From Rosaliá to Kendrick Lamar, the best music of 2022.

After several years of uncertainty, some of music’s biggest names decided to make their long-awaited returns in 2022, resulting in one of the best years for music in recent memory. We saw the return of pop icons (Rihanna, Beyoncé), pop punk architects (Paramore, My Chemical Romance), new wave veterans (Tears for Fears, a-ha), indie cult favorites (Alvaays, Daniel Rossen), distinguished wordsmiths (Black Star, Kendrick Lamar), and R&B songstresses (SZA and Sky Ferreira).
