Ending the year with holiday cheer is one thing but ending it with JAY Z’s 2022 curated top playlist is a Christmas treat to all.
The rapper is no stranger to curating playlist and in order to continue he did settle a deal in January of 2015. Before moving forward with the deal, a majority of JAY Z’s ownership stake to Jack Dosey’s Block, Inc. (formerly Square, Inc.) reportedly went for $302 million last March.
Proclaiming himself as a “top-tier” playlist creator, in a tweet last year, JAY-Z discusses the evolution of TIDAL.
“I’ve found so many songs, my playlist game is A++,” he said. “I challenge anyone out there. I see a lot of people on this call, I’m not gonna call out individual names. I’m definitely, you know, in the top-tier of playlist creators.”
This year’s TIDAL playlist is dubbed as “JAY-Z’s Year End Picks 2022,” featuring a wide range of diversified music. The 41-track mix attributes Hip Hop, R&B, Afrobeat’s, Reggaeton, pop and more.
Featuring this year’s rap hits, the playlist, includes Drake and 21 Savage’s “Jimmy Cooks,” Future’s “Wait For U,” and Lil Uzi Vert’s “Just Wanna Rock.” The billionaire wouldn’t curate a playlist if his own offerings aren’t added in. DJ Khalid’s Grammy-nominated “God Did” and Push T “Neck & Wrist,” both highlight JAY-Z in guest verses.

Showing his love and support to his wife, Beyonce, and R&B he trademarks her three tracks from the acclaimed Renaissance album and SZA’s recently dropped SOS LP and Snoh Aalegra.
Transcending from one genre to the next JAY-Z adds to his curated list international stars like Bad Bunny “Titi Me Pregunto”,” Rosalia “BIZCOCHITO,” and Burna Boy “Last Last.”
Reported last month, JAY-Z and Beyonce are, supposedly, working on recording a new project together, serving as a final installment for Bey’s Renaissance trilogy. The dynamic duo has not released an album since 2018’s Everything Is Love.
However, fans may have to wait a while. Admittedly the rapper announced he is not currently working on new music.
