Few artists have risen from the ashes like Illenium. His meteoric trajectory has taken him from an opener to headlining Madison Square Garden and three sold-out Red Rocks Amphitheatre shows in just three years. If that isn't enough to prove he's an artist to watch, he's now officially earned his second-ever  Gold record for his track "Good Things Fall Apart" featuring Jon Bellion. 

The track dominated from its debut being named #1 Most Added at Alternative on the radio, and came in at #13 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. It's off his recent album ASCEND, which was the Denver native's first album to hit #1 on the same publication's Dance/Electronic Albums chart. It even captured the attention of the legendary Tiësto who produced an official "Big Room Remix" of the single. "GTFA" hit home for many with nostalgic lyrics, beautiful acoustic guitar melody, and bright synth work. 

Illenium (real name Nick Miller) previously took home a Gold record for his track "Feel Good" with Gryffin featuring Daya at the beginning of this year. His aptly titled album Ascend is the perfect summary of his career. He's been vocal about his mental health struggles and battle with opiate addiction. The fact that he was able to overcome all that and rise to the top of the EDM industry is a testimant to his pure talent. If anyone deserves a Gold record, it's him.
