It was during the Billboard Music Awards when the Sweden talented DJ and producer Avicii was being honored on that day which was on Sunday night. Halsey and the chainsmokers talked about Avicii. The Chainsmokers talked to thousands of people who were gathered there in Las Vegas that Avicii was an artist who brought inspiration to the people who listened to his music in many different ways. He is an artist who meant a lot about EDM community.
When Halsey talked, he said that if there was a person who worked with Avicii, he could have noted that he was a joyful guy and the tragedy was the most painful thing. He reminded everyone who was that to ensure they love their friends and loved ones who have been struggling with mental illness.
