It is that time again! Welcome to the Annual 2022. I really enjoyed the selection process this year with so much great songs and talent on display.
Where do I start? How could you not appreciate Ariana Grande taking The Weeknd’s Save Your Tears to another level. Did you see the triumphant return of ABBA with I Still Have Faith In You? Years & Years just murdering the dance floor with Sweet Talker and also featuring on Kylie Minogue’s A Second to Midnight.
Speaking of Kylie. It is her 17th appearance on The Annual for those keeping track. She did re-release her Disco album with 3 additional tracks featuring guests and thus called the Guest List Edition.
Definitely a trend for this year’s The Annual. So many tracks being joint efforts or featuring a lot of talent such as David Guetta and Galantis.
Norwegian pop sensation Sigrid debuts on The Annual with not one but two tracks, Mirror and Burning Bridges. The Annual 2022 has so much new talent including Shane Cold, Tate McRae, and Ella Henderson. Raye returns with two tracks, the infectious BED and Love Of Your Life.
Kim Petras stuns with Future Starts Now and continues to be a beacon for the transgender community including her provocative MTV performance in Hungary. Dua Lipa closes out her Future Nostalgia album with the single Love Again as she performs on her acclaimed world tour.
