Avicii ranked 3rd on DJ Magazine's annual Top 100 DJs in 2012 and 2013 and ranked 6th for 2014. Avicii has been nominated twice for a Grammy Award (once for his work on "Sunshine" with David Guetta in 2012 and for his song "Levels" in 2013). Some of his best known songs are "I Could Be the One" (with Nicky Romero), "Wake Me Up!"
