His name was Tim Berling and to the world he was known as Avicii. He was considered one of the best EDM artists in the world. In April of 2018, Avicii lost his life due to self-inflicted wounds. His passing was a tremendous loss to modern music. This young man was extremely influential to modern pop music and his unique sound had also impacted the world of country music.
During the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, The Chainsmokers and Halsey honored this great legend with a posthumous award. They acknowledge DJ Avicii and all that he has done for this generation of music. This young man had accomplished so much in his short 28 years of life on Earth. The Chainsmokers even acknowledged how he influenced their music sound in terms of style, creation and song development.
The Chainsmokers have been around since 2012 and they had plenty of hits on their own hand since that time. Some of their best songs to date include Closer, Don’t Let Me Down and Paris. They have worked with various artists including Halsey, Daya and Coldwater. This group has enjoyed great success as one of the best EDM/pop groups in modern times. Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall make up the Chainsmokers.
Pall and Taggart were really shocked by the news of Avicii’s demise. They were aware that he was having health problems at such a young age, but they were probably unaware how the spotlight was affecting this young man. While Avicii was not the only young person in the entertainment world to gain fame at an early age; he did not know how to handle his success and his position as one of the most influential artists on this planet. Avicii’s international scope had put Sweden on the map in terms of EDM music and he was also helping to establish this music form in other key parts of the world.
The Chainsmokers and Halsey had to let people know about this former living EDM legend. When the Chainsmokers received an award during the Billboard ceremonies they once again honored Avicii. They had to really let the world know how important this young man was to their own lives. The Chainsmokers will never forget Avicii and all that he has done for modern music and how he touched peoples lives everywhere.
