The first major commercial success came ten years later with the smash “Barcelona” with their partners Paperboys, that sent them touring all over Norway and in several other countries. In 2004 their official debut album “It's All a Madcon” became a big hit, with the single “Beggin” as their international breakthrough. The song peaked on #1 in Norway, reached top 10 in several markets, even entering the Billboard Hot 100, making a huge impact on global pop culture in general.
Soon after Madcon turned the half time performance during Eurovision Song Contest into an enormous flashmob in front of more than 200 million TV viewers in 55 countries.
Only two years later Madcon found themselves in top 5 in more than 10 countries with the monster hit «Don't Worry (feat. Ray Dalton)» featuring the American Grammy nominated singer-songwriter @Ray Dalton, well-known for his Macklemore song “Can’t Hold Us”, that reached #1 on Billboard Hot 100.
