The Chainsmokers' 'Closer' Remixes: Listen to 12 of the Best
Including future bass, Jersey club, and smooth house.
The Chainsmokers are in the midst of a big moment. The New York duo -- and Billboard’s newest cover stars -- currently have the No. 1 song in the country with “Closer,” a woozy dance-pop collaboration with Halsey that nails the fickle nature of modern-day young love and resulting heartbreak.
From Top 40 radio to the Hot 100, the reign of “Closer” is in full force, and it looks to only be getting stronger with a bubbling social media movement last seen with Baauer’s 2013 single “Harlem Shake.”
It’s no surprise, then, that producers such as Slushii are rolling out their renditions of the crossover hit in hopes of getting “closer” to its shine. Here’s a list of the best remixes of The Chainsmokers' hit song 'Closer' for your listening pleasure.
