Marshmello, "Alone"

Marshmello's "Alone" continues to make milestones as it officially crosses the one billion view threshold on YouTube. The video, which depicts tough times in grade school as the fictional genesis of the Marshmello project, was released on Monstercat in July 2016.

He joins his electronic peers Calvin Harris, Alan Walker and The Chainsmokers in the distinction; Major Lazer and DJ Snake were the first to break billion ground.

The puffiest of producers is also the 15th artist in YouTube history to reach 20 million subscribers, and is in fact the first electronic artist profile in that pool. The masked music maker accepted his first American Music Award earlier this month, taking home the fan-voted trophy for the year's best electronic artist.

Currently, Marshmello is making kids ugly cry with his cute, tear-jerker of a video for "Happier," a collaboration with Bastille. The song sits at No. 13 on the Hot 100, his second-highest song to date behind "Friends" with Anne-Marie, which peaked at No. 11 this summer.

Congratulations to Marshmello on all his continued success. You can check out the video for "Alone" below.
