This post was originally published on this site

YouTube has become one of the most popular streaming sites in the music industry within the past several years. Used more frequently by younger people, YouTube generates upwards of 1,000,000,000 plays a day. Now, with the help of YouTube’s geocoded streaming data, analysts have generated a map that shows music popularity and culture in the United States.

Taking into consideration two of the most prominent artists in the dance-pop crossover genre, Calvin Harris and The Chainsmokers, the following maps show relative popularity in different parts of the country. If one part of a map is lighter, it doesn’t mean people there weren’t watching the artist’s videos; it just means fans were more likely to listen to a variety of other artists. The darker the map, the more plays.

Below are the maps for both the Chainsmokers and Calvin Harris, listed in order of YouTube views.

The Chainsmokers’ ‘Closer’ has now been in the Top 40 for an entire year

This post was originally published on this site

While The Chainsmokers stepped down from the Billboard Top 10 earlier this year, their reign over the musical kingdom still remains supreme as the duo’s hit-single “Closer” is now one of the biggest charting hits in music history.

Love it or hate it, “Closer,” is a serious smash hit and as of this week, has been living inside the U.S. Top 40 for an entire year.

Maintaining Top 40 status here in America is a serious feat, usually an enormous indication of an artist’s potential trajectory.  Of course, The Chainsmokers astronomical success could hardly have been predicted, as not every track that enters its realm ends up being huge, and the same goes for its artists.  It is a good indication of what’s being consumed by large populations of people, meaning it’s a pretty big deal when anything is able to even just a couple months within the area.

“Closer,” is truly the catchy pop jam that transformed The Chainsmokers from producers to superstars. The track can also be largely attributed to featured vocalist Halsey‘s rise as well. If “Closer” somehow falls out of the Top 40 next week — it did land at number 39 this week— it’s likely to not disappear from the Hot 100 entirely for quite some time.  Truthfully, it’s likely the dance track will live on the chart for another 365 1/4 rotations around the sun, if not even longer.

The Chainsmokers – Honest (SAVI Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

The Chainsmokers heartfelt original “Honest” has just received its official remix package with some very unlikely producers at the helm. The stand out on the 6 track EP goes to Los Angelean SAVI, who made a seismic impact with his recreation of Bob Marley’s “You Could Be Loved” with Marley’s daughter Cedella back in May. Since then he’s seen a steady climb from obscurity into popularity on the back of his impeccable DJ sets and keen ear. The up-and-comer flexes his production muscle on his addition to the remix pack, crafting a club ready foundation under Drew’s lovelorn lyrics.

If we’re being honest, we can’t stop playing this one.

The rest of the EP includes equally fantastic remixes from Lifelike, Rootkit, Tritonal, Gil Glaze, and Maliboux & UNKNWN.
