Halsey Scores First No. 1 Single With Chainsmokers Collab ‘Closer’

Congrats are in order for both Halsey and The Chainsmokers, who, with their powers combined, have collected their first No. 1 single on the Hot 100 chart with the new collaboration “Closer.”

As Billboard notes, “Closer” vaults 6-1 on this week’s Hot 100, hitting the top spot in just its third week on the chart. The song bumps Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” out of the No. 1 slot, and is about to blow up at radio all well: On this week’s Radio Songs chart, “Closer” zooms 35-19.

The Chainsmokers are used to the Top 10 by now—this year, they’ve scored smashes with “Roses” (No. 6 peak) and “Don’t Let Me Down” (No. 3 peak). Halsey, meanwhile, now has by far her biggest hit, with her former peak at No. 31 courtesy of her Justin Bieber collaboration “The Feeling” (her biggest solo hit, “New Americana,” reached No. 60).
