The song topped several music charts, and this changed the music career for the duo.
A successful music career is measured in the number of records a musician has sold worldwide. The system relies on three categories in quantifying the number of albums, singles, or music videos an artist has sold.
The categories are gold, silver, and platinum. Each country or region has different minimum sale numbers for each category.
The Chainsmokers released another successful single “Roses” in 2016. This earned the group epic success because the album achieved multi-platinum in several countries. Since then, the duo has been on a success curve.
The Chainsmokers is renowned for their award-winning collaborations with Coldplay, Halsey, and Daya.
Achieving success is not as hard as maintaining it, especially in the music industry. The duo has followed up their past colossal success by releasing a new electronic dance hit titled “Sick Boy.”
The song is the first one in seven months, and it signals the onset of a new episode in the duo’s music career. As an artist, you have to grow and take your fans along with you.
The Chainsmokers have been releasing songs about love and fun, but the duo wants to take their music and their fans to the next phase.
Pall and Taggart now want their music to reflect societal issues. People have a tendency to judge persons on what they see instead of taking time to learn the true nature of individuals.
For music stars, it is even worse because more people including the media could highlight the wrong version of people. The Chainsmokers are reacting to this through their music.
Going forward, The Chainsmokers plan to work with other producers to bring a new wave of energy into their music and keep their fans dancing to the beats.
