2 million Avicii records have been sold in the UK since his death
17 April 2019 | By Helen Ainsley

Avicii's dance anthems are still in regular rotation one year on from his tragic death.

This Saturday (April 20) marks one year since the untimely death of Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, aged just 28.

Since then, almost 2 million of the Swedish DJ and producer's records have been consumed by fans Ė with 1.9m total combined sales across all his singles and albums, including equivalent streaming sales.

Aviciiís unmistakable dance anthems originally took the world by storm in the early 2010ís, with his tracks still regularly spun in clubs across the globe.

During his life, Avicii had two UK Number 1 singles with Wake Me Up and I Could Be The One, plus a further seven Top 10s. Both of the DJ's studio albums reached the Official Albums Chart Top 10. See Avicii's full Official Charts history.

A new posthumous Avicii single SOS - featuring vocals from Aloe Blacc, who famously sang on Wake Me Up - is heading for a Top 10 debut on this weekís Official Singles Chart (April 19). His posthumous album Tim, out on on June 6, will feature a further 15 previously unreleased songs.

In the UK, Avicii's songs have notched up 239 million plays in the last 12 months, bringing his all-time streaming total to 916 million.

Wake Me Up, Aviciiís biggest single overall, continues to prove the most popular, with 310,000 combined sales this year alone, including just over 47 million streams. The EDM-country single debuted at Number 1 in 2013, staying at the top spot for three weeks and finishing as the third best-selling single that year. The songís all-time UK streams amount to 168 million.

In the week following his death, Wake Me Up made the biggest impact on the Official Singles Chart, re-entering at Number 26.

In second is Lonely Together ft. Rita Ora, released just a few months before his death, notching up 250,000 combined sales since last April including 29 million streams. His breakthrough hit Levels takes Number 3, with 193,000 combined sales.

Poignantly, Without You ft. Sandro Cavazza places fifth despite being one of his lower-ranking Top 40 singles, peaking at Number 32 in 2017. By comparison, nearly all of the songs in the Top 10 peaked at Number 6 or higher, apart from Addicted To You (10) which reached Number 14.

Meanwhile, I Could Be The One with producer Nicky Romero and featuring uncredited vocals from Noonie Bao, is in eighth. It was the producer's first Number 1 hit back in 2013, debuting at the top and spending a total of 13 weeks in the Top 40.
