What one word could you use to sum up 2011 in pop? According to DJ Earworm, that word is “boom,” spoken in songs such as Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” and Katy Perry’s “Firework,” and evoked in spirit in Britney Spears’ cheerfully apocalyptic “Till The World Ends,” amongst others. And as he does every year, the mashup maestro has taken those songs and many others that made a splash this past year to make a mega-video stuffed with Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Adele, LMFAO, J-Lo, Foster the People, Lady Gaga, and Maroon 5, plus plenty more. Watch the ultimate pop mashup “United State of Pop 2011 (World Go Boom)” below.
