Strap on your earphones or turn your car stereo way up, summer is back in Malta! So in anticipation of what will definitely be yet another incredible scorcher, Lovin Malta has prepared the only playlist you will ever need this summer. You can find it on Spotify, or you can just take some of these tracks and mix in your own.
Views by Drake
Did you ever think that Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” music video accessory would drop a killer album this year? With leading tracks such as “Hotline Bling”, “One Dance”, and “Pop Style”, Views has a hot selection for your summer playlist.
Keep it cool with Coldplay
Many people have a soft spot for this English Rock band, and while it is true that their recent album A Head Full of Dreams is not their best work yet, you definitely have to include “Adventure of a Lifetime” and “Hymn for the Weekend” in your ultimate playlist.
“I took a pill in Ibiiiiiza…”
Mike Posner might be taking one too many pills (or planes) in Ibiza, but at least he’s having a good time! This track is without a doubt the 2016 summer anthem, so add, play, and repeat.
Folk-Pop band The Travellers are making wavesthis year with their songs written in Maltese. Nothing beats home-grown talent, so make sure to include Maltese artists The New Victorians and Red Electrick, as well as Gozitan band The Travellers.
Anything by Calvin Harris
…literally everything! Most famous for his collaborations with artists such as Rihanna, Florence Welch, and Ellie Goulding, Calvin Harris has been a hot commodity since his 2009 solo hit “I’m Not Alone”.
Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly
This American rapper from Compton has been on the music scene for over a decade now, but his 2015 album To Pimp a Butterfly has been his best work to date.
Did you actually expect an ultimate summer playlist without Malta’s own Ira Losco? This Eurovision tune might not be having you walking on water, but we do expect a fair degree of splashing around.
I’ve always said that I would rather have 20 root canal treatments done than listen to a Justin Bieber song, but his latest album is actually really good.
No summer is complete without Gareth Emery’s 2012 classic. Most Maltese people cringe when they hear this Trance anthem, but they secretly love it.
Once you Pop…
Whether you’re at the beach, a pool party, or having a barbeque, you need a good pop song to sing along to. If you’re stuck with finding the freshest pop tunes, just head on over to Vevo, the US Billboard Hot 100, your local radio singles chart… alternatively you could follow Lovin Malta on Spotify and check out the playlists we’ll be adding on there!
