Alex Pall Explains how he met Drew Taggart – Working with Halsey

Alex Pall is one half of the popular dance music group The Chainsmokers. With the amount of content The Chainsmokers have released, the amount of hits they have had, and their record breaking chart placement, you would think The Chainsmokers have been around for decades. Actually, they have only been a duo since 2014.

Alex Pall linked up with Andrew Taggart after his previous music partner left the group. Alex Pall was working as a DJ in New York City, more of a side job than a full-out career. An art gallery was where Alex Pall was when he realized that his music was taking over his entire life. This is when Pall’s manager introduced him to his future partner, Andrew Taggart.

“I took the bus down to New York City from Maine, where I’m from, and met Alex,” Andrew Taggart said. This was four years ago. The two immediately began working from dawn til dusk together, grinding and trying to make a name for themselves. Their song “Roses” became a hit all across the world. Now, with a handful of hits under their belt, The Chainsmokers have released their newest single, “Closer.”

The song features the singer Halsey, but this isn’t out of the ordinary for a Chainsmokers song. Nearly everyone of their songs have guest singers because The Chainsmokers are a production team. “Closer” was different though. Andrew Taggart, for the first time ever, stepped out from behind the production table and moved behind the mic stand.

Alex Pall was recently asked what he thinks of Halsey and Pall responded: “She’s incredible. She’s a very cool and unique artist.” Pall credited her for have a very strong voice and a unique personality. Even though Drew Taggart was featured on the vocals of “Closer,” the song wouldn’t have become what it is without Halsey.
