5 playlists to help you get through the rest of 2020

This post is brought to you by Apple Music

2020 wasn’t quite what we expected, was it? It may feel like a long slog to the end of this year, with new developments each day throwing you off track, but we’ve got a certified way to help you make it to the end in good spirits. Everyone knows that a good playlist has the power to transform your day entirely and that’s why we’ve selected some of the most fire playlists from Apple Music to keep you going.

Don’t have Apple Music yet? With UNiDAYS you can get 6 months free and after that it’s only £4.99 a month! Not bad for 60 million songs! Oh, and sign up soon because right now the offer includes free access to Apple TV+ for a limited time*.

1. Agenda

Apple Music Hip-Hop presents THE playlist for authentic voices in grime, afrobeats, R&B and everything in between. Right now you’ve got the likes of Ms Banks, Nines, Headie One and Pop Smoke lighting up this playlist. That’s a combination that’ll get you feeling amped up for whatever the day brings.

2. Antidote

When there’s a lot of stress and gloominess going on in the world this playlist does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s an antidote to all of that. This alternative music playlist captures that giddy feeling of endless possibilities you get from a music festival, so even if we didn’t get to go to one this year we can still enjoy the buzz of it all. Get ready to listen to the likes of HAIM, Declan McKenna and The 1975.

3. New Music Daily

There is no greater feeling than discovering a new song that you can’t stop playing on repeat. This amazing playlist helps you keep up to date with the latest must-hear tunes, so finding your new favourite song is easier than ever. Right now the playlist has got everything from Tik-Tok star Curtis Waters song ‘Freckles’ to Saweetie’s new tune ‘Tap In.’

4. danceXL

Just because we haven’t been able to experience the thrill of dancing all night at the club or cheering to a DJ set, doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate all the best dance music that’s out there at the moment. This playlist can transform any space into a rave with tracks from Topic & A7S to Becky Hill & Sigala.

5. Today’s Hits

It’s been so easy to feel out of the loop this year because of all the isolation, but there’s nothing more uniting than enjoying the music everyone’s loving right now. Today’s Hits have a real mix of the biggest songs in pop, hip-hop and R&B, so there’s always a song for whatever vibe you’re looking for. Are you in the mood for some 24kGoldn? Or are you unable to stop playing WAP on repeat?
