Avicii is one of the bright stars of the young EDM movement, but one listen to his new album True reveals that the Swedish DJ/producer has both a multitude of influences and the ability to reach out beyond what he's been known for over the past few years.

In honor of the release of True, the man born Tim Bergling is sharing an exclusive playlist with Rdio listeners called Avicii's Favorite Songs of the Moment.  Featuring artists like Jay-Z and Disclosure, as well as tracks from Avicii himself, the playlist is easily embeddable with the Rdio player:

Avicii Electrifies Dance Charts with Debut Album 'True'

Avicii attacks Billboard's Dance/Electronic Songs chart with six new entries from his new No. 1 on Dance/Electronic Albums, "True," ranging from "Hey Brother" at No. 15 to "Heart Upon My Sleeve" at No. 49. Only Daft Punk has debuted more songs in a week (12, June 8).
 
Meanwhile, Avicii ranks at No. 1 on Dance/Electronic Songs for a third consecutive week with "Wake Me Up!," which leads Dance/Electronic Digital Songs (189,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan) for a fifth week, Dance/Mix Show Airplay for a third and takes over atop Dance Streaming Songs (4.9 million U.S. streams, up 12%, according to Nielsen BDS).
 
"Wake Me Up!" was already No. 1 on Dance Club Songs for two weeks, one of only two songs this year to hold at the top; Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" is the other. Avicii's breakthrough mainstream success continues on Radio Songs (No. 7, 101 million audience impressions, up 15%, according to BDS) and on the Billboard Hot 100 (5-4).

We caught up with Avicii for an Exclusive FOX 11 DJ Behind The Scenes At the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium last October.  Watch Video Above.

    LL Cool J stays true to hip hop roots

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
