“When I’m Gone” – hailed by Interview Magazine as “a perfect pop banger that marks a return to the dance floor for both stars,” captures Alesso and Katy Perry in conversation – went straight to No. 1 on the U.S. Dance Shazam chart, entered the top five of Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and placed in the top five on iTunes in the U.S. The song has amassed nearly 80 million combined global streams to date.
Alesso recently made his “Saturday Night Live” debut alongside Katy and a troupe of dancers performing “When I’m Gone.” Billboard said, “Surrounded by giant dancing mushrooms…[Alesso] joined in the fun, providing the propulsive house jam.” Praising the “memorable” performance, ET Online noted, “The whole thing gave off real psychedelic Alice In Wonderland vibes and took Twitter by storm.” Watch HERE.

A global maverick in the dance world, Alesso has repeatedly proven that his influence transcends boundaries and crosses over into countless genres — to that end, he’s collaborated with such eclectic artists as OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Calvin Harris, Tove Lo, Liam Payne, James Bay, Marshmello, Swedish House Mafia’s Sebastian Ingrosso, Hailee Steinfeld, Florida Georgia Line, Anitta and more. With his past hits including the platinum-certified “If I Lose Myself” and gold-certified “Under Control,” the Swedish native has also found major success with “Calling (Lose My Mind),” which topped the Billboard US Hot Dance Club Songs chart. On Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, his massive breakup anthem “Let Me Go” — a collaboration with Hailee Steinfeld and Florida Georgia Line — reached No. 9, while “Is That For Me” peaked at No. 25.
In 2020, Alesso released a pair of hit singles: “Midnight,” featuring former One Direction member Liam Payne and “THE END” with goth-pop singer/songwriter Charlotte Lawrence. He also had an explosive 2021, releasing a slew of records: kicking off with his East Asia fueled “Going Dumb (with Stray Kids & CORSAK),” he later closed the chapter to his PROGRESSO series with PROGRESSO VOL 2. Alesso then followed up with his cosmic love ballad “Chasing Stars (with Marshmello feat. James Bay),” the dynamic “Rescue Me (with Danna Paola)” from the Blade Runner Black Lotus soundtrack, and his highly-anticipated winter floor-filler “Somebody To Use.” To cap off a monumental year, he made his NFT debut with the Cosmic Genesis collection and then ended 2021 on a bang with “When I’m Gone” — his colossal collaboration with Katy Perry, primed to usher in an even greater 2022. To date, Alesso has performed at international festivals ranging from Tomorrowland to Ultra Music Festival to Electric Daisy Carnival, with his national TV experience including closing out GMA’s Summer Concert Series, performing on “The Late Show with James Corden,” taking the stage at the AMAs and making his “Saturday Night Live” debut in January 2022 with Katy Perry.
