Struggling musician? Guess what? The Chainsmokers, those awesome musicians who made the hit song "Closer," want to help out a struggling artist. They remember what it was like to have a hard time paying rent while trying to make it big in the music industry. So, they came up with a cool plan!

According to Billboard, The Chainsmokers are teaming up with an artist-in-residence program. This program will give one lucky musician the chance to live in a New York City apartment for a whole year. And get this, the apartment even has its own music studio! And the best part? It's all for free!

Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, the members of The Chainsmokers, have personally designed this amazing 794-square-foot apartment. It's located on 126th Street in Harlem, in a building called The Smile. They both started their careers in New York City, and they know how tough it can be to live there, especially when you're just starting out as an artist.

They even mentioned that they used to work in a tiny apartment when they were starting their journey. But now, they want to give a talented artist the opportunity to thrive by providing them with a free apartment and a music studio at The Smile for a whole year. How cool is that?

So, if you're an aspiring musician and you want to be a part of this amazing opportunity, here's what you need to do. Visit and fill out an application. Then, you have to submit a TikTok video. Show off your musical skills and creativity! If you're lucky, you might just get selected.

Oh, and don't forget to follow #TheSmileHarlem on Instagram. That's where you can find more updates and information about this awesome program. Good luck, and who knows, maybe you'll be the next artist-in-residence in New York City!
