Marking their final release of 2016, The Chainsmokers have unveiled the official remix package for “Setting Fires” ft. XYLØ. The collection features new versions of the song from Blasterjaxx, Sigma, Vanic, Qulinez and Boxinbox & Lionsize.
“Setting Fires,” which Billboard called “a slow-burning sensual beat with exotic undertones,” was originally released via the duo’s ‘Collage’ EP last month. Also featured on the EP is their biggest hit of 2016, “Closer” ft. Halsey (which just broke the record for number of weeks at #1 on the Billboard Dance/Mixshow chart with 17 weeks), “Don’t Let Me Down” ft Daya, “Inside Out” ft. Charlee and “All We Know” ft. Phoebe Ryan. ‘Collage’ debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart upon release.
It was recently announced that The Chainsmokers received three Grammy® nominations in the Best New Artist, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Closer” Featuring Halsey) and Best Dance Recording (“Don’t Let Me Down” Featuring Daya) categories. Alex and Drew also recently took home the award for ‘Favorite Artist – EDM’ at the 2016 American Music Awards.
The Chainsmokers proved themselves to be the breakout story of 2016 with over 5 Billion global streams and three multiplatinum singles this year alone – “Closer” ft. Halsey (4x), “Don’t Let Me Down”(3x) and “Roses” (3x). Each track hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, with “Closer” holding the #1 spot for 12 weeks, making it the longest running #1 of 2016. The track also matched the record for longest running #1 single at Pop radio with 10 weeks atop the chart.
