When the Chainsmokers released Memories over a year ago, they hoped to appear on the dance charts. They had no idea that their debut album would take the scene by storm. The fans loved it from the onset and the love is yet to fade. They got it to the top of the charts where it has stayed for quite some time. Memories recently took position three in the longest running number 1s.
The great feat has not kept the duo from venturing into new territories. In the last couple of months, they have treated their fans to a good number of great singles. It is no wonder that the duo continues to command a great following in the dance music industry.
The best dance labels appear on numerous charts including Billboard’s Top Dance Albums. Memories got to the top of this chart for the thirty-fourth time. The full-length album has not shown any signs of slowing down.
Gorillaz’s Demon Days are the other album that has topped the chart 34 times. Given that it was released 13 years ago, Memories has every chance of toppling it. It is only a matter of time before Chainsmokers become the sole owner of the third place.
The first appearance for Memories at the top came in April last year. The label was also leading the Billboard 200 chart at this time. It was a largely successful period for the Chainsmokers as their hits were all over the place in Top 40 Radio.
The all-genre nature of Billboard 200 ensured that the label lost its place in the top 10 a few months later. It has however not gone below position 5 in the Top Dance or Electronic Albums.
Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, The Chainsmokers duo, came into the scene in 2014 when they released their first single. Every year and challenge has provided an opportunity for growth and they have taken it in their stride. They are not relenting any time soon. Fans can keep expecting more as they hardly disappoint.
Above & Beyond, Calvin Harris and William Control have given The Chainsmokers a run for their money over the last couple of months. They still need to do more if they hope to come in the way of The Chainsmokers’ fast-rising popularity.
