Marshmello performed a medley of two of his biggest hits of the year to help close out the 2018 MTV European Music Awards. Starting out on the piano, the internationally renowned producer soon took to the stage with pop star Anne-Marie, where the two performed an acoustic version of their platinum-certified collaboration “Friends.” This performance follows a recently released acoustic version of the dance-pop crossover track.
As the medley went on, Marshmello moved stages to take up his track “Happier” alongside the band Bastille, as confetti and the collaborators’ characteristically upbeat music closed out the ceremony. Watch the full performance here. This star-studded final performance of the EMAs served as a perfect follow-up to Marshmello’s win for Best Electronic Artist.

Marshmello is on a roll of video releases after putting out soccer-themed “Stars” music video, and then releasing the video for Bastille collaboration “Happier” shortly afterwards. The “Stars” music video was a testament of hard work and a feel-good story of success, whereas the “Happier” music video is ironically a tear-jerker as the storyline shows the bond between girl and dog.
The track has sultry chords despite its title, and the music video follows a little girl through the various hardships of growing up such as getting bullied at school, but her dog is there routinely to help her through the rough times. Throughout the video, the dog ages until it’s the pup’s time to depart earth. The heart-breaking moment fades into the girl 20 years later as a mom. The scene is similar to the entrance of the video, where her father gave her the puppy, but this time her father gives a new puppy to the girl’s daughter, creating a heartwarming ending to the tear-inducing video.
On The Run II is bracketed by a pair of slow dances. OK, technically it’s bracketed by Jay-Z’s “Holy Grail” — with Beyoncé taking over Justin Timberlake’s hook duties and thrashing her hair in circles during the Nirvana interpolation — and “APESHIT,” the rousing Migos-powered lead single from the Carters’ new collaborative album Everything Is … More »

Marshmello will put the “sweet” in “bittersweet” on his latest single, “Happier.” Slated for an August 17 release, the newest offering from EDM’s jet puffed beat breaker will feature British indie pop band, Bastille.
Marshmello’s formal announcement of the single’s imminent release will hardly arrive as a surprise to some Mellogang members; Marshmello originally sparked suspicion of an incoming collaboration with Bastille in March when he tweeted that he was “playing phone tag” with the band.

Last year we wrote a song called “Happier” which we thought would be great as a collaboration. We had a lot of fun getting to work on it with Marshmello who managed to find some joy in the melancholy…

It’s not every day a song sung primarily in Spanish goes to #1 in the US. It’s not even every decade. But “Despacito,” a collaboration between Puerto Rican stars Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, has done it with a late-breaking assist from Canadian pop idol Justin Bieber.

If you like electronic music, dance music, OR EVEN electronic dance music then you are familiar with the group Bastille.
