Watch DJ Earworm’s Mashup of 2014’s Biggest Hits

DJ Earworm
Every year since 2007, DJ Earworm has taken the calendar year’s 25 biggest pop songs and combined them into one mashup titled, the “United State of Pop.” His videos have received millions of views and this year’s mashup has just been premiered by Billboard:

The California DJ/producer told the magazine: “The thing that has been most notable in the past two or three years is the decline of EDM … The ‘United State of Pop’ became this dance track from ’09 to ’12, and then starting last year, there just wasn’t enough in that genre to fully support it, so I went down-tempo. And this year, ‘Timber,’ which was popular in January, is the only popular dance track I’m dealing with. It’s definitely down-tempo, so you have to decide, how is this going to go? How am I going to maintain the energy levels while being true to the sound of the year?”
He continued: “[2014 was] dominated by these slow, ponderous songs like ‘Say Something’ and ‘All Of Me,’ and then swaggering hip-hop songs like ‘Turn Down For What,’ ‘Talk Dirty,’ and ‘Black Widow.’ Then you have totally uptempo songs like ‘Happy’ and ‘Shake It Off,’ too. It’s a little bit more diverse, and definitely softer than it’s been.”
