3. Kids In Love (2017)
“This music collection of Kids in Love by Kygo has a blend of summery, dance, and trance songs. A multiple number of these songs have a happy feel to them such as the Kids in Love song duet with Nightgame, Sunrise song feat. Jason Walker, duet with John Newman, Stranger Things feat. One Republic, I See You feat. Billy Raffoul etc. Kids in Love by Kygo is also a type of music collection that evokes a celebratory/fun vibe.”

2. Golden Hour (2020)
“I like how Kygo chose to work with Zak Abel, Sandro Cavazza, Joe Janiak, and Zac Brown as they are all artists Avicii has collaborated with in the past. It is honestly hard for me to pick a favorite from this album as I also love the collaborations Kygo did with Zara Larson + Tyga, Sasha Sloan, One Republic, Dreamlab, Valarie Broussard, and others from this album. I also thought it was awesome he included “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston as that song is also a masterpiece to listen to.”
1. Cloud Nine (2016)
“I can’t say enough good things about this album. Every one of the songs is beautifully composed and easy listening. Probably my favorite album by Kygo to date. His music fits with so many moods and seasons; the best of which is listening on summer nights or at the beach. I highly recommend it and you won’t be disappointed by this album!”
