July’s been one of the hottest on record, and while the weather may be cooling off, the tunes are just getting started. Here are the top Spotify playlists we’ve been listening to this month.

The Carters: Everything is Love

KWD Recommends: 713

In what could be perceived as the final installment of Jay Z and Beyonce’s relationship-inspired album trilogy (after Lemonade and 4:44), Everything is Love features 9 solid tracks, any of which could hold their own as a single. 

Lovebox 2018

KWD Recommends: Shutdown - Skepta

July was Lovebox month and, whether you attended or not, this playlist has some serious summer tunes that will take you into August and beyond. 

The New Éire

KWD Recommends: Lights On - Rusangano Family

This playlist is all about urban beats from Ireland, and we can’t get enough of it. Featuring some artists to watch like Hare Squead and AikJ, turn it up and relax to the mellow beats of the Emerald Isle. 

Daytona - Pusha T

KWD Recommends: The Games We Play

The latest release from Pusha T was produced entirely by Kanye West, and it’s already one of our most played albums of 2018. 

Afro Bashment

KWD Recommends: Butterflies - AJ Tracey, Not3s

Featuring some of the hottest urban musicians in the world right now, as well as some lesser-known artists, this playlist is a sure-fire winner, whatever you’re doing.
