History After Release
Alone's music video is currently the most viewed upload on the Monstercat Uncaged YouTube channel, having over 166 million views as of March 2022, surpassing classics such as Disconnected, Surface, and Flight. It is currently the second most viewed video across all three Monstercat channels, having been surpassed by Crab Rave in October 2021. The video was also the most liked video on all three YouTube channels, until 2019 when Crab Rave surpassed it. The upload of the music video on Marshmello's YouTube channel is more popular, having reached more than 1 billion views near the end of 2018. Due to Marshmello's mainstream status, this song has introduced a fair amount of listeners around the world to Monstercat, a big help for the label. It is also the first and only Monstercat song to be certified Platinum by the RIAA.
In June 2016, it was announced that there would be a remix contest for Alone, and that the winner would have their remix released by Monstercat. On July 8th, it was announced that the future house duo MRVLZ had won the contest. The remix package, featuring Slushii, Getter, Streex, MRVLZ, Diskord and LUCA LUSH, was released on August 25, 2016.
The song was premiered during Episode 105 of the Monstercat Podcast on May 10, 2016.
Alone was still relevant around the time that Alan Walker released his single "Alone". Social media and YouTube exploded with videos and arguments seeing which was the "better Alone", prolonging the life of Marshmello song.
Marshmello is the vocalist, with his voice pitched higher.
Alone was certified Platinum in the United States in October 2017, and in Canada in April 2018.
