We are in the thick of summer here in Chicago. With temperatures predicted to reach near 100 degrees this week, it's going to be a scorcher out there. I will be hibernating much like the dead of winter because I prefer the comfort of air conditioning over the heat of the sun. With the heat in full motion, I felt it was high time for a summer playlist. You all know how much of a music junkie I am and there has been a lot of new music in the last few months. So whether you're hopping in a car for your latest summer adventure or need to get some work done, let this playlist carry you through.
Britney Spears dropped her first single in way too long which makes me want to throw a party to celebrate. "Make Me" featuring G-Eazy is different from any of her past sounds embracing a mellow, electronic vibe that really lets her vocals shine. I'm obsessed. David Guetta has a ton of new songs out that I'm currently loving especially his hit with Zara Larson "This One's For You." Country music is hotter than it's ever been and I got to celebrate that big time this past weekend at Windy City Smokeout. Check out my photos from the weekend on my Instagram account @lattesnlifeblog. I saw Billy Currington at Smokeout for the first time and he was such a blast. Of course he made the list with a song or two as well as Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line and Maren Morris who was also at Smokeout and phenomenal.
I wanted this playlist to be fun, upbeat and an obvious summer playlist. I also wanted it to be versatile so you can listen to it at work or at the gym or at the beach. It has a mix of all kinds of music from Gavin DeGraw to Tiesto to Sam Hunt. Press play and enjoy three hours of non-stop music. I might even add a few songs as the summer goes on. Follow me on Spotify for more playlists and to see what I'm listening to lately.
