Kidz Bop Biography

Kidz Bop is a brand of compilation albums featuring children performing contemporary popular songs. The series was developed by Razor & Tie co-founders Cliff Chenfeld and Craig Balsam[1] in 2001.[2] The albums are composed of popular songs that chart high on the Billboard Hot 100 and/or receive heavy airplay from contemporary hit radio stations several months ahead of each album's release. The songs are performed by the KIDZ BOP Kids, often with lyrics deemed too explicit or suggestive for younger audiences altered to be more family-friendly.[3]

The franchise has sold more than 16 million albums.[4][5] Since its debut in 2001, KIDZ BOP has expanded significantly to include merchandise, music videos, a live touring division, talent search competitions and the KIDZ BOP Kids who are the face of the brand. The KIDZ BOP Kids are chosen by audition. There are 33 main albums as of October 15, 2016.

The Kidz Bop Kids were Billboard's No. 1 Kids' Album Artist of 2010,[10] 2011,[11] 2012,[12] 2013,[13] 2014 and 2015.[14] Kidz Bop 26, released in July 2014, marked the franchise's 40th charting album on the Billboard 200.[15] Since the brand's debut in 2001, more than 16 million Kidz Bop albums have been sold.[4][5]

In November 2015, Billboard Magazine announced that the KIDZ BOP Kids rank #4 on their list of artists with the Most Billboard 200 Top 10 Albums of all time. The KIDZ BOP Kids rank higher than iconic artists such as Madonna and Bruce Springsteen, with 22 top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 Chart.[16]
