The Chainsmokers oust ‘Lean On’ and take #1 Billboard spot with ‘Roses’
“Lean On” is the Major Lazer and DJ Snake track that dominated 2015, and whether you enjoyed the collaboration or not, the numbers don’t lie. The infectious hit ruled the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart for 23 consecutive weeks — until now.
The Chainsmokers have taken back the crown with “Roses,” their mellow dance track with vocalist Rozes. Though “Roses” officially dropped in June, the song continues to reign through airplay, streaming, and digital downloads. This achievement marks a second win for the NYC duo, who previously topped the charts with their viral gag “#SELFIE” back in spring 2014.
