About this playlist

We’ve had the start of the hot weather…get ready for a scorcher with our huge summer playlist!

You might be planning for a road trip round the UK or Europe, travelling further afield, hitting the festival scene, or maybe just chilling in your garden and showing off your barbecuing skills…whatever your plans for the summer we have all the big tunes for you.

Kicking off our enormous summer playlist is the man of the moment…Ed Sheeran! Yes, it’s true that he has been man of the moment for some time and quite justifiably with his immense popularity and evolving sound.

The latin rhythms of Sheeran’s 2017 banger Shape of You provide the perfect lead into Despacito, the sensational hit from Luis Fonsi that became ever bigger with the addition of Justin Bieber. Other brilliant breakthroughs this year come in the form of Another Day of Sun, which was accompanied by surely one of the most stunning film moments ever, the opening scene of La La Land in scorching Los Angeles.

UK star Stormzy gets pride of place this summer and is definitely not too big for his boots with his continued chart success. We have plenty of urban hits from The Weeknd, Drake, Tinie Tempah, Future, and DJ Khaled.

On the pop tip, we have Ariana Grande, whose music has become somewhat of an image for big positivity following the Manchester attacks that took place at her concert. Elsewhere in pop music, Taylor Swift, Clean Bandit, Jason Derulo, Kendrick Lamar, Calvin Harris, Bastille, the Chainsmokers and Christine and the Queens are among the many others who have made tracks sure to have an enormous number of spins this summer.

The UK is a place for all sorts of weather, but quite a lot of heat is predicted for this summer. We know you’ve got big plans. Get ready for the sunshine and stick on our massive Summer Starts Here playlist!
