Before The Chainsmokers' Mumbai concert, a list of songs that must be part of all fans' playlist
'From Roses' and 'Don't Let Me Down' to the chart-topping 'Closer', here are some songs by The Chainsmokers that every fan must listen to.
The Chainsmokers sent all their Indian fans into a frenzy after their 'don't worry' tweet in June. Everyone was eager to know when Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall would come to India, and which city they'd choose to perform in. Their Mumbai fans proved to be the luckiest, as it was later announced that this EDM-electronic band would be performing in the city on 7 September. To help you gear up for the concert, here is a playlist of songs that every fan must listen to! We're really hoping they don't let us down.
Don't worry Asia got a lot of announcements coming soon... and you too India and Australia

Taken from their debut EP Bouquet released in 2015, the song features vocals by American singer Elizabeth Mencel, also known as Rozes. The chill vibe the duo have created throughout their career is just elevated in this single, making it impossible for you to not groove to it when it is playing.
The song that catapulted the Chainsmokers to superstardom, this song details the duo's earlier days when they were still experimenting with their music. Unlike their current songs, '#Selfie' is much more upbeat and only features spoken word instead of typical lyrics. The song got even more popular because of the trend of selfies that was picking up rapidly that year. Talk about identifying and capitalising on trends!
'Don't Let Me Down' (2016)
The result of another collaboration, this time with American singer Daya, this song got the Chainsmokers a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. The song has now become a staple in nightclubs all over the world and was originally written for Rihanna, but she rejected it. No prizes for guessing who regrets that decision now!
'Something Just Like This' (2017)
No one thought it was possible, but it finally happened! The Chainsmokers did their biggest collaboration in their career till date with rock giants Coldplay to create 'Something Just Like This', which is a perfect combination of Chris Martin's vocals and the duo's mixing abilities. Seems like every fan wanted something just like this!
Probably their most popular song, 'Closer' also featured debut vocals by Chainsmokers member Andrew Taggart and guest vocals by Halsey. The song established them as serious competitors in the EDM scene, and this lyric video was the first of its kind to get a billion views on Youtube!
Is this song worth a listen? If you need a new breakup song to croon to, yes.
The Chainsmokers cracked a joke during their Asian tour that they would not bring their dog to China, taking a potshot at the Chinese people eating dogs.
The Chainsmokers have a reputation for partnering with up-and-coming talents in the pop world, but this time around it looks like they looked towards the top of the charts for help
