The duo were nominated for four different awards: New Artist of the Year, Collaboration of the Year, Favorite Duo of Group and Favorite Artist – Electronic Dance Music. Their nomination in the Collaboration category was for their song with Daya, “Don’t Let Me Down.”
The Chainsmokers weren’t the only ones who took home several nominations. Drake even managed to set a record for the most nominations ever, pulling in 13 of them. The previous record was held by Michael Jackson, who received 11 nominations in 1984.
After that, Rihanna received seven nominations, Adele and Justin Bieber both got five, and, tied with the Chainsmokers, Beyonce got four nominations.
