Avicii Reenters Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Charts Following His Death

The world is still reeling from Avicii‘s untimely passing. Many fans are coping by listening to his music, so much so that he has reentered Billboard‘s Dance/Electronic Charts.

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.
