The Chainsmokers; Setting Records

The Chainsmokers have recently released a series of new singles from their debut album Memories…Do Not Open. The album is still holding strong on the charts despite being released so long ago (approximately one year). So much so, it matched a long running record on the Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. The most popular electronic records land themselves on this chart. The Chainsmokers’ album recently hit the thirty-four consecutive week mark. There’s no sign of the album slowing down anytime soon.

Memories…Do Not Open has officially tied with the Gorillaz’s album Demon Days. That album is actually still sitting pretty on the charts. It has been thirteen years since it originally debuted. The thirty-four week record is the third highest amount of consecutive weeks on the chart. If the trend continues it looks like The Chainsmokers will end up beating the record. Leaving the Gorillaz in the dust, The Chainsmokers might be coming for the number one and two spots. There are some pretty impressive tracks on the record. Artists like Halsey got their fame from the Memories album. We can only sit and wait to find out what kind of hits are going to come from future work from The Chainsmokers.

The Chainsmokers first debut hit the charts hard and heavy. It was number one in its first week on the Top Dane / Electronic Albums chart. It seemed as though one hit was coming after another. Anytime you turned on the radio, it was part of the top forty breakdown. Memories…Do Not Open has not left the top five spots since it came out. Some pretty impressive releases have come out from other artists this past year. Nothing has touched The Chainsmokers record. Calvin Harris, William Control and Above & Beyond are all struggling to catch up. Even Avicii’s album didn’t make its way back to the top after his untimely death this year. We can only sit back and wait to see what will come of The Chainsmokers reign. This is one group that has withstood the test of time.
