Just a week after giving JUSTIN BIEBER the lullaby treatment, the folks over at Roma Music Group are returning to the pop realm with the release of Lullaby Pop HitZzz 2. Released as a part of their massive and fast-growing (81 titles and counting) Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star line of lullabies, this new 15-track collection transforms hits from CARLY RAE JEPSEN, CEE LO GREEN, ONE DIRECTION, and more into "lush, instrumental versions" for your baby or yourself. The Rock Father has the full tracklisting below!

We tend to be a Sprout house (though Nickjr. does have a few good shows), and I like to remember Nickelodeon as being the place for shows like PINWHEEL, MR. WIZARD'S WORLD, TODAY'S SPECIAL, and FINDERS KEEPERS. But, that was 30 years ago and Nick is a different game these days.

Here's a run-down of lullaby renditions of select winner's songs that are currently available on iTunes.
