Avicii Receives Posthumous Nominations at 2020 Billboard Music Awards
DJ Snake, Illenium, and Marshmello also received nominations.
Avicii could now only exist in the collective memory of the dance music community, but his heritage and spirit refuse to fade into the mist. The late dancing music superstar, whose estate posthumously published his third studio album, Tim, has been nominated for 2 Billboard Music Awards before the show’s 2020 version.
The information arrives following Avicii’s prospective 31st birthday, as well as the finish of Suicide Prevention Week. Avicii received nominations in the categories of”Top Dance/Electronic Artist” and”Top Dance/Electronic Album.” Rounding out the list of nominees for the former group are The Chainsmokers, DJ Snake, Illenium, and Marshmello although the latter watched nods for Avicii’s Tim, The Chainsmokers’ World War Joy, Illenium’s Ascend, and Alan Walker’s Different World. In somewhat of a surprise, Marshmello also received a nomination for”Top Dance/Electronic Album” not to get Joytime III, however due to his Marshmello Fortnite Extended Set, that qualifies as a mix album. The record topped Billboard’s US Top Dance/Electronic Albums in early 2019.
Other noteworthy takeaways in the show include a shocking 16 nominations for both Post Malone, that headed the field. Lil Nas X accompanied with 13 nominations while Billie Eilish and Khalid every nabbed 12. The 2020 iteration of the Billboard Music Awardsthat was originally scheduled for April prior to being postponed because of the impact of COVID-19, will broadcast live in the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on October 14th.
