Making his summer playlist – which is usually a compilation of songs by top musicians across the world – public on his Facebook page, he wrote;
“Every year, I get excited to share my summer playlist because I learn about so many new artists from your replies—it’s an example of how music really can bring us all together. Here’s what I’ve been listening to this summer. What songs would you add?”
Tems’ “VIBE OUT” hit single was listed 2nd after Beyonce who made number 1 with her song, “BREAK MY SOUL”.
