There's no underestimating the massive appeal of the Chainsmokers' 2016 hit, "Closer."

According to NME, the duo's song reached one billion streams on Spotify, a rare achievement only matched by Drake, who hit the number late last year for "One Dance."

"This is nuts!," the duo tweeted Friday. The group is currently on the road for a massive arena tour.

Other recent tracks from the group, including "Something Just Like This," which features Coldplay, and "Paris," are only hovering in the 300 million mark. In April, we wrote about how the Chainsmokers are selling a mirage and everyone is buying.
