Tabbed by Billboard Magazine as the «the next EDM superstar», Kygo has gone from bedroom producer to one of the most recognizable electronic artists on the planet in unprecedented time. Kygo established himself as a household name thanks to his widely popular remixes, sell-out shows in North America and Europe as well as headline performances at festivals including Coachella and Ultra Music Festival. He reached one billion streams faster than any other artist, and he has already amassed more than 13 billion audio and video streams combined worldwide.
His first original track «Firestone», released at the end of 2014, has now amassed more than 700 million plays on Spotify, peaking at No. 4 in the worldwide Spotify charts. Since then, Kygo has released two studio albums – «Cloud Nine» in 2016 and «Kids in Love» in 2017; and in June 2019 he remixed Whitney Houston’s cover version of Steve Winwood’s song «Higher Love» which reached No. 1 position on Billboard magazine’s Dance Club Songs charts, making it Houston’s highest-charting posthumous release to date. «Higher Love» has been streamed more than 200 million times on Spotify.
