Following the group's '90s-themed collection, the Kidz Bop Kids return to their uber-popular contemporary hits series with 2018's Kidz Bop 37. As with past sets, Kidz Bop 37 features an upbeat selection of covers representing a healthy cross-section of mainstream pop radio favorites from 2017. Included here are songs like songs like Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do," Camila Cabello's "Havana," Halsey's "Bad at Love," and more. ~ Matt Collar

Arriving in October 2016, the Kidz Bop Kidz's third collection of the year offers more covers of hits from 2015 and 2016, including songs by pop chart staples Katy Perry, Meghan Trainor, and Sia. Kidz Bop 33 also features works from EDM specialists Calvin Harris ("This Is What You Came For") and Major Lazer ("Cold Water"), who were joined on their recordings by Rihanna and Justin Bieber, respectively. They're covered here in fairly sophisticated imitations, a far cry from kindergarten singalongs. Also represented are soundtrack hits originally by Shakira ("Try Everything" from Zootopia) and Justin Timberlake ("Can't Stop the Feeling!" from Trolls). ~ Marcy Donelson

The seemingly unstoppable Kidz Bop juggernaut keeps on rolling with Kidz Bop, Vol. 6, the tenth related release in the series. At this point, Kidz Bop albums are coming out even more quickly than Now That's What I Call Music albums, on which this series was loosely based. And, like the Now series, in its own weird way Kidz Bop acts like a report on the state of pop music. Judging from the track listing of Kidz Bop, Vol. 6, so far 2004 has been short on universally acclaimed singles like "Hey Ya!"; the closest the album comes to that is Jet's "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?" -- and, actually, the song's head-bopping beat and count-along verses make it one of the more kid-appropriate songs here. As with all the other Kidz Bop volumes, this collection includes songs that work surprisingly well with kids singing along to them ("Are You Gonna Be My Girl," "Ocean Avenue"), songs that don't work at all with kids singing along to them ("Toxic," "With You," "My Immortal"), and the apparently prerequisite Sheryl Crow cover ("The First Cut Is the Deepest"). Enough people must like the Kidz Bop series for there to be so many volumes of it, but Kidz Bop, Vol. 6 is still one of its weakest installments. ~ Heather Phares

By the time the 12th volume of the Kidz Bop series was released, the collections of kid-enhanced covers of pop hits were being released just as frequently -- and featured most of the same songs -- as the Now That's What I Call Music! series. Kidz Bop, Vol. 12 is especially on point when it comes to timely hits -- the cover of the summer jam of 2007, Rihanna's "Umbrella," arrived while the original was still topping the charts. True to the Kidz Bop formula, Kidz Bop, Vol. 12 features a handful of songs that aren't destroyed by having a chorus of kids singing along with them, and a lot more tracks that hold up a freaky funhouse mirror to the sexuality, materialism, and other very grown-up traits in most pop music. Covering Fergie's "Glamorous" -- which starts out with the rallying cry "If you ain't got no money take your broke self home!" -- is in questionable taste, as is the slew of brooding breakup songs like Justin Timberlake's "What Goes Around Comes Around"; what was originally a lovelorn, slightly whiny ballad is more than a little unsettling with the Kidz Bop Kids singing "I know that you're livin' a lie." As with the other collections, Kidz Bop, Vol. 12 also has more than its fair share of earnest songs that aren't exactly inappropriate, but just sound wrong coming out of the mouths of babes; this time, it's Nickelback's "If Everyone Cared," the Fray's "How to Save a Life," and not one but two DAUGHTRY songs, "It's Not Over" and "Home," that get the Kidz Bop treatment. Even fellow American Idol alumnus Kelly Clarkson -- whose "Since U Been Gone" led to one of Kidz Bop's most genuinely joyous covers -- provides more fodder for dark and dismal covers on Kidz Bop, Vol. 12: her "Never Again" sounds bad coming from another singer, and even worse with the Kids backing her up. The collection isn't all doom and gloom, however; there are a few of the "what the -- ?" moments that have made the Kidz Bop series just as popular with some adults as with kids. The version of Gym Class Heroes' "Cupid's Chokehold/Breakfast in America" approaches the deeply weird alternative rock covers that pop up in Kidz Bop's world from time to time, like Modest Mouse's "Float On." The Kidz Bop-ified "Beautiful Liar" is even stranger on a completely different level; the song is popular largely because it's Beyoncé and Shakira singing it, and replacing two of pop's most distinctive divas with two faceless ones is just plain odd (needless to say, the poor Kidz Bop Kids are even more superfluous than usual). Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend" and Gwen Stefani's "Sweet Escape" are two among a handful of tracks that actually work as songs that children could cover well and appropriately. ~ Heather Phares

Like a Now That's What I Call Music! series for the preschool set, Kidz Bop, Vol. 4 presents more dubiously kid-friendly remakes of au courant pop songs, most of which feature a group of kids singing along with the choruses. As with the previous volumes, whether or not having kids literally sing along with songs like Evanescence's dark "Bring Me to Life," 3 Doors Down's morbid "When I'm Gone," or Justin Timberlake's vindictive "Cry Me a River" makes them into singalongs appropriate for kids is arguable, but a few of the songs do work pretty well. The remake of Avril Lavigne's "Sk8er Boi" is a fairly good re-creation of the song and is also bouncy and innocent enough to work as kids' music. Likewise, "The Anthem" has enough punky energy to appeal to kids, and "Underneath It All" is sweet enough to sing along to (questionable lyrics like "you know some real bad tricks and you need some discipline" aside). In truth, this collection doesn't really offer anything that a mix of the original songs -- such as Now That's What I Call Music! -- wouldn't provide equally well. ~ Heather Phares

Veteran pop cover act Kidz Bop Kids launch their 2016 campaign with their 31st collection of songs. Still touting their "sung by kids for kids" slogan, the young singers take on big contemporary pop hits by Taylor Swift ("Wildest Dreams"), Meghan Trainor ("Like I'm Gonna Lose You"), and Demi Lovato ("Confident"), among others. As on all the Kidz Bop releases, the backing tracks are uber-tight and the Kids' vocals sound so faithful to the original performances that they nearly sound like adults themselves. It's a bit hard to shake the creepiness of 12- and 13-year-olds cooing to Drake's slinky "Hotline Bling," but the more youthfully innocent selections fare well enough. ~ Timothy Monger

Kidz Bop Kids' second album of hit cover songs in 2017, Kidz Bop 35 features a bevy of ebullient, hooky, youth-centric songs that made the charts in 2016. Showcased once again are the talents of Ahnya O'Riordan, Cooper Hounshell, Freddy Pomee, Isaiah Morgan, Julianna Revilla, and Sierra Brogmus. Included on Kidz Bop 35 are covers of such popular songs as the Chainsmokers' "Paris," ZAYN and Taylor Swift's "I Don't Wanna Live Forever," Katy Perry's "Chained to the Rhythm," and many more. ~ Matt Collar

Following in the footsteps of Kidz Bop Gold, More Kidz Bop Gold is another set of older pop songs given the Kidz Bop treatment -- that is, they're re-recorded by studio musicians and vocalists with a gaggle of kids singing along on the choruses. Just as the later volumes of the Kidz Bop series have gotten more eclectic, tossing in Franz Ferdinand and Modest Mouse singles along with the regular diet of Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera hits, More Kidz Bop Gold is nearly as wide-ranging, spanning versions of the Archies' "Sugar Sugar" and the Jackson Five's "ABC" along with "Walk Like an Egyptian" and "Don't Worry Be Happy." However, these hits from the '60s, '70s and '80s are far more squeaky clean than the fare on the normal Kidz Bop collections, which makes this volume's reason to exist that much more questionable -- especially since parents are likely to own these songs (or songs like them) and could easily make their own mix like this. For what it is, though, More Kidz Bop Gold is well done, and could be a fun singalong experience for kids and parents alike. ~ Heather Phares

Arriving in 2017, Kidz Bop 34 promises plenty of exuberant, youth-driven songs that made the charts in 2016. As on recent albums, Kidz Bop 34 showcases a group of talented child performers featuring Ahnya O'Riordan, Cooper Hounshell, Freddy Pomee, Isaiah Morgan, Julianna Revilla, and Sierra Brogmus. Included on Kidz Bop 34 are covers of such songs as Bruno Mars' "24K Magic," Justin Bieber's "Let Me Love You," Alessia Cara's "Scars to Your Beautiful," and more. ~ Matt Collar

Because children singing adult pop songs will never grow old, the Kidz Bop Kids continue to create their legacy by covering another set of contemporary hits with the same enthusiasm and energy they always show. Kidz Bop, Vol. 13 is notable because although American Idol songs have played a big part in the series, this particular edition pulls not only from DAUGHTRY's collection ("Over You") but also from Jordin Sparks' ("Tattoo") and Elliott Yamin's ("Wait for You"). For the most part, as in the past, the covers are pretty inoffensive (not that there was much controversy to any of these songs to begin with), and there are even a few that work pretty well, like the Jonas Brothers' (who are kids themselves) "S.O.S." or Avril Lavigne's "When You're Gone," though there are none of the standouts found on some of the other volumes ("Since You've Been Gone," "Take Me Out") that make them almost worth buying if you're past your tween years. Of course, there are also some stumbles -- Colbie Caillat's "Bubbly," surprisingly enough, just because of the abruptness and abrasiveness of the background vocals ("While now!," "Safer place!"), Shop Boyz's "Party Like a Rockstar," and Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry" -- but overall, Vol. 13 doesn't sound much different from the rest of the series, which is exactly what it was trying to do, anyway. ~ Marisa Brown

Kidz Bop, Vol. 2 is another edition of the singalong series that combines light cover versions of mainstream pop songs with a chorus of singing children. Like the first version, this alternates between pleasantly appropriate material and songs that are jarringly changed around in an attempt to make them more child-friendly. Still, tracks like "Get This Party Started" retain many of the veiled sexual themes that drove the original versions, and the awful reworked take of "I'm Real" shouldn't have been included at all, even if they changed the dirty words. A lot of the songs here are perfectly fine, but the songs that aren't may cause parents to give second thoughts to buying Kidz Bop, Vol. 2. ~ Bradley Torreano
