“It’s very exciting for Gamejam to be the first game developer ever to partner with an artist well-known like Marshmello to launch an album exclusive for 24 hours within a game which has never been achieved before,” said Christian Calderon, CEO of Gamejam, in a statement. “That’s why it was important for us to capture those epic moments in Marshmello’s concerts to create a challenging yet rewarding experience around them. We hope that our innovative approach inspires more musicians to follow in Marshmello’s footsteps and bring their music to games.”

Marshmello has clocked a staggering 2-plus billion streams across Spotify alone and with over 40 million monthly listeners on the platform. He is the fourth most streamed artist in the world on Spotify. His smash-hit single “Happier” with Bastille topped the charts around the world, with cumulative streams nearing one billion.
