Her new single, “I Love You,” continues this glorious tradition.

UMC50: 50 Memorable Songs from 2022

Folks, it’s finally here. The day has arrived.

Today, we narrow down the entire year to just 50 songs.

And, let me tell ya, it was a tall task. You’ve brought the heat to us consistently, and there were close calls and tough decisions throughout. We also had to factor in variety — we ensured that as many genres and flavors were represented as possible, to showcase the musical kaleidoscope that is the UMC community.

We hope you enjoy what we have for you on this year’s compilation. Check it out!

Let’s go! Listen to UMC50!

UMC20: Guess What? It’s Already May (May 3, 2022)

We’re late to the party on our annual J-Timbs meme share. Sorry — it’s just been busy.

However, one thing that isn’t late is this week’s UMC20 playlist — and we’ve got ourselves some bangers. We also have some more tender moments. We run the genre gauntlet, and we even have a Mother’s Day tune from a “Swanky Ma.”

Make sure you call Mom this weekend — after you check out what we’ve got for you below!
