America’s popular children’s music brand, Kidz Bop has detailed the release of Kidz Bop Summer ’18, the third album to feature the British Kidz Bop Kids.

The group stormed onto the UK charts in 2017 with the top ten debut album, Kidz Bop, which reached number seven on the Artist Album Chart. This was followed by Kidz Bop 2018, which spent eight weeks in the UK Top 40 Official Album Chart.

Kidz Bop has accumulated over 7.1 million combined streams in the UK and over 120,000 album sales since launching in the UK last year.

The third album in the music series will feature famly-friendly versions of today’s biggest pop hits, including New Rules, Havana, Anywhere, Reggaeton Lento and the first Kidz Bop original song, Make Some Noise.

Kidz Bop Summer ’18 will be supported by a national TV and digital advertising campaign, as well as media appearances, live shows, consumer PR campaigns and more.

Victor Zaraya, Kidz Bop president, said: “In less than a year since its UK debut, Kiz Bop has surpassed sales and chart expectations. With more than 120,000 albums sold and multiple live appearances to date, Kidz Bop, along with our UK partners, have built a solid foundation to create a perennial UK music franchise.”

Simon Barnabas, managing director, Universal Music On Demand, added: “Very few acts can say they broke the 100k album sales mark in the UK last year.

“We are exceptionally proud of this achievement, testament to the work of all the talented teams involved – and most notably the Kidz Bop Kids themselves. We very much look forward to building on this success with the new album and beyond.”
