Avicii’s Posthumous Album ‘TIM’ Hits #1 On Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums Chart

Avicii’s posthumous album TIM came out June 6 and was immediately embraced by his longtime fans. It’s no surprise then that the album has catapulted up the Billboard charts in both albums and singles. The album was released on a Thursday — yet with only one day ahead of that week’s chart, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums Chart. Now that it’s had a full cycle, it takes its rightful place as the #1 album this week.

TIM joins his other two albums, True (2013) and Stories (2015) as a #1 album, making it his third in a row out of three. At the same time, Avicii hits the Hot Dance/Electronic songs every single from the album. “Heaven” hits #4, “Heart Upon My Sleeve” with Imagine Dragons grabs #14, and “Hold the Line” featuring A R I Z O N A rounds out the entries in the top 20. According to Billboard, “with all 12 of TIM‘s tracks hitting the chart, Avicii now has 42 total chart hits, the most of all acts (Guetta follows with 40).” There’s no mistake that TIM is a smash success. It’s just a shame Avicii himself isn’t here to celebrate it. Listen to the album again below.
