KIDZ BOP is a series of sing-along collections that debuted in 2001. Known for their “kid-friendly” versions of hit singles re-recorded by session musicians and singers and the KIDZ BOP Kids, a chorus of child singers, the compilations became popular with families who wanted cleaned-up versions of contemporary songs: beginning with 2005’s KIDZ BOP, Vol. 7, they routinely debuted within the Billboard Top Ten, and have collectively sold close to ten million copies.
Along with the expected teen pop fare from Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Hilary Duff, and Kelly Clarkson, the early-2000s KIDZ BOP installments included more left-of-center picks like Franz Ferdinand’s “Do You Want To?” and Modest Mouse’s “Float On” as the series evolved. Along with the regular KIDZ BOP collections, which were released roughly twice a year, the franchise expanded to include DVDs and collections of oldies, Christmas songs, and Latin pop hits.
In 2017, the KIDZ BOP Kids continued their successful live schedule with the “Best Time Ever” tour. They also delivered three collections that year, with KIDZ BOP 34 featuring selections like Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic” and Justin Bieber’s “Let Me Love You,” and showcasing uptempo hits originally by acts like the Chainsmokers, Miley Cyrus, and Calvin Harris… KIDZ BOP 38, the second volume to arrive in 2018, featured electronic-pop crossover hits “The Middle” by Zedd and “FRIENDS” by Marshmello, as well as Drake’s “God’s Plan.” The latest KIDZ BOP album, KIDZ BOP 39, will be out in stores January 18th, 2019.
