The Chainsmokers’ “Closer (featuring Halsey)” is now credited with over 1 billion Vevo views.
The official music video recently crossed the 100 million mark, earning the coveted “Vevo certification.” The video, which features both members of The Chainsmokers as well as Halsey, was released in late October — nearly three months after the song’s premiere.
Vevo meanwhile credits the lyric video with over 908 million views. The lyric video was released the same day the song emerged.
“Closer” spent twelve weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100; it still holds a Top 5 position. It is the biggest song of the year by some key measures and is sure to appear on Headline Planet’s forthcoming “Best Pop Hits of 2016.”
