I first came across Avicii's songs as far back as 2013 when he released his debut studio album True. I only heard a few tracks from the album though and they were really good songs, especially "Hey Brother" and "Wake Me Up.” Another great song from him that I liked was "The Nights.” I just liked and appreciated his songs from afar up until 2018 when he died. When I first heard about the sad news, it was so painful and one would think I had a personal encounter with him when he was alive. I was more pained by the fact that he committed suicide. That night, I went on to download some of his popular songs and I created a playlist for him on my phone. I listened to the songs all through the night and all the songs hit different that night. It was almost like I had never heard them before especially "The Nights" in the part where he said, "When I was sixteen, my father said you can do anything you want with your life. You just have to be willing to work hard to get it, that's when I decided that when I die, I want to be remembered for the life I lived and not the money I made", those words really pierced into my heart and changed my perception about life. That night, I cried. After listening to the songs I downloaded and I still had cravings for more of his songs, I decided to download his albums and I started with his first album True that had songs like "Wake Me Up", "Hey Brother", "You Make Me", "Lay Me Down" and so on. The Swedish man, Tim Bergling, widely known and referred to as Avicii a DJ that specialized more on the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) genre. He was a young man who had great potentials that he could not use up till he died. He rose to prominence in 2011 after he released "Levels.” A song which many people consider to be Avicii's biggest song ever and one of the greatest Electronic Dance Music of all time, after the success that came along with this song, he went on to release his first album True and this album was nothing short of his exceptional brilliance and talent. It was released on the 13th of September 2013. It debuted at number two on the UK Album Chart.
