Since the release of their double-platinum debut single ‘Cake By The Ocean’ back in 2015, DNCE have been pretty busy. Their latest single ‘Toothbrush’ has racked up nearly 40 million views on YouTube and has been a summer playlist staple, am I right?
Having already had a successful debut album and some pretty awesome singles, it didn’t come as much of a shock when they scooped up the award for ‘Best New Artist’ at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. After headlining their very own tour for their debut album ‘SWAAY’ last year, the band went on to tour alongside Selena Gomez’s’ ‘Revival Tour’. The group also headlined their very own (first) UK gig back in August, these lads really are living up to being one of the hottest bands right now.
It’s fair to say the band have given us their all and have reaped the benefits along the way, and deservedly so! They’ve continued to remain pretty selfless too which is a great quality to have, don’t you think? Giving their fans their all through music releases and performances, they’ve also become a part of numerous charity events, giving something back to the less fortunate. I took a look at some of the charities they have been a part of and what upcoming events we have to look forward to seeing and hearing.
Irie Foundation raises awareness and improves the lives of South Florida’s at-risk-youth.
Back in February, the band performed their hit ‘Cake By The Ocean’ at the charity event held on Miami Beach. The ‘LeSutra Model Volleyball Tournament’ is exactly what it suggests in the title, a volley ball tournament played between professional models. Their appearance at this event I’m sure would have enticed more people to come along to see them perform and raise money for a great cause.
amFar is one of the world’s leading non-profit organisations dedicated to the support of AIDS research, HIV prevention and treatment education.
DNCE will be featuring alongside 13 other artists on a complication album entitled ‘ The Time Is Now ‘ which is set to be released on October 7th. The band will cover 80s classic ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’, originally released by Tina Turner. All the proceeds from the album will benefit amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research.
