Popstar of the Year: Avicii


Why should Avicii be our Popstar of the Year?

Since we’ve spent a large chunk of this year humming one of his tunes without even realising, we reckon he’s got a good shot!

Avicii X You CoverThis year he’s been nominated for a Grammy and also won awards for Best Electronic Act at the mtc EMAs and Electronic Dance Music Artist at the American Music Awards.

Not that he’s sat around. This year he released his new album True, featuring the song Wake Me Up which has gone on to become the UK’s fastest selling single of 2013, topping the charts in over 20 countries!

He’s also done something really cool this year (beyond everything else we’ve already said!) – in January he created the world’s first ever “crowdsourced” song. Fans got the chance to send in basslines, melodies, vocals and he turned it into the song X You.

It’s hard to top all that!
