Life of Avicii
Avicii first came into the spotlight when his 2011 single ‘’Levels’’ went hit on the music scene. He was a great example of the dance music DJs who achieved the same level of prominence as their pop-star counterparts. Till date, his songs have attracted more than a billion listeners on Spotify.
The best-known song of Avicii was his 2012 ‘’Wake Me Up’’ which reached the No.4 position on the Hot 100 chart of Billboard. Avicii was also nominated for two Grammys in the best dance recording category, in 2012 and 2013.
Apart from recording music on his own, Avicii was also a well-known music producer throughout the world. So popular was his music that he produced music for the likes of Coldplay and Madonna, due to which he became one of the best-paid DJs in the world.
In 2015, for instance, Forbes released a list of the best-paid DJs in the world, in which Avicii was ranked as the six highest grosser. He earned an estimated $19 million during the same year.
However, during the time that his career was scaling new heights, Avicii was also fighting with health scares. For, in 2011, he was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and he had his appendix and gallbladder removed in 2016.
Avicii is survived by his parents; his brothers, Anton Korberg and David Bergling, and his sister, Linda Sterner.
