Whether behind the piano in his studio or headlining a sold-out festival, Kygo quietly reaffirms his status as a prodigious talent, forward-thinking producer, dynamic DJ, and influential global superstar. The Norwegian musician born Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll first introduced himself in 2013 and quietly became one of the most ubiquitous hitmakers in the world. Amassing 15 billion cumulative global audio and video streams and 3.3 billion YouTube views by 2020, he has broken numerous streaming records. He emerged as Spotify's "Breakout Artist of 2015" powered by "Firestone
" [feat Conrad Sewell] and "Stole the Show" [feat. Parson James]—certified gold or platinum in sixteen countries. These smashes cemented him as "the fastest artist to reach 1 billion streams on Spotify." In the wake of his chart-topping 2016 full-length debut Cloud Nine, he delivered memorable performances on The Late Late Show with James
Corden, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and The Ellen
DeGeneres Show. Plus, he notably performed "Carry Me" during the Closing Ceremony of the Rio Olympics.
In 2017, he earned one of his biggest hits with the multiplatinum "It Ain't Me
" [feat. Selena
Gomez], going Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and clocking nearly 1 billion Spotify streams. He maintained his momentum on the Stargazing EP and second album, Kids In Love. The ensuing Kids In Love Tour canvased four continents and sold out arenas. He ignited "Remind Me To Forget
" [feat. Miguel] with 812 million total combined streams and views. Other collaborations include mega-hits with U2, Imagine Dragons, The Chainsmokers, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, and Chelsea Cutler. He has received acclaim from Rolling Stone, Billboard, and more.
In 2019, Kygo unleashed "Higher Love
" with Whitney Houston
and generated another 1 billion combined streams and views in addition to leaving his imprint on a classic. He heralded his 2020 third full-length album Golden Hour [Sony Music
International/Ultra Records/RCA Records] with the anthems "Like It Is
" [with Zara Larsson
& Tyga] and "I'll Wait
" [with Sasha
Sloan]. Now, Golden Hour signals Kygo's brightest moment yet.
