The end of the year is approaching so it only makes sense that someone would create a HUGE mashup of 2012’s most popular songs, right?!
This celebratory mashup, by Daniel Kim, covers every song you sang along to in your car, with transitions that almost make you forget it is a mashup all together.
With 50-plus songs featured, the youtube video Pop Danthology 2012 has a potpouri of talent including:
Far East Movement is bring their A game with a slew of A listers, and you know what - this video has definitely earned an A plus grade because it is Awesome!!!
We could keep on gushing, but we'll spare you because we want you to witness this ASAP!!!
Ch-ch-check out the video by clicking PLAY directly (above) !!!
We knew Far East Movement could get us feeling so fly Like a G6 but their brilliant new video is hauntingly introspective!
Ch-ch-check out Little Bird, a chill but moody down-tempo track (above) that incorporates beautifully sweet vocals from Feist!!
It's the perfect soundtrack to the lovers' quarrel unfolding before us!
We're starting to think El Lay's own Asian-American quartet can do no wrong!
Want more!? FM's Dirty Bass is in stores now!
AND, not only did one of our FAVE bands Far East Movement close out the night with a killer performance, but we got to talk backstage to the Movement's KevNish on a variety of juicy topics!
KevNish dished on their recent Rock the Vote experience, the inside (surprising!) deets on touring with LMFAO, the band's bootstrap-esque rise to fame, their love for LA, AND their latest awesome sauce clubby track Turn Up The Love ft. dynamic new band Cover Drive (above)!
SO much love for Far East Movement and ALL the diverse, talented acts who made our night as smooth and special as the most decadent of chocolate truffles!
This was one night you have to SEE to BELIEVE!!!
Look at this whopper of a list of grand performers that appeared last night like The Wanted, The Saturdays, Iggy Azalea, IM5, Bella Thorne, Melanie Amaro, Rita Ora, Walk The Moon, and Far East Movement!
We're going to go ahead and deem our One Night In… Los Angeles one big sloppy success!!!
Ch-ch-check out the highlight reel of our extravaganza (above) !!!
Whoo! What a night!!
As soon as the VMAs let out, we opened the doors at The Belasco for all the shiny party people in downtown El Lay!!
But speaking of thanks, none of it could have been possible without the crazy cool sponsorship of VH1 Save the Music, Logic Disposable Electronic Cigarette, The Belasco, Redbull, Soul by Ludacris Headphones, Asahi, AQUAhydrate, and VNC Cocktails!
But just cuz the party's over doesn't mean the fun has to stop!!
Check out the supah glossy pics below to relive our latest One Night In… Los Angeles with us!! Enjoyyy!!!
