It’s staggering to think it’s almost three months since the release of The Chainsmokers’ ‘Closer’ and we’re only now getting the video.
Put simply, the track has been a phenomenon.
In the UK, it spent four weeks in the No.1 position and is currently spending its tenth successive week inside the UK top five.
In their native US, the track is in the No.1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the ninth consecutive week.
Here in Australia, meantime, since its debut at No.2 on the ARIA singles chart on August 14, it’s not left the top three and of those eleven weeks, it spend nine of them at No.1.
So it’s a bit puzzling that only now, with their new single ‘All We Know’ already starting to impact (it’s top ten here already) that we’re only now getting the ‘Closer’ music video.
Not that we need to feature it, mind you, as it’s already been viewed more than 4.4 million times since dropping in the early hours of this morning.
