Some people consider it to actually be the first EDM Hot 100 chart topper since they don’t think the real one–Baauer‘s “Harlem Shake”–counts as EDM.
Either way, it’s a pretty big victory for the Chainsmokers. Not only is “Closer” topping the Hot 100, it’s also set some other records. It’s currently also number one on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, which makes the Chainsmokers the artist with the most songs ever to make it onto that list. Calvin Harris held the previous record for three songs, while the Chainsmokers now have four: “#Selfie,” “Roses,” “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Closer.”
Likewise, they have become the first pair of artists since 2013 to top the Hot 100. The last time this happened was with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘ song “Thrift Shop.”Read more to listen to “Closer”:
