Wiz Khalifa Proves His Crossover Chops with New Remix of The Chainsmokers' 'Closer'
The rapper released his remixed version of the EDM duo’s hit single “Closer” featuring Halsey on Saturday. Earlier this month, Khalifa, 29, debuted a live version of “Closer” at the 2017 Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival in Okeechobee, Florida.
“Closer” was released in late summer 2016 ahead of the group’s November EP, Collage. As of Monday, the Chainsmokers — comprised of Drew Taggart and Alex Pall — are now tied with Leann Rimes for the record of 32 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart’s top 10.

The Chainsmokers will also embark on their Memories Tour later this year, visiting 35 North American cities between April and June.
