"Don't You Worry Child" is a song performed by Swedish electronic dance group Swedish House Mafia. It is the sixth and final single released before the group broke up, featuring vocals from Swedish singer John Martin. In the United States, it is the act's second number-one single on Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, following "Save the World".[1] It received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording in the 2013 Grammy Awards, as did its predecessor, "Save the World", the previous year. The song is written in the key of B minor.[2]

History[edit]

The song was announced during the Swedish House Mafia's tour of Australia while they played at Future Music Festival 2012. They say it was made from the inspiration they took from the beauty of Australia. The title "Don't You Worry Child" was mentioned a few times, with hints from the group members themselves on their Twitter pages. When it was announced that the tour the Swedish House Mafia was about to set on would be their last, a farewell single was also announced – "Don't You Worry Child" being that single. The song had its live debut at the Swedish House Mafia's Milton Keynes Bowl concert and its radio debut on Pete Tong's BBC Radio 1 show on 10 August 2012. It was written by John Martin and Max Kennedy, and the sheet music is available to download for free as a PDF file.[3] The song contains a sample from the song "Be My World" by Italian dance act Milky.

The song was included on their tour One Last Tour, which ended in Miami where they parted ways forever.

Chart and sales performance[edit]

In the United Kingdom, "Don't You Worry Child" made its debut at number one with first week sales of 135,000 copies.[4] It sold 632,000 copies in the United Kingdom in 2012, the 13th best-selling single of that year.[5]

In the United States, the song became Swedish House Mafia's biggest hit, peaking at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it their first and only top ten single. The song has sold over 2 million copies in the United States as of March 2013,[6] and over 5.5 million copies worldwide.[7]

Music video[edit]

A music video for the song was released on 14 September 2012, filmed on location at the group's final British performance on 14 July 2012 at the National Bowl in Milton Keynes. As of June 2015, the music video has over 270 million views on YouTube.
