‘Closer’ turned Andrew Taggart’s love life and fortune. Find out how
Rising to prominence after releasing one of the most famous songs of 2016, Closer featuring Halsey, Andrew Taggart has been gaining huge public attention lately. Especially, his love life has become the talk of the town following the exotic on stage performance with Halsey during the 2016 MTV VMAs.
Andrew certainly had a beauty by his side until September of last year but is kind of playing coy with fans over his current relationship status.
Is Andrew Taggart dating Halsey secretly or is he really single?
Andrew Taggart, one-half of the famous EDM-pop duo The Chainsmokers, has been on the radar since his super-steamy performance with Halsey at the VMAs. The undeniable chemistry between the two that sparked while performing their No.1 hit, Closer, led to speculations that the pair at some point had dated or have been dating.
A couple of months after the event, the duo came up with the official music video for the single which was as erotic and sensual as their performance was and gave audiences another chance to speculate that they are in a relationship.
It is no secret that the DJ/singer was dating gorgeous Hailey Rowe until September of last year, which was confirmed by his group member Alex Pall. On 15 September 2016, during an interview on Australian talk show, Mike E & Emma, Pall stated, “Actually I still have the same girlfriend, but Drew actually just broke up with his girlfriend like two days ago.”
When asked about the performance of Taggart and Halsey, Pall said, “You know, I’m sure it had factored in… I think he felt really guilty about the fact that we’re always away and we’re doing crazy things and like there’s certain opportunities and situations that are going to be coming up that are going to put a strain on his relationship, and I think he wanted to feel guilt-free in the stuff he was doing.”
Interesting to note, Alex Pall, however, revealed that both of them have a crush on Halsey.
While Andrew’s relationship with Halsey is still not confirmed, his post in Instagram suggests that he has reunited with Haley Rowe.
Rowe’s Instagram too contains many pictures with Taggart. Recently, in January of this year, she even shared a picture of them kissing. This makes it clear that the couple has got back together.
Success filled 2016 boosted Andrew Taggart’s net worth
EDM influenced Andrew Taggart was interning in the Interscope Records before joining The Chainsmokers to fill in the place vacated by former band member, DJ Rhett Bixler. There was no looking back for the duo (Andrew and Alex Pall) after they dropped their first single #Selfie for free in 2013. It was released by Dim Mark Records.
In 2014, they released another single Kanye as a follow up to tongue-in-cheek song #Selfie which has a message urging to live like a king.
Together, Andrew and Alex have five billboard top ten songs, including the July 2016 released single Closer. The song which features famous singer Halsey charted at number one position in the USA, the UK, New Zealand, Australia, and several other countries.
Their other hits include Something Just Like This, Don’t Let Me Down, Paris and Roses. The first two songs reached number 3 and the other two reached number 6 on the Billboard chart.
The Chainsmokers has recently dropped their debut album Memories Do Not Open on 7th April. Since forming the band in 2012, this is the first time that the group has come up with a studio album. The album is 44 minutes long and comprises of 12 songs including their hit singles Paris and Something Just Like This.
Here’s a clip of their song called The One from their new album:
We put out the first song on our album today. It’s called “the one”. It’s a ballad, which is new for us, but this album is about growth, both personally and musically. I wrote the first verse of this song on a plane when I was feeling guilty about being wrapped up in my work, knowing that it was affecting my relationships. I figured if I wrote a song about it, it would remind me to seek balance. So, here it is. Shout out to the dream team @emilywarrennnn @scottharris123 for helping us tell this story
According to Forbes, the group made an estimated earning of $14 million from June 2015 to May 2016, and Andrew has solely collected an estimated net worth of $4 million by the end of 2016.
