Ansel Elgort Enters iTunes Top 10 With EDM Track ‘Totem’

Ansel Elgort is not only a dreamy actor; he’s a dreamy musician, too!

The 20-year-old may be best known for his onscreen roles in blockbusters like ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ and ‘Divergent,’ but Ansel has got a variety of talents under his belt. When he’s not playing a quick-witted, ill-fated love interest, he’s busting out dance tracks under his DJ name Ansolo.

His new tune ‘Totem,’ created with London music producer Tom Staar, is making waves in the EDM world. The bass-driven song entered iTunes’ Top 10 Dance Chart, featuring alongside more commercially-known songs like Calvin Harris’ ‘Summer’ and DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s ‘Turn Down For What.’

The actor/DJ turned to his Twitter fans to share the news. “GUYS WE ARE F—ING # 10 ON ITUNES DANCE CHARTS!!! YESSSS!!!” he tweeted, going the all-caps route to express his excitement.

In March, Ansel spoke with the Hollywood Reporter about his budding music career and the sound he’s going for. “I just make club music, progressive house,” he explained. “My style is clubby and groovy — you can jump to it, but you don’t have to just jump to it. It’s not just really bass-heavy and hurts your ears; you move with it, and it sounds kind of tribal.”

Check out Ansel’s “clubby and groovy” track ‘Totem’ up above.
