August 2020 Playlist: Songs In Heavy Rotation

The singles keeping us inspired this month.

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are basking in their much-deserved limelight as leading ladies in rap. Making a splash with their massive joint single, “WAP,” the two icons have found there is undeniable strength in solidarity, lifting others up in the process with surprise appearances by the likes of Normani, Mulatto, Rosalía, Sukihana, and Rubi Rose.

Another collab that makes us happy is our July Cover star Diplo, and 88 Rising’s Joji riding hard in the wild west with their “Daylight” single. And perhaps the most surprising venture this month goes to New York hip-hop trio Flatbush Zombies rapping over UK singer/producer James Blake’s haunting production on “Afterlife.” Below are all of the songs we have on repeat this month. Make sure you follow along with our monthly Spotify playlist.
