Watch This Singing Couple Meld Every Single Pop Hit Of The Year Into One Infectious Medley

12.28.17 4 months ago

2017 turned out to be an exceptional year in pop music: Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” has enough staying power to remain a radio staple throughout the year, “Bodak Yellow” helped Cardi B break new ground in both pop and hip-hop, and “Feel It Still” was a huge indie rock crossover hit for Portugal. The Man.

Year-end playlists are a good way to summarize the year in music, but couple Michael and Carissa Alvarado, who perform together as Us The Duo, found another way. They combined 2017’s biggest pop hits into a single performance, with Michael on piano (and some beatboxing) and the two trading off and harmonizing on vocals. This format reduces each song to its core components, and really allows them to work together in a way that something like a mash-up may not have been able to achieve.
