12 Songs for Your Summer Playlist

So, last year I put together a playlist for you guys but this year I decided to do something a little differently and give you a few songs from different artists that are definitely creating the sounds of the summer.

Simon Says – Megan Thee Stallion ft. Juicy J

It is truly a “Hot Girl” summer this year and this is the theme song for it. I love Meg and I love Juicy J so when I saw this one on the tracklist for her album Fever I knew I’d be a fan. This one is good for riding in the car or partying with friends, a bop for sure.

Old Town Road (Remix) – Lil Nas X (Billy Ray Cyrus)

Let’s be honest, this is probably on a lot of people’s playlists already because it’s a hit so I really don’t have much to say about this particular track.

Before I Let Go (Remix) – Beyonce

Is the original version a classic? Yes. Will we still be blasting this at all cookouts from here on out? Yes. It literally COMES with a line dance. We love it.

Act Up – City Girls

We are officially bringing the song of the spring into the summer because it slaps, PERIOD. (PS. Free JT)

Roof – Rico Nasty

We should all know from last year’s playlist that I love me some Rico so you should’ve expected that she’d make it back on the list this year. Yelling along to Rico is a form of self-care I promise.

Sucker – Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers making a comeback is extremely important to this millennial/Gen Z cusper and Sucker is a bop that I can’t let go of I love singing along to it with my friends or in the car by myself.

Tempo – Lizzo ft. Missy Elliott

Lizzo just makes the hits and Tempo is a summer hit that makes you want to dance along.

I Been – Ari Lennox

This one is a song that’s good for a chill vibe but it’s still a great one for the summer because everything doesn’t have to be hype.

Sunflower – Post Malone & Swae Lee

This track is from the greatest animated movie of all time, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse and it’s so bright and positive how could it not be on your summer playlist!

thank u, next – Ariana Grande

This song is coming with us into the summer, it screams summer hit.

you should see me in a crown – Billie Eilish

This is one of those songs that just has to be blasted. It’s not a traditional summer song but it is a great addition to your playlist so it’s not too monotonous.

Middle Child – J. Cole

It slaps, it’s fun, you can rap along, what else can I say?
