There are few celebrity individuals who commit their lives and money to charitable organizations. However, the Chainsmokers are different duos who have a different perception from other celebrities in the industry. They have incorporated several philanthropic causes that makes them to support a number of charitable organizations. This means that they do not use all the income they get from their careers to enrich themselves. Here are some of the philanthropic activities that the group has been participating.
Global Citizen is a multinational organization that has different members from different parts of the world. The purpose of this charitable organization is to ensure that all the leaders around the world should ensure that they eliminate poverty by 2030. It is obvious that there are a large number of communities in different parts of the world who are experiencing extreme poverty. Engaging in activities that will eliminate poverty around the world should be a strategy that any other person should support.
The Chainsmokers don’t contribute money directly to the Global Citizens. Instead, they arrange for premium live shows where individuals pay a huge amount of money to attend to these shows. Surprisingly, the Chainsmokers don’t take the money contributed through these types of shows but they allow the money to support the activities Global Citizen. This is a good move that has helped this entity to continue towards its agenda of poverty eradication around the world.
The Chainsmokers are also engaged in another philanthropic activity that involves supporting the homeless individuals in the society. There are a large number of individuals in the United States who cannot be able to purchase or rent an apartment. These people experience hardships as they sleep outside even during the winter season. However, the music duo have been working with various organizations with the sole aim of ensuring that these people are held in various homes, especially the homeless women and children
Lastly, the Chainsmokers have also been involved in a large number of support missions such as supporting women ventures, donating to education and health charity organizations, and even providing employment opportunities to the unemployed youths and at-risk members of the society.
The Chainsmokers; a well-known American DJ and production duo, formed in 2012 but did not experience their breakthrough into fame until 2014. They erupted into the spotlight with their single #Selfie which ended up a top twenty single in several countries. From this point, Chainsmokers were on the roadmap to fame and success in the music industry.
The duo, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, went on to produce hits such as “Roses”, “Paris”, “Something Just Like This” with Coldplay, “Closer” with Halsey and “Don’t Let Me Down”. This dynamite pair of producers turned into on of the hottest new groups almost overnight. Because of their success in the music industry they began to experience pressure to recreate numerous sons that were a mixture of EDM and Top 40 pop. This would have been an easy task for such a creative duo but they team decided to take their musical creativities to a darker side. Their new release, “Sick Boy” is just the beginning of a new darker chapter of their music career. In a recent interview the Chainsmokers shared that they always try to stay current with the music they are producing. Drew Taggart went on record sharing that even though this is the first release they have had in nine months the duo’s music is still “a reflection of what’s going on in our lives and the world around us”.
The Chainsmokers express their times of frustration with the industry. During the interview with Forbes they shared how they have watched themselves become people that they do not necessarily relate too. They shared how they aspire to convey to their audience what it is like to be a part of their generations. The current single release, “Sick Boy” is greatly inspired by how we as individuals are able to relate to society via social media and how so many things are left up to interpretation by others. It is a song about putting yourself out there on social media in the best most accurate ways. Yet, still expressing how blurred some messages still are to the world.
The Chainsmokers are a DJ/Production duo that released their first album in April, 2017. They won a Grammy just out the gate with “Don’t Let Me Down” winning for Best Dance Recording. The duo, the Chainsmokers is made up of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, both of whom have a long history of working as DJs. Their love of the electronic manipulation of sound led to them deciding to unify and create their musical team.
In their interview by Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, they spoke of what makes their duo so successful. In the past, Chainsmokers has always featured other artists singing their songs. For the first time, Andrew Taggart will be singing along with up and coming artist, Halsey on their new 2018 release, “Closer”. This is a very different move for the Chainsmokers. In the past, they have worked with the vocals from Coldplay, ROSEZ, Phoebe Ryan and Daya. This is a step toward becoming recognized as artists and not simply electronic music masters.
The Chainsmokers are trying to change the view of the music industry that views them as merely electronic DJs. They want to be seen as musicians and so they are working to establish a more distinguished identity. Most people are unaware of the fact that unlike many artists with music on the billboards, the Chainsmokers collaborate with their song writers. This fact made it even less tolerable for others to see them as simply DJs. Both Pall and Taggart were aware of their own artistic growth and it wasn’t fully reflected in the old music. It was obvious in their most recent music, but it hadn’t been released. Their most recent release “Closer” is only one of those new songs revealing another layer of their musicality.
Both Alex Pall and Taggart were introduced to the electronic genre through DJing and each spent many hours DJing for a living. Loving the genre made it easy for them to collaborate on the music they loved when they decided to form the duo, Chainsmokers. They worked together non-stop for hours and days. Now, going forward, the Chainsmokers will still perform their shows live, but they will continue to add new layers as they evolve as musical artists. They will make another trip around the world, sharing their music with their 16-25 year old fans as they continue to evolve.
