Over the past few years, Michael and Carissa Alvarado from the band Us The Duo have been mashing together the biggest hits of the year and compiling them into one song for listeners to enjoy. Now, they've taken 18 hits from 2017 and squeezed them all into a four minute song — and let us tell you, it's pretty perfect.

In it, they've included some of our favorite songs, such as Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You," a song that broke records and one that Sheeran performed at this year's Grammys. The Alvarados then move into Zedd and Alessia Cara's "Stay," James Arthur's "Say You Won't Let Go," Shawn Mendes's "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back," and Camila Cabello's "Havana," among others. 

Of course, they also include Luis Fonsi's "Despacito" remix, Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do," Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow," and Demi Lovato's "Sorry Not Sorry," all of which you'll certainly remember hearing this year. 

The song is arranged, sung, filmed, and edited all by Us The Duo themselves, with Michael adding in a little keyboard instrumentals and beatboxing, too.

We love listening to reminiscent mashups like this, and we're sure we'll be listening to this cover well into 2018.

"Been waiting all year for this!! You guys are amazing!" one person comments on YouTube.

"The year is not complete without Us The Duo's medley," another writes.
