Stars pay tribute to Avicii on social media

DJ Avicii was found dead on Friday

"God bless you Tim x (sic)" Scottish DJ Calvin wrote on Twitter.

Such sad news to hear about Avicii passing. Gone to soon. I'm devastated.

One of the most popular and successful dance artists of all time, he retired from performing in 2016 at the peak of his success, citing health reasons.

"The scene was not for me". He showed so much promise from the start and inspired a generation of electronic musicians and fans.

United States singer Charlie Puth tweeted: "Wow, I want to take a second to pay tribute to the person who actually opened my eyes as to what my productions might in the future sound like". Vegas and Ibiza memories will always be so special to me. "I took on board too much negative energy, I think", he said at the time.

It was confirmed Avicii died on April 20, 2018 in Muscat, Oman. In August of 2017 he released a 6-track EP entitled "Avicii". He won two MTV Music Awards, one Billboard Music Award and was nominated for two Grammys. His biggest hit was "Le7els".

He had also been helping to producer the upcoming Chic album after forming an "instantaneous bond" with Rodgers.

DJ Deadmau5 wrote: "My sincerest and most heartfelt condolences to the chums, followers and households of @Avicii". So Tragic. Good Bye Dear Sweet Tim.

The sudden passing of Avicii has sent many searching for the cause of death for the famed DJ, a passing that remains shrouded in mystery. "The Disco family and I offer our condolences to Avicii's family, his friends, and everyone who found their voice through his music". He followed a month later with a full-length documentary called True Stories, which was largely about his retirement. He was hospitalized in 2012 for pancreatitis, canceled an Ultra Festival appearance in 2013, and canceled his entire tour in 2014, removing his gallbladder and appendix as a result of what was reported to be heavy drinking.

"It's been a very insane journey". By 16, he was producing and a year later, he had already been signed to a label.

Having climbed to No. 4 on the Hot 100, "Wake Me Up" remains Avicii's highest charting single to date. After taking a year long hiatus, Avicii told Billboard that it was "for the first time in eight years", that he had felt "living a normal life". "It came with a price - a lot of stress a lot of anxiety for me - but it was the best journey of my life".

"Devastating news about Avicii", said Calvin Harris on Twitter, describing the Swedish musician as "a attractive soul, passionate and extremely talented with so much more to do". I send my honest condolences to his family, friends, fans and loved ones, and we will forever keep his memory and his music alive and in our hearts. It is the beginning of something new.

Avicii began to receive mainstream notoriety in 2011 when he released the Etta James-sampled track, "Levels".
