Avicii receives posthumous Best Swedish Act bestowal at EMAs
Over half a year since Avicii‘s death, the music world continues to acknowledge the reverberative impact he left behind on the industry at large. Most recently, he has been honored with the 2018 MTV EMA (European Music Award) accolade for Best Swedish Act.
The Nov 4 award ceremony saw a lustrous lineup of live performances, including that of the merrily masked Marshmello, who was accompanied by Anne-Marie and Bastille. Halsey and Nicki Minaj also took the stage, with Camila Cabello taking home the bestowal for Best Artist.
The “Levels” producer’s April passing has eclipsed headlines worldwide. Since the surfacing of Avicii’s unreleased collaborative track “Heaven” with Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin, statements from his Geffen Records label affiliates have provided strong indications that a final Avicii album may be in the works, as the late superstar purportedly left behind hundreds of unfinished tracks.
