We didn’t ask for it, we didn’t expect it and we didn’t know we needed it. Glass Animals and Joey Bada$$ have sat down and created a 12 track Spotify playlist that will answer all your returning-from-a-long-weekend-blues.
The 12 tracks span almost two decades of hot songs, from The Fugees’ Fu-Gee-La and Biggie’s Hypnotize to the heavyweight collab track 1Train (featuring Joey Bada$$ himself), and Kendrick Lamar and Dr. Dre’s The Recipe.
It’s good to see the original No Diggity by Blackstreet featuring Dr. Dre make an appearance – I have heard it covered a few times in the last few years (even Ed Sheeran and Passenger have had a go) – but I’ve missed mmm-hmming along to the Blackstreet original.
The playlist ends with Common’s Love of My Life (An Ode to Hip Hop) which is exactly the kind of ode this playlist represents.
Glass Animals played a stellar show at Austin City Limits over the weekend and continue their tour through the US.
Hopefully everyone was able to catch Joey Bada$$ and the aptly named Listen Out, he also has a new single out that you can peep out here.
So kick off them shoes, grab a beer and let the cool change just flow over your body.
