Avicii’s original name was Tim Bergling. He was an extremely popular Swedish DJ and a musician. Born on 8 September,1989, Avicii had begun his music career at 16 when he posted his remixes.

After that, his musical career kick-started and almost all of his creations were commercial and critical successes. However, his health problems started to appear in 2016. Avicii was suffering from stress and poor mental health for years. Eventually, in April 2018, Avicii took his own life in Oman. After that, his final album “Tim” was released in 2019 which was given great love.
