Beat the Post-Summer Blues With our Playlist

From afrobeats to new Blood Orange

Written By Sarah Ben Romdane

Athough it might still be warm across the region, summer days are officially over. We know how painful endings can be, so when you’re sat at the office, nostalgically reminiscing about your lazy sunny days chilling by the pool, we’ve compiled a musical remedy to cure those summertime blues.

 

MILLE rounds up the ultimate September playlist.

 

Young Nudy – Do That

 

Atlanta’s new rising star is none other than 21 Savage’s cousin. We’ve got SlimBall 3 – his awaited mixtape that dropped this summer – on repeat.

 

 Skepta & Wizkid – Energy (Stay Far Away)

 

When London meets Lagos: hands down, our favourite collaboration of the season.

 

Kiddy Smiles – Be Honest

 

France’s black queer icon just released his debut album and it’s already a classic.

 

Blood Orange – Charcoal Baby

 

Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange dropped his fourth and most intimate album Negro Swan last month and we’re completely mesmerized.

 

Kelela – What’s Really Good Remix feat. Princess Nokia, Junglepussy, CupcakKe, Ms. Boogie.  

 

The first track from TAKE ME A_PART, THE REMIXES, a revised version of Kelela’s debut album is the smoothest remedy for any time of the day.

 

Maes – Billets Verts

 

Relaxation mode activated with French rapper Maes’ dreamy voice.

The Internet – La Di Da

 

California’s coolest band released their fourth album Hive Mind this summer – their most mainstream and accomplished album to date – perfect if you literally just want to feel good.

 

 

EarthGang – Up

 

We can’t wait for Atlanta’s hottest duo to drop their very anticipated album.

 

Leikeli47 – Girl Blunt

 

Brooklyn’s finest female rapper is back with a new feminist anthem Girl Blunt, featured in the soundtrack of HBO series Insecure.
