    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Faded” is a song from Zhu, an electronic musician who has been active since the beginning of 2014. As of mid-2014 Zhu has remained anonymous, asking to be judged by their music alone. A remix extended play was released on June 29, 2014. “Faded” peaked at number one on the US Dance chart.

    One of the first radio stations to pick up “Faded”, the alternative music orientated station Triple J, gave the song significant airplay which was responsible for its success in Australia. Subsequent to its success on Triple J, more mainstream stations began to play it, giving the song a larger audience. Eventually, “Faded” gained momentum internationally, becoming a club hit largely thanks to its initial success on Triple J. A black-and-white music video for the song was released on 6 May 2014. The track is nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 57th Grammy Awards.

Chart performance

    It became the third single released in 2014 to top the UK Dance Chart without topping the UK Singles Chart, the first two being “Wasted” by Tiësto featuring Matthew Koma and “Right Here” by Jess Glynne, charting at number 3.
