, and Alex Pall was even working here and there, but nothing stable or fixed. Andrew Taggart already had an account in SoundCloud where he would occasionally post self-composed tracks that had their own legion of fans and loyal listeners.

The Chainsmokers, since that time, has been among the most successful bands of recent times, and the group’s rise to the top came out of nowhere, having been in activity only since 2008.

Already in 2014, the duo received prestigious nominations from the Teen Choice Awards, and the same happened in 2016, the year where they acquired massive success in the media. It was in 2016 that The Chainsmokers won the Favorite Electronic/Dance Music Artist nomination from the American Music Awards.

Since then, they also won the Top Dance/Electronic Artist nomination from the Billboard Music Awards and the Top Dance/Electronic Song, Top Collaboration and Top Hot 100 Song as well.

The band continues to create new tracks and to win awards, with 2018 being one of the most successful years for them.
