Billboard and other internet media (but all based on the almighty Billboard) are reporting that Alex and Drew, The Chainsmokers, have inked a deal for reportedly over $1 million with Republic records.
The deal with Republic was signed simultaneously with the pressing and distribution deal with Steve Aoki’s DIM MAK records. Republic’s multi album deal is set to take effect once DIM MAK’s 3 song agreement is fulfilled with all of this coming together this past February just after #SELFIE’s release.
To date, “#Selfie” has been downloaded over 726,000 times (according to Nielsen SoundScan), peaking at No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has been viewed on YouTube nearly 100 million times. Billboard estimates the song has generated more than $2 million thus far.
Congratulations Alex and Drew! That’s Grade A!
