Imagine Dragons’ plush-filled ‘Radioactive’ music video has officially reached one billion views on YouTube. This marks the second time the band has reached the milestone, following their clip for ‘Thunder.’
Released in 2012 after the release of their Night Visions album, the memorable ‘Radioactive’ music video follows a stuffed animal fighting ring, complete with betting, a kingpin and an underdog who rises above the rest to bring the whole operation down and release the band from behind bars.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, Night Visions, is set for reissue on special, limited edition opaque lavender vinyl. Released through Interscope Records, the new, 180-g edition will be available from 22 February.
Imagine Dragons’ debut album, Night Visions originally appeared on 4 September 2012 in the US and on 26 March 2013 in the UK. Produced mainly by the band themselves, as well as English hip-hop producer Alex Da Kid and Brandon Darner (The Envy), the album took three years to finish, with six of the album’s tracks being previously released on multiple EPs.
Debuting at number two on the Billboard 200 in the US, Night Visions moved 83,000 copies in its first week and ultimately winning Billboard’s Top Rock Album of 2014 award. The album became the fourth best-selling album of 2013 in the US and it was nominated for the Juno Award for International Album of the Year (2014) in Canada.
Night Visions was also well received critically. Las Vegas Weekly praised the record for being “well-crafted and wildly creative, and boasts solid songwriting—three things that are sorely missing on albums by so many younger bands.”
The album has since been certified double Platinum, as well as appearing in the top ten albums in Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, and United Kingdom. In addition to signature hit ‘Radioactive, the album’s other hits ‘It’s Time’, and ‘Demons’ are also multi-million sellers.
