After having a massive 2016, American DJ duo, The Chainsmokers just bagged the Best Dance Recording Grammy for their single with Daya – “Don’t Let Me Down.”
The duo, comprising of Alex Pall & Drew Taggary got the better of Bob Moses’ “Tearing Me Up”, Flume’s “Never Be Like You” (featuring Kai), Riton’s “Rinse & Repeat” (featuring Kah-Lo) & Sofi Tukker’s “Drinkee” in the category for their first-ever Grammy.

The duo was also nominated for “Best New Artist” and “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” for “Closer”(featuring Halsey). However, Chance the Rapper bagged the Grammy for Best New Artist and Twenty One Pilot’s “Stressed Out” took home the Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
This Grammy puts The Chainsmokers in the same category as previous winners Janet Jackson, Cher and Madonna. Even though their fans are really happy about this win, there are some who aren’t really happy about this. Fans go on twitter to express their joy/anger. Check out some of those reactions below:
So proud of The Chainsmokers for winning their first Grammy award. Favorite group for a reason ?
