Ansel Elgort has already made a splash on the big screen. But now, he’s making a name for himself in the music world.
Under the DJ name Ansolo, the Divergent actor released his new EDM track “Totem” with music producer Tom Starr on Tuesday. Since then, the bass-heavy song has entered the iTunes Top 10 Dance Chart, alongside Calvin Harris’ “Summer” and DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What.”
To give fans a preview of the song, the teen heartthrob shared a video on Instagram of himself dancing (shirtless) while his new hit plays in the background.
“In my studio raging to my newest @ansolo_music track #TOTEM which will come out on Monday!!!,” Ansel captioned the video. “Can’t wait for you all to hear the full track then! Stay tuned on my twitter on Monday for a livestream and info on how u can win one of 7 Skype calls with me! #TOTEM !!!”
Ansel recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about his growing music career.
“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,” he said to the news outlet.
