Kazak’s Picks: Pop Idols 2022

There’s nothing quite like the giddy rush that accompanies a perfect pop song. This playlist documents the finest efforts of 2022, spanning chart titans, tomorrow’s superstars, and the inexplicably unknown.

The format is simple: once we’re into February tracks from the the past month will feature at the beginning of the playlist before turning to highlights from the rest of the year (in no particular order). If you’d like to hear the genre’s most recent gems, check out the first five to ten tracks. If you want to explore the year as a whole, simply hit that shuffle button, sit back, and enjoy!

New additions will be included on a monthly basis. If there’s a track that you think is the pinnacle of pop music this year but isn’t featured here, please don’t hesitate to let me know about it at thebayingofkazak@gmail.com.

WARNING: All tracks featured are completely uncensored. A number of them contain explicit language that is unsuitable for children, NSFW topics, discussions of potentially triggering subjects, and/or political commentary that may offend.
