EDM producer Marshmello has been working on his music since 2015 and just had a landmark moment in his career. On the Billboard charts on July 7, Joytime II hit the top of the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart -- the first No. 1 album for the DJ.
That top spot was as a result of Joytime II launching with 5,000 album sales with 2,000 of those sales coming traditionally. This placed the album on top of the Dance/Electronic Album Sales list as well for the week.
This was the follow-up to his debut album Joytime, which peaked at fifth on the U.S. dance charts in 2016. Joytime II also ended up on the Billboard 200 charts as well, debuting at 165, where his debut album failed to rank at all. That debut album featured the gold-certified single "Keep it Mello."
Since that debut album, Marshmello has been keeping busy and hitting the charts with non-album songs. In 2017, he hit No. 1 on the U.S. dance charts with "Silence" featuring Khalid, a song that went double-platinum. Later that year, he released "Wolves" with Selena Gomez, which hit No. 1 on the dance charts as well and went triple-platinum.
Marshmello has released two singles so far from Joytime II with "Tell Me" hitting 15th on the dance charts and "Check This Out" reaching the 29th spot.
