7 fun things about The Chainsmokers (and how to win tickets to their Manila concert)

Are the songs “Roses,” “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Closer” on your playlist? Why, hello there, fellow Chainsmokers fan! From groundbreaking performances, to their wild acts, and now a world tour running, our Chainsmokers boys have really been very busy! I bet you also know that they’re bringing the party here in the Philippines. Now before we catch them live, check out these 7 fun facts about our favorite duo and a few of their hit tracks!

1. The Chainsmokers pre-performance ritual – Before getting onto the stage, some artists have vocal warm ups and some sweat it out, but for this duo, it’s a different scenario. Imagine them having a few drinks (or a lot in a number of shows) before they turn the stage upside down, or punch each other in the face just to hype the party monsters in them. They also drown themselves with either steak or espressos to turn their bodies up for a massive and unforgettable moment upstage!


2. The name “Chainsmokers” didn’t actually have any historical background or any sentimental meaning for them. Their name “Chainsmokers” was used just because it sounded clever for them and the domains were open. Very wise move!

3. Soundcloud was the first home of The Chainsmokers. They used to upload their tracks in Soundcloud.


4. You’ve been singing their track “Roses” wrong! Their biggest track of 2015, “Roses,” was the anthem of every gathering you could think of! But do you honestly and wholeheartedly know the lyrics of that song? Well here are some lyrics you’ve been mistakenly hearing (or singing in the shower perhaps):

Misheard Lyrics:

Take it slow, but it’s not typical

He already knows my love is fine

His heart’s of stone, his hands roam

I told him to go, but he took it hard

Taking it slow, but it’s not typical

He already knows that my love is fire

His heart was a stone, but then his hands roamed

Original Lyrics:

Taking it slow, but it’s not typical

He already knows that my love is fire

His heart was a stone, but then his hands roamed

I turned him to gold and it took him higher

5. You would think this duo was in a long-term friendship… absolutely NOT. Before all the music, the parties, and the mixing, they were total strangers to each other. According to a telephone interview they had with Up to the Sun, they were just introduced to each other by a friend of a friend! Fascinating, right?

6. A bookworm and a gameplayer come together! These two have a different side that we don’t usually get to see! Alex is actually a bookworm who loves to read novels, while Drew on the other hand loves video games, well “Call of Duty” to be exact. Well isn’t that a surprise!

7. They take inspiration from anything and everything. These hitmakers do not pick and choose the kind of music they produce. As they say, a person born out of music produces the kind of music that inspires them. They have the passion for the art and this varies from different genres and music types.
