Thousands of songs appeared on streaming sites and the radio in 2022, with TikTok driving the search for the next big viral hit.  

The Complex Music staff looks back at the songs that we couldn’t get enough of this year as we turn the corner and prepare to dig into a new year.

It’s a difficult task to reduce such a vast output to a list of ten. However, these are a few of the year’s winners. 

The third song from Beyoncé’s seventh studio solo album, Renaissance, is titled “Alien Superstar.” 

Although Beyoncé’s Renaissance project consists of 16 tracks, it flows like a single experience. 

It’s difficult to choose a favourite, but “Alien Superstar” is undeniably popular. 

The lead single from Harry’s House, his third album, debuted at number one right away.  

While “As It Was” is a sensuous dance-floor synth-pop hit, it’s also his most frank and exposed song to date.  

The album’s best songs, including “Karma,” “Lavender Haze,” and “Snow on the Beach,” continue to be played over and over.  

On the outstanding “Dance Fever” album, a remarkable track that fidgets with frantic energy as it rises to its captivating climax.
