Today at Capitol Music Group’s annual Capitol Congress in Los Angeles, electronic music artist, DJ and producer Marshmello received a plaque commemorating sales in excess of 5,000,000 copies of the Joytime Collective/Astralwerks single, “Happier,” in the U.S.A.
By turns poignant and exhilarating, “Happier” acknowledges the uncomfortable truth that loving someone sometimes requires we step aside so they can find happiness. Bastille frontman Dan Smith penned the song with Steve Mac.
Marshmello is re-defining today’s music industry, one hit after another. With the last year’s worth of chart-topping singles featuring collaborations with the likes of Selena Gomez, Migos, Khalid, Logic and more, the artist has clocked a staggering 2+ billion streams across Spotify alone with over 40 million monthly listeners, cementing him as the platform’s #4 Most Streamed Artist in the World.
