Martin Garrix Becomes Youngest to Top Beatport Charts with “Animals”
If you were anywhere near the vicinity of Las Vegas this past week, odds are that you heard Martin Garrix’s track “Animals” at some point. The single, a natural main-stage anthem with a huge synth lead and tribal drop, was played in sets across Electric Daisy Carnival and clubs across town before finally hitting the No. 1 spot on the Beatport Top 100 on Monday. This feat—achieved in one week—makes 17-year-old Garrix the youngest artist to ever hit the top spot on the chart.
