Y’all wanna hear something crazy? I’ve been writing this weekly pop column for five whole years now. It seems like just yesterday that I published the inaugural installment explaining why The Week In Pop would be a good addition to the Stereogum portfolio. As we approach the precipice of 2019, I’m fairly certain … More »
For more than a decade, DJ Earworm has been blending the year’s top songs into a massive “United States of Pop” mashup at the end of each year. He began the series in 2007, kicking off with a combo of songs from Soulja Boy, Akon, Avril Lavigne, Rihanna, Fergie, and more. It’s been 11 years since that inaugural mashup, and Earworm hasn’t slowed down in the slightest.
His 2018 edition just made its YouTube debut on December 4, highlighted by tracks from Ariana Grande, Post Malone, Zedd, Childish Gambino, Marshmello, and more. The four-minute mashup kicks off with songs from Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line, and Maroon 5 and Cardi B, before cycling through Drake‘s iconic “In My Feelings,” Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s “Finesse,” Travis Scott and Drake’s “Sicko Mode,” and dozens others.
Tiësto and Dzeko‘s collaboration with Post Malone and Preme, “Jackie Chan,” proved itself to be a particularly pervasive summer anthem, as the star-studded hit single worked its way through playlists and radio airwaves. Although the glow of festival season and its accompanying warmer temperatures have long since faded, the sun-soaked personality of the feel-good number continues to shine through the winter months, as evidenced by the song’s newfound platinum certification status. As per certification standards, the “platinum” title indicates that “Jackie Chan” has been purchased or streamed 1 million times since its arrival in May.
“Jackie Chan” follows a number of previously released platinum productions from Tiësto, including 2014’s “Red Lights” and 2010’s “Feel It In My Bones.” The platinum certification of “Jackie Chan” is as much a credit to Tiësto’s ear for electronic tunes that will resonate — and have consistently resonated — with listeners as it is a watershed moment in Dzeko’s progressing career as a solo producer.

The three South American editions of Lollapalooza have announced their respective lineups for the 2019 festival season. As in previous years, Lollapalooza coordinators will present versions of the festival in Chile, Argentina, and Brasil.

I attribute much of my love for EDM to Tiesto and Laidback Luke. The pair is both legends in their own right, and have a long history tweaking each other’s tracks. Laidback Luke’s remix of Tiesto’s ‘Flight 643′ still lives on as one of the greatest remixes of all time. Tiesto scored one of the
