About Us

PopBuzz is a website and mobile app for the next digital generation. It combines a music stream of the fastest trending tracks in social media with GIFs, videos, articles and digital goodness from around the web. In PopBuzz, POP fuses with BUZZ to create a single media experience that is as hot as that soon-to-be discovered GIF of Kanye riding a unicorn over a rainbow waterfall.

We explore the depths of the internet to discover what fans and web creators are saying right now. We seek out the hilarious, the unique and the slightly off-the-wall and we bring it together all in one place.

We’re also massive music fans, so you can count on PopBuzz to bring you the latest in new music releases and news about our fans’ favorite bands. And of course, it’s all tied together with an amazing music service featuring the best pop music that people are talking about online.
