"Closer" is a song by American DJ duo The Chainsmokers, featuring American singer Halsey. Andrew Taggart (one half of The Chainsmokers) also provides his vocals in the song. It was released on July 29, 2016 by Disruptor and Columbia Records. The song was written by Andrew Taggart, Ashley Frangipane, Shaun Frank, Fredic Kennett, Isaac Slade and Joe King, while the production was handled by The Chainsmokers. The single is an electronic dance music song with a "retro" style synthesizer in the chorus. In the United States, "Closer" became both The Chainsmokers and Halsey's first number one single on the Billboard Hot 100. The song has stayed at the top for 10 consecutive weeks so far. The Chainsmokers became the first act to have four songs ("Closer" being the fourth) that top the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, passing Calvin Harris, who held the previous record with three. Outside of the United States, "Closer" topped the charts in more than ten countries including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland and the United Kingdom, making it both The Chainsmokers' and Halsey's first number-one single in all six countries. The song was performed live for the first time at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in June 2016. Halsey and The Chainsmokers performed the track live at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. Its music video was released on October 24, 2016.
