Pentatonix’ Scott and Mitch Sing Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ in Four Minutes

Singers Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi, members of the group Pentatonix, have just given Taylor Swift’s new album ‘1989’ the ‘sing the entire album in as short of a time as possible’ treatment they’re famous for, and it’s incredibly cute. So much so, it’s likely to be something Taylor herself tweets about very soon.

That’s because they’ve just uploaded a YouTube video of the two of them singing parts of every track on Taylor Swift’s brand new album — in just four minutes.

What is wonderful about what Scott and Mitch do too is they manage to get each ‘1989’ song portion to flow smoothly into the next one, and end up with a piece of work that is almost like a stand-alone song itself. In fact, if you didn’t know it was a Taylor Swift medley, you might be fooled into thinking it was.

Needless to say, the Pentatonix video is already showing signs of going viral around colleges like Stanford and my buddy Jared says it already reached 225,000 views in just the few hours since it was published.

The last time they did something similar, with Beyonce’s self-titled album at the beginning of the year, that video earned them almost six and a half million views. As Taylor is so popular, they could end up with a lot more on their latest attempt.

Pentatonix, by the way, are a group known for their largely a capella work.

The group has five members and, in the three years they have been active, they have already made four albums.

    Their latest album, created especially for Christmas, was released in October and, no, it wasn’t a four-minute album. They leave those kinds of things for their videos. Getting along these things is the way essayontime legit way things can get these things focused very well.
