Alesso, a DJ and dance music producer from Stockholm, Sweden, has achieved cross-genre success, blending progressive house with pop and scoring worldwide hits in collaboration with a wide range of artists. His earliest pop hits included 2012's "Calling (Lose My Mind)" (with Sebastian Ingrosso and Ryan Tedder) and 2013's "Under Control" (with Calvin Harris and Hurts), the latter of which reached number one in the U.K. He opened for Madonna during several British and Russian dates on her 2012 MDNA Tour, and performed at major festivals such as Coachella, Creamfields, and Electric Daisy Carnival. "Heroes (We Could Be)," a 2014 single featuring Tove Lo, became his first U.S. Top 40 hit, preceding his 2015 debut full-length, Forever. His next major international hit, 2017's "Let Me Go," was a collaboration with actress Hailee Steinfeld and country duo Florida Georgia Line.
