The Chainsmokers were nominated for 16 Billboard Music Awards, and took home four titles over the weekend including Top Dance/Electronic Artist, Top Single, Top Collaboration, and Top Dance/Electronic Music song.

However, when it came down to the award for Top Dance/Electronic Album (a category in which both their Collage and Bouquet EPs were nominated), American violinist and producer Lindsey Stirling beat out the duo, as well as Flume and Kygo.

At the awards ceremony, The Chainsmokers played an acoustic performance of “Young,” the penultimate song off their debut album, Memories… Do Not Open. Watch Alex and Drew’s pyrotechnic-assisted performance below:

Hollywood’s most decorated composer, Hans Zimmer, just launched his own MasterClass, which is a feat all in its own right; but Zimmer isn’t stopping there. He’s now assembled some of today’s most gifted musicians, from online sensations to award-winning singers, to cover some of his most iconic productions for The Classics.

The Piano Guys, 2CELLOS, Leona Lewis, Tina Guo, and more are amongst the featured artists who’ve reimagined Zimmer’s creations, and to prepare for the album’s release on January 13th, you can check out Lindsey Stirling’s cover of “The Dark Knight Rises.” It’s just as cinematic as you’d expect, and comes to life with Stirling’s vibrant embellishments.

Billboard Unveils The Top Artists, Albums & Songs Of 2016

This post was originally published on this site

Partially due to the abundance of outlandish memes and unthinkable happenings, it’s easy to forget that 2016 has been loaded with some remarkable accomplishments in the realm of music. Billboard has finally released their charts for the year’s biggest songs, artists, and albums, and the findings aren’t exactly what you’d expect.

Flume finally found his way onto the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs this year, with “Never Be Like You” peaking at No. 3, and ending at No. 8 for the year. And Lindsey Stirling has gone on to surprise us all, muscling her way into the No. 1 spot for Top Dance/Electronic Album for Brave Enough, beating out even Kygo’s Cloud Nine.

The Chainsmokers have proven once more that they can’t be ignored, commanding Billboard‘s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart for a monstrous total of 39 weeks, so it’s no surprise they’ve gotten No. 6 on 2016’s Hot 100 Artists. They’ve even been dubbed Top Dance/Electronic Artist for the year, with Calvin Harris at No. 2, Major Lazer at No. 3, DJ Snake at No. 4, and Flume finishing strong at No. 5.

Additionally, all three of The Chainsmokers’ chart-toppers also appear on 2016’s year-end lists for Hot Dance/Electronic Songs: “Don’t Let Me Down” takes the number one position, “Closer” finished at number two, and “Roses” capped the year at number five. Calvin Harris’ “This Is What You Came For” finds itself in the No. 3 position, trailed by Major Lazer’s “Cold Water” at No. 4, and “Lean On” has maintained relevance for yet another year, taking the No. 10 position.

Zedd Is The Master Mind Behind These 5 Pop Songs

This post was originally published on this site

Zedd is well known for his crunchy bass, uplifting harmonies, and stunning live shows. He first welcomed success after remixing Skrillex’s “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites,” and the rest was history, as they say. With two albums under his belt, Clarity and True Colors, it’s no wonder some of the hottest pop stars have tagged him into the production ring. From Lady Gaga to Justin Bieber, Zedd has proven time and time again that he can churn out some of pop’s biggest hits with his signature sound.

The first pop crossover hit from Zedd was Justin Bieber’s “Beauty and the Beat.” Take a close listen, and you’ll hear Zedd’s unmistakeable sound bleed through the mix.

The next track is rather obvious since it includes Zedd as a feature, but it’s still a goodie worth noting. Take a listen to his track with Ariana Grande, “Break Free.”

Lindsey Stirling, the phenomenal electronic violinist, also worked with Zedd to create the hit “Love’s Just A Feeling” off her new album.

Finally, we have two tracks by Lady Gaga that boast the mark of Zedd. Just like the aforementioned tracks, these Lady Gaga productions are woven with Zedd’s sensational style and iconic sound.

Lindsey Stirling Releases Breathtaking Third Studio Album, ‘Brave Enough’

This post was originally published on this site

It’s been two years since Lindsey Stirling’s last album, 2014’s Shatter Me. Following her biggest tour yet and lots of new material being teased out, today she released her third studio album, Brave Enough.

Spanning 14 tracks, this album is decidedly more electronic than her previous two, evidenced no more clearly than with production credits from both Robert Delong and Zedd on “Prism” and “Love’s Just A Feeling,” respectively. There are also four bonus tracks not currently available on Spotify, including a collaboration with Vicetone called “Afterglow”.

Lindsey’s signature violin is obviously present on every song, and she even sings on one or two for the first time! See if you can tell which one.

Next week, Stirling is scheduled to make a number of national television appearances in support of the release including a performance in the 8AM and 10AM hours of the Today Show on Tuesday, August 23, and a performance on CONAN set for Wednesday, August 24.

This Fall, Lindsey will kick off the North American leg of her Brave Enough Tour on September 21 in San Diego, CA. The multi-city trek will feature a completely new stage show and hit major cities across the US including Nashville, Boston and Los Angeles. Tickets for all shows are on-sale now. Full routing for all dates and additional purchase information can be found at http://www.lindseystirling.com/.
