Get a summery sum-up of this year’s pop music so far.
2016 is half over.
To celebrate (or mourn?), popular YouTube mash-up artist, DJ Earworm, has cooked up a slinky, smooth collective of every hit on the radio over the past six months. As usual, Rihanna’s domination of popular music comes through loud and clear, she is featured on three songs in the mix. Other features include Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Desiigner and DNCE.
The mash-up brings to attention the strong R&B influence on pop this year, with most hit songs featured being mid-tempo jams paired with party-based videos featuring warmer color schemes of yellow, white, purple and red.
Summermash ’16 is DJ Earworm’s first new mix since his traditional end of year United State of Pop mash-up.
