Prior to announcing the winner of Top Hot 100 Song, The Chainsmokers and Halsey took the time to pay tribute to one of dance music’s most influential stars, Avicii, who tragically passed away on April 20.
“His passing was a great loss for the music world and for us,” The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart said. “He was an artist who inspired so many in so many ways, and simply put, he meant so much to us and everyone in the EDM community.”
Halsey went on to discuss the importance of mental health, emphasizing the need to support and love one another.
