Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall are the group known as The Chainsmokers. Even if the name of the band isn’t immediately recognizable to you, you have probably heard one of their dozens of hit songs. “#Selfie” was released first in 2014, marking their entry into the music world. Many other hit songs followed “#Selfie,” making The Chainsmokers a success.
The Chainsmokers haven’t always been a success story though. Alex Pall, one of the original members of the group, was left abandoned by his previous partner. It wasn’t until Andrew Taggart joined the group that it became successful. Andrew Taggart is still reinventing the group.
With the release of “Closer,” Andrew Taggart took on another role for the band. He became the lead singer. In the love duet, Andrew Taggart and Halsey exchange versus, expressing the love of two young individuals who are in love. In the song, the couple talk about their relationship and the roles each other play in their lives.
In an interview, The Chainsmokers spoke highly of Halsey. Alex Pall called her incredible, complimented her voice, and had many other positive words for Halsey. He also revealed to the interviewer that Halsey was at the top of their future collaborations list.
The Chainsmokers also briefly talked about their future. The decision to move Taggart to a lead singer role means change to the live show as well. Previously, Taggart and Pall would be operating the turntables while guest vocalists would sing the songs.

Whether it is his own vocals or guest vocals, Andrew Taggart can deliver fans a better concert experience.
