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.
