The lead single “Good Things Fall Apart” with Jon Bellion remains a phenomenon.

Plus, it ascended to #4 on the Billboard Top Electronic Songs Chart in addition to going #5 at Alternative Radio as “#1 Most Added First Week”, #33 at Top 40 Radio, and #39 on the Shazam chart. At radio, it plays to a weekly audience of 11 million. YouTube also added it to the coveted trending program, “Artist on the Rise.”
ILLENIUM has quietly blossomed into one of the biggest musical forces in the world. As of 2019, his cumulative streams eclipse 2 billion in total as he regularly averages 20 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
