Watch Billboard Quiz Random People About 2014's Hit Music

We're putting the 'pop' in pop quiz.

At Billboard, we're pretty familiar with the hit music of 2014 -- it's kind of what we do. But we were curious how much the average person knows about the songs that defined 2014.

So Billboard's Joe Levy took to the street and asked a bunch of random people in New York's Times Square multiple choice questions about Sam Smith, Pharrell and Iggy Azalea. To see how much the average American -- or in one case, a group of Australian tourists -- knows about the Billboard Hot 100's biggest hits, check out the video below.
