Avicii was the #2 Most-Searched Topic on Google in 2018

Three of the overall most-searched topics were also in the top five loss-related searches.

Google has released their annual Year in Search feature, and deaths accounted for much of 2018’s highest-trending topics. Specifically, Avicii holds the distinction of the #2 most-searched phrase on the search engine over the past year.

Avicii (real name Tim Bergling) passed away in April of this year. The Swedish DJ/producer had discontinued touring back in 2016, and his cause of death is presently suspected to have been suicide. 

Search topics for the “Loss” subcategory overlapped significantly with that of overall searches in the Year in Search 2018. Mac Miller and Stan Lee – who passed away in September and November, respectively – came in at #3 and #4 on the former list. Specific to electronic music artists, Swedish House Mafia boasts the distinction of the most searched topic.

Avicii emerged as one of EDM’s brightest stars after the runaway success of his 2011 hit single, “Levels.” The rigors of tour life took a toll on him, as detailed in a documentary titled Avicii: True Stories that come out on Netflix at the end of the year.

Another Song Avicii Worked On Before His Death Has Finally Come Out… Sort Of

The brand new album from HUMAN, IRL, is outside now. The name may sound familiar to lovers of Avicii, since we mentioned back in February that the late Swedish manufacturer co-wrote a song of theirs, “Ghost. ” With the launch of HUMAN’s new album, lovers have a peek at another song Avicii functioned on with HUMAN prior to his departure &hellip.

The two Otto Knows and Avicii functioned on the song “Love Letter” to get HUMAN ahead of the latter’so death, as evidenced by the Instagram video under.

However, likely because of the uncertain condition of this producer’s mansion after his death, the song as it appears on the album conveys no credits to Avicii (nor Otto) and sounds markedly different than the demo played in the video above.

It’s a shame rsquo & we;ll likely never get the first Avicii demo of “Love Letter,” however HUMAN’s debut album is worth the tune. It’s in the pop realm but it’s great pop and significantly electronic-influenced EDM listeners shouldn’t feel too alienated listening to it now. Test out it here.
