    It’s that time of year again – DJ Earworm has released a mashup of the top charting songs this year. This time he’s doubling up on his usual efforts however, with a mashup of the Top 50 instead of the usual 25.

    This year’s take just hit YouTube, and features everything from to Adele’s record-shattering ‘Hello,’to Drake’s meme-tastic ‘Hotline Bling’.

    It starts off with an upbeat rhythm set to The Weeknd’s ‘Can’t Feel My Face,’ before slowing down to the tune of ‘Love Me Like You Do’ by Ellie Goulding. Those two songs were featured in the ’50 Shades of Grey,’ hence the  ’50 Shades of Pop’ title.

    If you’re not familiar, DJ Earworm rose to internet fame after mashing up the top 25 songs of 2008, and has produced a variant of the series for every year since.

    And if you want to take a trip down a melodic memory lane, be sure to check out the full playlist of yearly mashups.
