Chainsmokers-Closer Gets the Most Sought-after Diamond CertificationNovember 6, 2018 - Author: steph
The Chainsmokers and Halsey’s smash hit “closer” has earned the Diamond certification and the singers can’t keep calm. This chart-topping song was awarded this after about two years since its release. Gaining the diamond status is no walk in the park; to attain this, it must have hit more than 10 million sales.
Both the Chainsmokers and Halsey broke the news on their Instagram pages celebrating and showing gratitude to their fans for the support. They uploaded photos holding the plaques to show their just accomplished status. In March 2017 this song earned itself seven times platinum whose certification was given by Americas Recording Industry Association (RIIA). The RIIA did not update this on their website to acknowledge that the dance-pop hit had upgraded from the multi-platinum status to the diamond one. They’ll probably do so in the future considering that the musicians have already made their great achievement known.
As from 2016’s late summer, “closer” won the hearts of many people and climbed the top Hot 100 ladder. It has remained at the top for a longer period beyond everyone’s expectations. The song continued to top among the all-genre singles placing it in the same position with other releases that are great in the music industry. “Release” has taken the fourth position as the longest-running No. 1 song in the history of United States.
Halsey and the Chainsmokers have gotten the Grammy nominations for the first time courtesy of this track. Additionally, the hit song has also won a couple of awards. Although the song didn’t do so well in 2017 in the category of the Best Pop Group Presentation, it continued to raise the number of its radio plays, streams, and sales which have finally paid off. “Closer” has been the Number one hit running on the Billboard’s Hot dance until when “The Middle” by Zedd and Maren Morris beat it a couple of months ago.
This particular hit turned the Chainsmokers to superstars bearing in mind that before the release of this song they had only collected a few top 10 hits. As for Hansley, the single has been her game changer, although she already had a big fan base and her talent looked very promising.
