The title of Illenium’s third studio album, Ascend, seems only to have predicted the rapid upward trajectory of the LP’s movement, as the project has just clocked in at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Album chart. The highly anticipated production bestowed a total of 17 brand new tracks upon Illenium listeners.
Ascend boasts hordes of high-profile features. Said The Sky, Bipolar Sunshine, X Ambassadors, Jon Bellion, and Bahari represent merely a sampling of the multifarious artists who made guest appearances on the album. Released in the time leading up to Ascend’s arrival, Illenium’s celebrated collaboration with The Chainsmokers, “Takeaway” served as a resounding precursor and already voraciously streamed highlight in the LP’s track listing.
