One of the most unexpected pop hits this year came via the aptly titled indie band, fun. We Are Young, their little youth empowerment ditty that could, seemed to get on everyone’s radar, and it made its way on to Glee and had major Superbowl exposure in a Chevrolet ad. Not to mention it features the amazing Janelle Monae. But what it was lacking was those dance beats we love so much, so DJ Tripp decided to remedy that by mashing them with the still-on-fire Adele. The results make for a blend you’ll wanna sing and dance to in the spring sunshine.
And can you believe it: this is Mashup Of The Week #300! Whew! And with this, it will be the final weekly mashup. But don’t cry, as I’ll still be featured here on PopBytes every week, whether it be it a new single I’m loving, a remix, a new video, or even a new mashup. I just wanna mix it up for y’all a little, with all kinds of stuff I’m digging. So stay tuned!
