Who needs a Now That’s What I Call Music! album when Vine has #6secondcovers? Vine’s folk-pop power couple Us the Duo stepped up their music covers game and took on 12 of 2014’s biggest hits in a mashup that clocks in at under three minutes. Relatively short, but also kinda long considering married couple Michael and Carissa Alvarado rose to fame through their six-second covers on Vine.
After racking up their follower count, they joined Republic Records this year, becoming the social media platform’s first major label signing. In addition to uploading all the covers ever (seriously, they’ve done a lot), Us the Duo released their sophomore album No Matter Where You Are this year and have been traveling internationally promoting the record (we’ve been stalking them and they’re currently en route to Singapore).
Try naming all the songs covered in their best of video below (side note: we think they left out a few of our faves, but we won’t complain since they sound so amazing), then head over to Spotify to check out their original work immediately.
Can we put in a request for the duo to sing the entire Billboard Top 40?
If you’re just getting on board, don’t get too used to all the covers for too long because Michael told BuzzFeed, “This video is our last hurrah with covers for a while.” No worries though, they just want to focus on writing and recording their third album in 2015. Can’t complain about that, right?
