Spring is still lingering, but the lazy days of Summer aren't too far away! And as everyone knows, it wouldn't be Summer without some sweet tunes. We've put together the ideal playlist for singing in the car, dancing by the pool, or generally whatever you want to do once the warm weather hits. Whether you live and die by the Top 40 or you want some indie rock, there's something for everyone here. Take a look, subscribe to our Spotify playlist, and make sure you're following our Summer playlist for single ladies too! Side note: We love Beyoncé and Drake as much as you do, but their new music isn't available on Youtube or Spotify!

"Never Be Like You" by Flume ft. Kai
