"Billboard ranked "Closer" at number 29 on their "100 Best Pop Songs of 2016" list: β€œThe year's longest-running No. 1 on the Hot 100 was as predictable a smash as they come: Perfectly played duet drama, an immediately recognizable hook β€” maybe a little too instantly recognizable β€” and a Blink-182 reference that made every Millennial listening nod with begrudging respect. Overplay might've done The Chainsmokers and Halsey a temporary disservice, but just wait for the emotional rush that hits in 2025 when you're hanging in a hotel bar and hear this for the first time in years.”

"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.[2] It was released on July 29, 2016, through Disruptor Records and Columbia Records.[3] The song was written by Andrew Taggart, Ashley Frangipane, Shaun Frank, Freddy Kennett, Isaac Slade and Joe King, while the production was handled by The Chainsmokers. Musically it is an EDM 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 stayed at the top spot for 12 consecutive weeks. The Chainsmokers became the first act to have four songs ("Closer" being the fourth) that top the Dance/Electronic Songs chart, 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 went on to become the first song to spend 26 weeks in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.[4] It also became only the second song in the history of the Hot 100 chart to spend 32 weeks in the top ten of the chart.

The song was performed live for the first time at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April 2016. Halsey and The Chainsmokers performed the track live at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards as well as a remix of the song at the 2016 American Music Awards. Its music video was released on October 24, 2016.[5] It received a nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 2017 Grammy Awards." - Wikipedia
