The Chainsmokers are a group that was started in New York City in the year of 2012. They are an American production and DJ duo. Even though they got their start in 2012, their first major breakthrough was not until 2014. This article is going to look into a little about their history and also, the making of their new music video for their hit single, “Side Effects”.
Like I mentioned earlier, the Chainsmokers got started in 2012. In 2014, they had a breakthrough single hit the top 20 in several countries. In October of 2015, they had a new debut released which featured their single “Roses” and hit the top 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
Not only have the Chainsmokers had many songs released from the year 2014-now, but they have won many awards! Some of these awards include 2 American Music Awards, 7 Billboard Music Awards, and 8 Iheart Radio Music Awards. They are currently working on their fifth song of 2018, while also working on their new album.
As I mentioned earlier, they are working on the music video for their new single “Side Effects”. This video features the hit show Riverdale’s star, Camila Mendes. Mendes plays a hotel employee who at the beginning of the video, receives a call from her boss telling her she will be working through the weekend. As you can tell, Mendes is an overworked employee but instead of getting down in the dumps about having to work more she rips off her uniform and scurries through the brightly lit hotel.
The Chainsmokers have only been around for about 6 years, but they are definitely leaving their mark. Over the next few years, they are determined to go nowhere but up, and it is exciting to think about where they will be 6 years from now.
