DJ Earworm 2014 United State of Pop Video


The 25 hottest songs of 2014 have been remixed and mashed up by DJ Earworm for his annual “United State of Pop” video, which was released on Wednesday. This year’s clip features tracks from Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Iggy Azalea, Katy Perry, One Direction and more.

Earworm, who started the tradition in 2007, recently talked to Billboard about the seven-year evolution of “United State of Pop.” “The thing that has been most notable in the past two or three years is the decline of EDM,” he said of his song choices for 2014. “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.”

The deejay explained, “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 further noted 2014 was “more diverse” and “definitely softer” than previous years, pointing out that there were “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.’” Earworm added, “Then you have totally uptempo songs like ‘Happy’ and ‘Shake It Off,’ too.” Check out this year’s Top 25 songs and video below!
