This American duo sings some of the top hits of 2014 in one single medley.

- Alright. Now, you got it. Sweet! Ok?
- Uh-huh

I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh oh

'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
(I) shake it off, shake it off

'Cause in a sky, cause in a sky full of stars
I think I found you

Am I wrong
For thinking that we could be something for real?

Yeah, yeah, oh

I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more

I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass
Because I'm...

Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth

I’m following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to...

Why you gotta be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too

One less, one less
Hey baby even though I hate ya!
I wanna love ya
I want you!

When I am with you, there's no place I'd rather be
N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be
N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I'd rather be

- Ha ha ha
- Baby, you liked that one? Should like that one.
- That was cute.
- Thank you.

YOU GOT IT= It's ready (for you); it's working alright (for you).

SWEET!= (exclamation) Very good, nice, cute; I love it.

UH-HUH= (coll.) Yes.

ALL OF ME= My soul, my being, what I am.

'CAUSE= Because.

PLAYERS= People who play. In the context of this song "Players" are people who manipulate, who play with you or your feelings, even if that can hurt you.

GONNA= (coll.) Are going to.

HATERS= People who hate.

I SHAKE IT OFF= I get rid of it, I get free from it. In the context of this song, it means "I don't care what they say, I'm immune to their criticism".

WE COULD BE SOMETHING FOR REAL= We could have a serious relationship and love each other truly.

SWING= To move from one side to the other, especially repeatedly.

CHANDELIER= /ʃændəlɪə*/ A branched, decorative lighting fixture that holds a number of bulbs or candles and is suspended from a ceiling. (see picture)

YA= (coll.) /jə/ You.

I BREAK FREE= I do something strong and radical to get free.

I'M ALL 'BOUT (=about) THAT BASS /beɪs/= I really love the bass. BASS is a low pitch sound or tone. A bass is a string instrument that looks like a very big violin and has a very deep and low sound (see picture). In this song, the bass is a metaphore of fat bodies, or more specifically, fat body bottoms.

TREBLE= (sounds) Treble is the opposite of bass, it's a high pitch sound or tone. In music, the bass is the lowest range of sounds and treble is the highest range. In this song the bass is used as a metaphore for fat bodies and treble is a metaphore for skinny (very thin) bodies.

CLAP ALONG= Clap with me, clap at the same time as me. To CLAP is to make a happy noise by hitting both your palms together, like when people like a concert or performance and they clap at the end.

AIN'T NOTHING= (coll.) There is nothing. The form AIN'T is a colloquial negative equivalent of the present tense of To Be or To Have (= am not, are not, is not, have not, has not), so here we have a double negative, which is incorrect in good English but not so uncommon in colloquial English.

WHY YOU GOTTA BE...= (coll.) Why have you got to be... Why do you have to be...

WANNA= (coll.) Want to.

I WANT YOU= I feel (probably a strong) sexual desire for you.

I'D RATHER BE= I'd prefer to be. HAD RATHER = PREFER.

CUTE= Charming, attractive, especially in a pretty way. For example, babies and little children are usually cute, baby cats and dogs are cute, teddy bears are cute, etc.
