DJ Earworm Debuts ‘United States Of Pop’ 2018 Mashup

It wouldn’t be December without this annual offering from DJ Earworm. The San Francisco-based producer, née Jordan Roseman, compiles the year’s 25 biggest hits based on Billboard to create one epic mashup. It’s a tradition that’s been going on for more than a decade now.

Unlike last year which included plenty of songs featuring a tropical or Latin vibe, this year’s group is much more eclectic which probably proved to be an obstacle for DJ Earworm. You definitely can tell. It’s not as cohesive and fluid as his past year-end wrap-ups.

Maroon 5′s “Girls Like You” sets the tone for the four-minute mix, which features two tracks each from Ariana Grande (“No Tears Left To Cry” and “Thank U, Next“) and Post Malone (“Better Now” and “Psycho”). However, the big winner in the clip is Drake who has five appearances, including his features. Cardi B also had a busy year with her “I Like It” and features on “Finesse” and “Girls Like You” making the cut.

DJ Earworm should consider making a separate mashup that includes some of my favorite artists in 2018 that didn’t make the cut including Kim Petras, Janelle Monae, Hayley Kiyoko, Pink and Troye Sivan to mention a few. Petras’ “Heart To Break” was my summer anthem!!!

Check out “United State of Pop 2018 (Turnin’ It Up)” below. It’s not my favorite from him, but still a valiant effort.
