Songs For Your Summer Playlist
by Jordan-Lee Pirrie
The nights are longer, the sun is shining and the cocktails are in sight; summer is most definitely coming. And while your wardrobe might be coming along nicely, you’re gonna want some equally killer jams for those lazy days in the sun.
This year, it’s all about throwing it back with loads of 70s and 80s inspired tracks, tropical vibes and insanely catchy choruses. We’ve got some great tracks to add to your playlist to start off your summer right.
Lost In Your Light - Dua Lipa feat. Miguel
throwback track before her album drops in June. It’s got that tropical vibe that's begging to be
played at the next pool you find yourself next to and Miguel also features to make a piece of pop delight.
Hard Times - Paramore
approach to their first new song in nearly 4 years. The blend of Hayley Williams’ chilled tones with

Heatstroke - Calvin Harris feat. Young Thug, Pharrell Williams & Ariana Grande
The Cure - Lady Gaga
Passionfruit - Drake
Green Light - Lorde
us with ‘Green Light’ back in March, changing up her sultry production for an anthematic blast. This

Still Got Time - ZAYN feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR
march towards summer is not slowing him down. With beats not unlike Drake’s latest tracks, the
trop-pop release continues the trend of low-key but dance-able songs that’ll infect your head. With a second album coming out soon, expect some more vibe-y drops soon.
Lust For Life - Lana Del Rey feat. The Weeknd
add The Weeknd to the mix, the vocals blend so perfectly that the track’s begging for remix upon
remix to compete with ‘Summertime Sadness’. But the original is a perfect song to wind down a
day in the sun, ready for the next one.
