  • Swedish DJ Avicii has died at the age of 28

In 2015, Forbes ranked him as the sixth-highest-paid DJ on earth and estimated his annual earnings at roughly $19 million.

A cause of death was not revealed and his rep said that no further statements will be given. He responded, "Oh they've definitely influenced me a lot". Instead of liking this post or trying to comment instead write what he or his music ment to you and post something yourself.

The artist behind "Levels" and "Wake Me Up" has been reported dead. "I hope I don't make the passengers nervous". His songs have been streamed more than 1 billion times on Spotify.

Publicist Diana Baron said Friday the 28-year-old Swedish-born DJ was in Muscat, Oman, when he died.

Avicii won a number of American Music Awards, Billboard music awards and MTV Europe Music awards for his EDM work. Eight years ago, Vegas nightlife was in the beginning stages of a dramatic shift to an entirely new genre of music. Many celebrities who took inspiration from the Swedish DJ are sharing their thoughts.

Sadly, as his popularity rose, his health began to decline. Not long after, he collaborated with Carlos Santana and Wyclef on the official FIFA World Cut Anthem "We Will Find a Way".

He also helped produce Madonna's last album. It was released on October 17, 2010, in the Netherlands.

He later announced a return to the studio, and released a new self-titled EP in 2017. "From that point he just kinda started helping me out, and not really managing me yet, but then as the project and his involvement grew we signed a management agreement and that's definitely been the best career move I've made".

In early 2016, he announced his temporary retirement from touring, citing a desire to "explore other interests". "That's why I had to stop touring, because I couldn't read my emotions the right way". "Come on, Tim!,'" he said of the documentary to Rolling Stone in an interview published last September. "The whole thing was about success for the sake of success".

Model Shanina Shaik, 27, also took to social media to pay her respect to the beloved DJ along with a picture of him, with prayer hands and dove emojis. It features peers like the DJs Tiesto and David Guetta, as well as musicians Chris Martin and Nile Rodgers.
