NEW YORK, NY (January 22, 2015) — KIDZ BOP 27, the latest volume in the best-selling KIDZ BOP audio series, entered the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at #3. KIDZ BOP 27’s first week sales were up more than 68% from KIDZ BOP’s previous album, KIDZ BOP 26, while the overall music market has experienced a sales decline. This was also the largest sales week for a KIDZ BOP album in two years. The franchise’s latest release marks the 10th consecutive KIDZ BOP title to debut in the Top 5 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and the 20th title to hit the Billboard Top 10 since the series launched in 2001. The album is also #1 on the Billboard Children’s Chart, alongside two other KIDZ BOP albums in the Top 10.
KIDZ BOP albums continue to top the charts as a perennial best seller. Last year, KIDZ BOP sold nearly one million albums, outselling top artists including: Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea and Katy Perry. For the fifth consecutive year, Billboard named the KIDZ BOP Kids the “#1 Kids’ Album Artists of the Year.” KIDZ BOP 25 was also Billboard’s “#1 Kids’ Album of the Year” in 2014.
Cliff Chenfeld, Co-Founder of KIDZ BOP said, “We saw great success with our album sales and live tour last year, and look forward to continued growth in 2015. We’re excited to work with CAA again to book our new ‘Make Same Noise’ tour and give even more kids their first live concert experience.” Craig Balsam, Co-Founder of KIDZ BOP, added, “We are proud to know that, after 14 years, our music continues to resonate with families everywhere as a fun and safe part of their daily lives.”
