The Chainsmokers Dedicate Their Billboard Music Award to the Late DJ Avicii

The Chainsmokers and Halsey linked up at this 2018 Billboard Music Awards once again to present the award for Top Hot 100 Song. Halsey was featured on The Chainsmokers smash hit “Closer” which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, allowing all three to receive the same award the year prior.

Before presenting the award to Luis Fonsi, the duo and solo singer paid tribute to Avicii, the beloved Swedish DJ, Producer & Pioneer, who sadly took his own life on April 20 of this year. He was only 28 years young. Alex Pall and Drew Taggart of the Chainsmokers described Avicii as an artist who inspired so many in the the EDM community.

No doubt, Avicii heavily influenced The Chainsmokers, since the late DJ blazed a trail for other dance & electronica DJs to aspire to have more creative freedom, and not being afraid to take risks in order to produce unique sounds while creating new waves in the music industry.

Being the trailblazing trendsetter that he was, it was no surprise when Avicii was nominated for Top Dance/Electronic Album in this past 2018 Billboard Music Awards. Even though he lost to the Chainsmokers who picked up the huge honor for their song “Memories… Do Not Open”, The Chainsmokers were gracious enough to give their award to Avicii in honor of his lifework.

Upon receiving this award Taggart stated that, “we want to dedicate this award to Avicii. …He is someone who made us believe that this is something we could do with our lives. Inspired all of us. Influenced our music and influenced pop music in general. He will be missed and I hope he has found peace.”

Being greatly talented themselves, The Chainsmokers started out 2018 racking up accolades like no other, especially with “Closer” reaching two billion views on YouTube and their second single reaching one billion in Spotify streams. But it is the fact that the duo dedicated their win to Avicii which shows just how much he inspired musicians & artist to transcend traditional boundaries established around the sounds of music.

Kim Dao Has Fun In Tokyo Disneyland’s Disney Sea

Kim Dao is one of the most popular beauty bloggers on YouTube. Interestingly, some of Dao’s most popular videos actually don’t have to do with beauty at all. That’s right, most of Kim Dao’s most interesting videos have to do with travel to Japan.

One of Dao’s more famous travel videos shows highlights from her latest trip to Tokyo Disneyland’s Disney Sea Park. This video, which was entitled “TOKYO Disney Sea | Disneyland JAPAN 東京ディズニーシー,” has already reached well over 100,000 views.

Kim Dao starts off her tour admitting it’s an extremely hot summer day in Tokyo. However, she’s determined to have one of the best days ever in the “Happiest Place on Earth” with three of her closest friends.

Dao first advises all of her viewers to get Fastpasses for all the rides you want to experience when visiting Tokyo Disneyland. She and her friends get Fastpasses for Tower of Terror first off, then they head on over to get a spicy chicken leg while waiting for their ride time to start.

After they’re all done eating, Dao and her friends get another Fastpass for the Indiana Jones Temple of the Crystal Skull ride. While waiting for this Fastpass to activate, Dao travels to the Arabian Coast section of the park and takes a ride on Jasmine’s Flying Carpets. She then goes on It’s A Small World ride and, after that, Dao goes on the Merry-Go-Round and has fun in the Little Mermaid’s Lagoon.

Later in the video, Dao’s Fastpass clears for the Tower of Terror, so she and her friends head on over to the ride. Unfortunately, Dao couldn’t film her experience on the ride, but she tells her viewers about what happened on the ride afterwards.

Dao wraps up the video showing her experience on the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea ride, getting a cocktail in a fancy restaurant, and riding the Indiana Jones Temple of the Crystal Skull.
