Chainsmokers Dedicate Billboards Win to Avicii

Thousands gathered at the Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to attend the Billboard Music Awards earlier this month and it was impossible to ignore the absence of a celebrated artist.

The death of Swedish producer and DJ, Tim Bergling, better known in the EDM scene as the artist Avicii, is a tragedy that’s still affecting the music community and the Chainsmokers made sure they paid their respects to a promising young star.

While appearing on stage with pop star Halsey to hand Luis Fonsi the Top Hot 100 Song award for “Despacito,” the Chainsmokers, made up of producers Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, spoke about Avicii’s contribution to EDM as a community and how his legacy will sand as an inspiration to others. Halsey chimed in, urging those in attendance to reach out to loved ones suffering from mental illness like Avicii had.

When the Chainsmokers took the stage again, awarded for being the Top Dance/Electronic act, Taggart dedicated their win to Avicii’s memory for inspiring and influencing their music, ending with the hope that the late artist is finally at peace.

After word of his death hit social media in late April, Avicii’s family formally announced that the 28-year-old had taken his own life.

Geffen Records have yet to make a final decision as to whether or not they will make any of Avicii’s unreleased music available to the public.
