Alex Pall is one of the members of the Chainsmokers, though it was found out that he had a different member other than Andrew when the band first started. During an interview, Alex Pall told interviewers that his original partner quit the band before they really got started, which left Alex looking for a new partner. Alex’s manager introduced him to Andrew, who was also working as a DJ at the time and wanted to be a part of something bigger.
For both Alex and Andrew, music had always consumed their life and they both had similar tastes in music which allowed them to start working together right away. Little did they know that when they first started practicing together a little over six years ago that they would be one of the biggest names in the music industry today. Despite the fact that he was still in college, Andrew dropped everything and traveled from Maine so that he could meet Alex and go over the Chainsmokers. Alex and Andrew both bring a lot of creativity to the table and they were confident in their abilities together right from the beginning.
The Chainsmokers released Closer in 2016 and ever since then they have been releasing some of the biggest hits on the music billboards. Closer was also one of the very first songs that Alex and Andrew used their own vocals instead of featuring another artist as the lead vocalist. According to Alex, he feels that he has a somewhat awkward performance as the lead vocalist and will leave that job for Andrew in the future.
Not only did Closer featured Andrew Taggart as a vocalist for the first time, but it has become one of their most popular songs since the band’s creation, along with some of their other smash hits like Roses and Paris. Closer was done in collaboration with Halsey and featured Andrew and Halsey singing a duet about two people that were just starting out their lives together who are intensely in love.
