The L.A.-based Vitamin String Quartet (VSQ) has created another impressive compilation of 2018's greatest hits. While the album will be available to purchase and stream on Friday, Dec. 7, Billboard is exclusively premiering the set one day early.
This second volume of hits comes after VSQ's release earlier in the year, which includes interpretations of Bazzi's "Mine," Drake's "God's Plan," Shawn Mendes's "In My Blood" and more. This new release will feature popular tracks from 5 Seconds of Summer, BLACKPINK, XXXTentacion, and Marshmello and others.
VSQ creative director James Curtiss shared the process of choosing songs for these compilations with Billboard, stating, "Choosing what to cover for our semi-annual comps is the most enjoyable, yet challenging part of VSQ. Fun in that the scope of pop music today is so far-reaching you’ve got so much to play with; from the lo-fi, almost gothic hip-hop in XXXTENTACION’s work, to the emotional house music at the heart of “Promises,” to the K-pop free-for-all that is BLACKPINK’s “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du."
