KIDZ BOP 24 is the sixth consecutive KIDZ BOP title to debut in the Top 3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and the 17th title to hit the Billboard Top 10 since the series launched in 2001. 

KIDZ BOP 24 is also positioned at #1 on the Billboard Children’s Chart, where there are currently 3 other KIDZ BOP albums in the Top 10.

Timed with the release of KIDZ BOP 24, KIDZ BOP launched its annual talent competition, KIDZ Star USA, America’s biggest online talent search for kids ages 15 and under. This summer, KIDZ BOP teamed up with Six Flags Entertainment to bring The Official KIDZ Star Live Audition Tour to 10 Six Flags Theme Parks where kids can audition live for the first time ever. Aspiring young singers can now enter for their chance to win an RCA Records recording contract in two ways.

Cliff Chenfeld & Craig Balsam, Co-Founders of KIDZ BOP said, “The KIDZ BOP brand and music continues to resonate with today’s youth and we are excited that, this summer, kids and families have the opportunity to see the KIDZ BOP Kids perform live. We are also thrilled that kids can now audition in person to make their pop star dreams come true. So far, tens of thousands of kids have already auditioned for KIDZ Star.”


My Thoughts:

I have been sharing reviews of KIDZ BOP CDs for the past few years, and have to say that KIDZ BOP 24 is my family's favorite by far.  This new CD release is jam packed with some of today's hit songs, sung by kids for other kid's to enjoy.  As a parent, I have become of the KIDZ BOP CDs as they let me share some of the music I, as an adult am listening to on the radio, with my little ones, without having to worry about turning off or down the volume when inappropriate words are sung.  While I do enjoy kid-friendly CDs in the car with the girls, there are just tines -- like on long car rides - that I wish I could listen to top 20 hits, instead of listening to the same kid song or DVD play over and over again in the car.

This past week, I surprised the girls with an impromptu getaway to my parents summer place in NH.  After having Savannah up at the ER on Sunday night and having a laceration on her forehead glued shut, I thought a long weekend getaway would be good for all of us, to help to unwind and enjoy the fresh mountain air. :-)  Savannah loves vacations, and was over the moon when I told her we were going to NH.  Now, to break the news that today is our last day on vacation before going back home to CT.  I am not looking forward to this, as she gets upset and cries as we pull away from my parents' home and throughout the car ride home.   

But, on the 3-hour car ride up with my parents, I surprised my girls with this recent release from KIDZ BOP.  My parents had never seen or heard of these CDs for kids.  When my mom heard the first track "Thrift Shop," she quickly asked if the girls should be listening to this type of music.  Then, she heard a kid singing it, and wondered if it was the same song she had heard previously on the radio.  I told her not to worry, that this CD, with some of today's hit music, is sung by aspiring young singers, for kids to enjoy.  We ended up listening to all 16 tracks, with a few we repeated because the girls (and my mom) were getting into them a lot, as they be-bopped in their seats.

Here are all 16 tracks found on the new KIDZ BOP 24:

1. Thrift Shop
2. I Knew You Were Trouble
3. Suit & Tie
4. Beauty And A Beat
5. Ho Hey
6. Come & Get It
7. Feel This Moment
8. Scream & Shout
9. Girl On Fire
10. I Love It
11. Can't Hold Us
12. Heart Attack
13. Mirrors
14. 22
15. Just Give Me A Reason
16. Don't Stop The Party 

Great songs, huh? You and your family will have a blast listening to each and every song on this Billboard Top 3 album, either in the car or at home.  I can't wait to see what is in store for the next KIDZ BOP CD release.  All I know is that it will provide hours of listening enjoyment in the car, and fun dance parties at home with the girls. :-)
