Sebastian Ingrosso On Swedish House Mafia’s Beginning — And End
Swedish House Mafia ruled the charts and airwaves last summer with their hit “Don’t You Worry Child.” Nominated for a GRAMMY as Best Dance Recording, the song was the EDM trio’s second No. 1 on Billboard‘s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart following their previous single “Save the World.”
In addition to being a hit on the dance floor, it also became the first song by a Swedish act to break into the Top 10 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 since Robyn‘s “Show Me Love” in 1997.
Sebastian Ingrosso recently sat down with New York’s 92.3 NOW (a Radio.com station) in promotion of his new solo single “Reload,” and among other topics, he talked about how the band first came together.
