“Closer” is a millennial romance anthem that celebrates youth and heartbreak. It features vocals from singer-songwriter Halsey and Chainsmokers member Andrew Taggart, marking the first time The Chainsmokers sung on their own track and the first time they’ve collaborated with Halsey.
On Twitter, the duo wrote about the meaning of the song:
This song is dedicated to anyone that hooked up with their EX and right after remember all the reasons why they broke up. .
