2022 is slowly coming to a close and if there’s one thing we’ll still fondly remember once it’s gone it’s certainly the music. This year has given us some pretty amazing albums and here are five that we were listening to on repeat in the past few months.

Bad Bunny – Un Verano Sin Ti

If we had to pick the defining album of 2022, Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti would make the cut. It spent 13 weeks atop the Billboard 200 to become the longest-running No. 1 album of 2022, setting several records for an all-Spanish language album in its wake.

Harry Styles – Harry’s House

Styles gave us one of the best pop albums in recent memory with Harry’s House and its hit single “As It Was” went on to become the longest-reigning No. 1 song by a solo act in history.

Kendrick Lamar – Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers

We can count on Kendrick Lamar to push boundaries with each new album he shares with the world and his songwriting abilities reached a new peak with Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.

Beyoncé – Renaissance

Beyoncé really kept us waiting for her new studio album, and she used it to explore many different genres, mostly drawing inspiration from ’70s dance music.

Taylor Swift – Midnights

Taylor Swift breaks the internet every time she drops a new album. Midnights set more records than we can count, but it will mostly be remembered by the launch of the Eras Tour, which led to Ticketmaster’s controversial pre-sale crash.
