This summer, hip-hop saw its return from quarantine due to last year’s COVID-19 pandemic. The past three months have given fans the opportunity to enjoy large group gatherings at concert venues and music festivals with COVID-19 logs or intimate gatherings like backyard barbecues. During this time, many of the game’s most popular rappers have released some great songs that fans can set on fire at parties, live events, or just their cars.
The perfect summer song is often omnipresent; You can hear it on the radio, on TV, and in every car speaker outside. A great summer tune can inspire you to move your body on the dance floor or relax on a warm summer evening.
Up-and-coming newcomer Capella Gray has New York City – and beyond – firmly under control this summer with his smash hit “Gyalis”. As a tribute to a man who is good with women, the Bronx native has incorporated a classic youth record into the dancehall, hip-hop, and R&B-esque track that climbs the Billboard Hot 100.
The City Girls’ “Planet Rock” -sampled “Twerkulator” will undoubtedly spark spontaneous twerking on the dance floor. Rapper colleague Megan Thee Stallion also released her hymn “Thot Shit” for the hotties. The Houston rep’s song is perfect for summer parties and for testing how strong your knees are.
Meanwhile, Tyler, The Creator released a nodding track that bangs. On the boom-bap track “Lumberjack,” Wolf Haley dives into his pocket of rhymes and spits boastful raps about his love for Drake and beating a Bentley after winning a Grammy. Play this in your car and let the nod begin.
Silk Sonic, consisting of Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars, delivered the love hymn of this summer with “Leave the Door Open”. With its throwback soul vibe, the song is the perfect slow jam to play with your significant other on romantic summer nights.
