Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’ tops the UK charts in under two hours
Despite less than stunning initial reactions when Avicii debuted his new album at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, the young Swede has once again delivered a instant chart-topping success. “Wake Me Up,” the lead single off of Avicii’s forthcoming album True, featuring Michael Einziger and Aloe Blacc, scaled the UK charts in nearly record time, achieving number 1 status in under two hours. With the release of his full length album scheduled for this September, “Wake Me Up’s” cult-like success proves that producers can, and should, be taking greater risks with their future releases.
