The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” Breaks Record for Most Weeks in Billboard’s Hot 100 Top Five
Wow. The Chainsmokers may be coming off their biggest collaboration to date, with Coldplay nonetheless, but this news is almost just as huge. Everyone’s favorite EDM duo’s hit song “Closer” just broke the record for most weeks spent on Billboard’s Hot 100 Top Five.

It was the second single released from their forthcoming debut album Memories… Do Not Open, which we now know will be released April 7th. Pre-order the 12-track project now now and get both the Coldplay collaboration and “Paris” instantly.
