Phoebe Ryan (Gold).
Closing out an incredible 2016, all three of The Chainsmokers' latest singles (-Closer' ft. Halsey, -Don't Let Me Down' ft. Daya and -Roses' ft.

Additionally, the duo has been nominated for four American Music Awards in the -New Artist of the Year', -Favorite Duo or Group – Pop/Rock', -Favorite Artist – EDM' and -Collaboration of the Year' categories.
Earlier this year, -Roses' (3 x Platinum) steadily climbed the charts reaching #3 on the iTunes chart and top 5 on the ARIA chart. -Don't Let Me Down' ft. Daya, which was named one of Rolling Stone's '30 Best Songs of 2016 So Far", followed, serving as Alex and Drew's second Top 5 hit on the ARIA chart (alongside -Roses'), while also accumulating nearly 400 Million streams on Spotify worldwide.
