It all began when The Chainsmokers, composed of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, noticed how the word selfie had become a trend and wanted to take advantage of it. They made a demo of a song containing monologue from a female clubber about taking good selfies. Inspiration came from the regular club going girls that The Chainsmokers saw on their nights out in New York City. So when they were composing the track, they wanted to incorporate the “let’s take a selfie” line in it somehow. The Chainsmokers described in an interview with The Phoenix New Times,
“Honestly, “#Selfie” is kind of a phenomenon for us. We made it and thought it was funny and put it out as an edit. Then Dim Mak wanted to buy it, and they bought it from us and put it out officially and we made a video for it. This was all just because we thought it was fun. And then the song just kind of took on a life of its own. Which is honestly really great because it’s brought in a new audience of people that listen to music that we’ve made that we’re more passionate about ”
Priyanka Chopra made India’s connection with The Chainsmokers stronger by releasing her first collaboration called ‘Erase’.
