This year continues to be a bittersweet one for the music world, as, despite Avicii’s passing, he continues to receive accolades for his great music. Last week, his father accepted an award for him in Sweden for his accomplishments as an artist. Yesterday, the VMAs awarded him best Dance track for their collaboration “Lonely Together. We’re still reeling from the artist’s self-inflicted death this April and hope to see his legacy recognized even further in the coming years.

The 28-year-old Swedish DJ died four months earlier to the day on April 20. At the time, it was implied by a family statement that he had passed away from an apparent suicide. He was 28 years old. “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” his rep confirmed in an initial statement issued at the time. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time.”
