AVICII REENTERS BILLBOARD’S DANCE/ELECTRONIC CHARTS FOLLOWING HIS DEATH

Avicii

First, three of his albums and EPs returned to the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. His debut album True hit #1, its 7th time at #1 since 2014. His final EP AVICI (01) returned at #2, and his second album Stories returned at #4.

Meanwhile, several of Avicii’s singles returned to the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. “Wake Me Up” hit #2, “Levels” hit #4, and “Hey Brother” hit #7 in the top 10. A dozen total singles returned to the chart, with “Silhouettes” making its chart debut at #23. “Silhouettes” chart debut gives him his 30th chart entry, tying him with David Guetta for the second-most entries in the chart’s history. “Wake Me Up” is also just a week away from tying with The Chainsmokers and Halsey‘s “Closer” as the longest running #1 single on the chart.

Seven Avicii tracks also returned to the Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs chart. Notably, “Wake Me Up” returns to #2 spot with 16.4 million streams. Finally, nine Avicii tracks took up spots on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart; “Wake Me Up” hit #1 on that chart.

Avicii may be gone, but these numbers show his music will truly last forever. Plus, it’s possible Avicii ends up posthumously breaking a few Billboard records along the way.
