Marshmello to Visit Empire State Building
Earlier this week Marshmello attended the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall in NYC where his song "Silence" featuring Khalid was nominated for "Best Dance" video. Marshmello and British band Bastille also recently released the exhilarating new single "Happier."
Marshmello is re-defining today's music industry, one hit after another. With the last years' worth of chart topping singles featuring collaborations with the likes of Selena Gomez, Migos, Khalid, Logic and more, the artist has clocked a staggering 2+ billion streams across Spotify alone with over 40 million monthly listeners, cementing him as the platform's #4 Most Streamed Artist in the World.
He continued his global takeover with the summer smash "FRIENDS" with Anne-Marie. Certified platinum in the US and UK and certified triple platinum in Canada, "FRIENDS" ranked #1 on both iTunes and Shazam's worldwide charts, with over 500 million overall streams. The single climbed to #2 at Pop radio. 2017's "Wolves" ft. Selena Gomez peaked at #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and #5 at Top 40 radio and Marshmello himself is ranked #4 overall on Billboard's 2018 Dance List.
Marshmello released his highly anticipated sophomore album Joytime II, which debuted at number 1 on Billboard's top dance/electronic chart upon release in June. The album follows 2016's Joytime which landed him in the Top 5 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums, with his track "Alone" propelling his monumental success with over 110 million Spotify plays and over 1 billion views on YouTube making it certified Platinum in only one year.
Most recently, Marshmello and British band Bastille unveiled the new single "Happier." By turns poignant and exhilarating, "Happier" (Astralwerks) acknowledges the uncomfortable truth that loving someone sometimes requires we step aside so they can find happiness. Bastille frontman Dan Smith penned the song with Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran, Liam Payne, P!nk).
