Avicii & Nicky Romero’s ‘I Could Be The One’ hits 200m Spotify streams

When a promising ID now known as ‘I Could Be The One’ first surfaced in 2011, few knew the name of the track, or the identity of the producer(s) behind it, with various internet sources referring to the track as ‘F**K School‘ and later ‘NickTim’, a fusion of the two producers, Nicky Romero, and Tim Bergling (aka Avicii).

With Pete Tong premiering the hit on his BBC Radio 1 show, it soon flooded the dance community, with various DJs dropping the huge anthem in their live sets, and so, during Christmas 2012, the track was finally given an official release, with a hilarious official video accompanying the progressive whopper. 6 years on, and ‘I Could Be The One‘ has hit 200 million Spotify streams, a true testament to the abilities of Romero, and the late, great, Avicii – who sadly passed away last year in Muscat, Oman.

Still considered as one of the ultimate EDM anthems of all time to this very day, Nicky soon posted an emotional message across his Twitter page, heralding a time when both he and Avicii were just beginning their pressures. Romero added that the photo – taken during a time of ‘No Managers’ – was a simpler time for both. His words were particularly poignant considering the blame that many attached to Avicii’s former manager Ash Pournouri after the Swede’s suicide. Ash was filmed during the 2017 documentary ‘True Stories‘ saying that he would work Tim so hard, he would “die.”
