Deadmau5 has scored a new record this week as his collaboration with Grabbitz on “Let Go” becomes his highest charting single to date. Taken from the recently released W:/2016Album, “Let Go” served as one of the record’s best offerings and has climbed up to the number eleven spot on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic chart, a personal best for the Canadian producer.
“Let Go” has beat out previous deadmau5 offerings like “Phantoms Can’t Hang” and “Infra Turbo Pigcart Racer,” which peaked at the number sixteen and twenty spots, respectively. From December 16-22 alone, the single went on to garner 3 million streams in the US, which is an impressive feat in its own right.
W:/2016Album has had an interesting chart history so far. While “Let Go” has become deadmau5’s highest ranking single and the album that spawned it served as his third number one on the Dance/Electronic albums chart, the LP is actually his lowest charting effort to date on the Billboard Hot 200.
In other mau5 news, the producer announced earlier in the week that he intends to begin working on the follow-up to W:/2016Album as early as this month. With any luck, perhaps we’ll wind up with a new deadmau5 album before the end of 2017.
