[YOUTUBE "kdemFfbS5H0"] 'Twas the selfie click heard 'round the world.
When the Chainsmokers, made up of Alex Pall, 28, and Andrew Taggart, 24, released their single "#Selfie," it began trending online within weeks, peaking at No. 1 on Billboard's New Release chart and the iTunes Top Dance Song Chart. It also made its way to the top 20 of the highly coveted Billboard Hot 100.
So how did this extremely catchy song come about? "I wrote '#Selfie' in my living room, which I converted into a studio after my girlfriend broke up with me," Pall tells PEOPLE. "'#Selfie' is a story of passion, love, revenge and heartbreak," he adds jokingly.
If there is one thing this duo has, it's a sense of humor. But in all seriousness, that breakup somewhat changed the course of history for them. "We used to record at Drew’s house before," says Pall. Adds Taggart: "Because she moved out, we had more room and we invested in getting a microphone and we started doing vocals. '#Selfie' was one of the first things we recorded on the mic."
