Martin Garrix Talks Usher, Ed Sheeran and His Upcoming Debut: PopCrush Interview

by | PopCrush

Martin Garrix might be one of the freshest faces in the EDM world, but his overnight surge into superstardom has already placed him among the ranks of the elite on the DJ scene. At this very moment, Garrix’s breakout hit, “Animals,” has over 556 million views on YouTube. In comparison, Miley Cyrus‘ super viral “We Can’t Stop” has 548 million. (That’s one seriously major viewership.)

After his 2013 runaway smash stormed across the world, the talented 19-year-old has since hopped in the studio with Usher (“Don’t Look Down”) and collaborated with fellow knob-twisting titans, including Tiësto (“The Only Way Is Up) and Avicii (“Waiting For Love”).

Following a massively successful set at Ultra Music Festival in Miami earlier this year, the talented Dutch DJ stopped by PopCrush studios to talk to us about “Rewind Repeat It,” his exciting collaboration with Ed Sheeran (they’re buds!), as well as working on his long awaited debut LP. Oh, and meeting some really feisty fans.
