“SHAPE OF NOW” – DJ Earworm
The king of the end of the year mashup single is back with one of his strongest compilations yet. “Shape Of Now” is pure sugary sweet pop music but you can’t help getting caught up in the clever mixing job DJ Earworm pulled off this time. Like his United State of Pop records, songs flow together and the opening stanza of a song like “I Feel It Coming” by The Weeknd and Daft Punk merges into the hook from The Chainsmokers “Something Just Like This” and concludes with a bite from Katy Perry and her hit “Chained To The Rythym”. Some of these songs have been SO overplayed but in this mashup you’re hearing them in a new light and it’s ridiculously fun!
- Ed Sheeran – Shape of You
- The Chainsmokers – Paris
- The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk – I Feel It Coming
- The Chainsmokers & Coldplay – Something Just Like This
- Katy Perry – Chained to the Rhythm
- Maroon 5 feat. Future – Cold
- Kygo & Selena Gomez – It Ain’t Me
- Clean Bandit feat. Sean Paul & Anne-Marie – Rockabye
- Bruno Mars – That’s What I Like
“THE POWER” – SNAP!
Hurricane Irma took out her vengeance on the Sunshine State. Besides the huge winds that ripped palm trees out by their roots and tore roofs off, over six million Florida residents lost power for many days. They estimate some areas in Puerto Rico won’t get power back for up to six months! As power trickled back in to peoples’ homes in Florida this past week, the 90s Freestyle dance hit, “The Power” by the German dance band, group Snap! became a popular Facebook meme. “I’ve Got the power” took on new meaning when you’ve been without it for days on end. Snap! almost hit #1 with this club smash but Mariah Carey’s debut single “Vision Of Love” had a tight grip on the top of the Billboard Chart.
