Now, rewind to the 2013 Ultra Music Festival, where Avicii dropped this track with Aloe Blacc’s smooth vocals. Reactions were, let’s say, wild, with some folks booing. Why? ‘Cause blending bluegrass and dance music was like mixing oil and water back then. A bit too edgy for some.

Smashed Spotify records? Check! Bagged the Diamond certification by the Recording Industry Association of America? Double check! Sold 10 million certified units? Triple check! Avicii’s hit has more bling than a rapper’s chain.
