The Chainsmokers Drop Steamy 'Closer' Video Starring Drew & Halsey [WATCH]

Shortly after announcing the details of their next EP (see below), The Chainsmokers have released the official music video for their hit single "Closer" featuring Halsey.

Featuring vocals from both Halsey and Chainsmokers member Drew Taggart, "Closer" was released on July 29, 2016 via Disruptor and Columbia Records and quickly soared to the top of the charts. It was The Chainsmokers' and Halsey's first number-one single in several countries and also the The Chainsmokers' first single featuring vocals from one of the members.

"Closer" was performed live at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. Drew and Halsey's chemistry and "closeness" on stage made it one of the most talked-about performances of the night.

Their sexy chemistry is now the subject of the official music video for the single. Directed by Dano Cerny and starring Drew and Halsey as the main characters and lovers, the video tells the story of a hot and heavy couple that hits their breaking point but aren't ready to move on.

The Chainsmokers' new EP, entitled Collage, spans five tracks and is slated to arrive on November 4th. It will feature "Closer" as well as the previously released songs "Don't Let Me Down (Feat. Daya)" and "All We Know (Feat. Phoebe Ryan)."
