Picture your perfect summer day.

It’s between 25-to-28 degrees outside. You’re throwing the best summer party in your dream backyard, with every summer amenity you can think of. There’s a barbecue grilling, a spacious pool, multiple coolers filled to the brim with your favourite alcoholic beverages, and the sun is just beginning to set.

All of your friends (well, at least the ones you’d invite to the world’s greatest summer bash) are having an amazing time; they’re mingling, playing games in the pool, having a few brews, and are just positively beaming. You’re taking a breather in the hot tub, ice-cold drink in hand and good vibes up to here. The only thing missing from this perfect picture is a bomb-ass summer playlist blasting from your backyard sound-system (yes, there’s one of those too).

This is that playlist.

All of these tracks have been hand-picked for maximum summer vibes. We got upbeat mainstream rap, groovy EDM four-on-the-floor bangers, and some of the best summer hits to grace our ears in the past decade. There are songs for dancing on the porch, songs for gently bobbing your head in the hot tub, and songs whose choruses will make everyone at the party happily and drunkenly sing together in dubious but wholesome unison.

And yes, we can’t all have the dream summer party of our lives; we don’t all have the means. But a dope summer playlist will definitely level up whatever summer get-together you’ll have this year.
