Listening to the best current kid-friendly pop artists allows you to enjoy catchy tunes without worrying about any four-letter words your kids might hear.
There are many adjustments that parents have to make when they have kids. While blaring your favorite tunes with your windows down might have been a blast before having children, you don’t want them to hear profanities. Thank goodness there are still musicians out there today who keep things clean as a whistle. If you’re looking for someone who doesn’t depend on expletives to sing a song, consider these current kid-friendly pop artists.
Tori Kelly is a fantastic choice for kid-friendly pop music. Kelly rose to prominence in 2016, earning her a “Best New Artist” Grammy nomination for radio bops such as “Nobody Love” and “Should’ve Been Us” off her Unbreakable Smile album. Kelly got the gold from the Grammys three years later, winning two for “Best Gospel Album” and “Best Gospel Performance/Song.”
With a catalog devoid of explicit content, there’s nothing to worry about when throwing on some Tori Kelly. Today, Kelly continues to prove that her lyric “But baby, who knows, maybe I can sell out shows without taking off my clothes” continues to hold.
Carly Rae Jepsen
It’s been 11 years since Carly Rae Jepsen dropped one of the greatest pop songs, “Call Me Maybe.” While some could perceive Jepsen as a one-hit wonder, she’s still churning out popular music with the same catchy style that made “Call Me Maybe” so infectious. The best part of it is Jepsen always keeps it clean. Her lively, upbeat music will get kids off their seats and dancing. MaybeJepsen’s music, with your encouragement, could motivate your baby to take their first steps and start dancing!
Most rock bands live the life of “sex, drugs, and rock and roll,” making them a hard “no” for many moms looking for music that can help their child’s development. Luckily, not all rock bands live that credo, nor do they sing about it in their songs.
Imagine Dragons have been a radio staple regardless of whether you’re listening to top-40 or rock stations with hits like “Thunder,” “Believer,” and “Whatever It Takes.” Fortunately for parents who could use a little electropop rock, there isn’t a swear word in their catalog.
Love her or hate her, judging from the numbers she’s pulling in from her rerecorded albums and theatrical release of her Eras Tour, Taylor Swift is in a league of her own for the pop culture scene.
Although her music has become more adult-orientated in her lyrics and themes from Folklore, there’s no denying that a great portion of Swift’s music is appropriate for children. With pop masterpieces like “Blank Space,” “Anti-Hero,” and “Style,” your little one will be singing and dancing along to the 12-time Grammy winner in no time.
It may be frustrating for parents to find modern music to listen to with their children, but the best current kid-friendly pop artists are a good place to start. Whenever you need a break from “Wheels on the Bus” or “Old McDonald,” you can’t go wrong with these artists. You might want to give Carly that call she’s been wanting for over a decade now.
