In 2016, it did not top in the Pop Duo category/Best Group Performance category. H owever, it still got significant amount of airplay as well as registering many sales. As a matter of fact, it held No.1 position in Billboard’s Electronics Hits/Hot Dance chart for quite a while before it was overtaken by a rival hit song, “The Middle”.

The Chainsmokers had registered a lot of success by the time of release of “Closer”. A few songs had topped various hit charts. However, the release of “Closer” made them even more superstars.
