Hey peeps!

Everyone ready for the upcoming long weekend? What’s on your Fourth of July docket? I hope whatever you’ll be doing and wherever you’ll be celebrating, loved ones will surround you! And some great tunes ; ) Because let’s face it- summer jams make pretty much everything better, right?

So since this is my personal blog, and I can already sense ya’ll are good lil’ secret keepers, I’ll fill you in on something. I totally failed Music Appreciation in 10th grade. No, seriously. It was supposed to be one of those easy-A deals, and I bombed it. Had to repeat the class, and still almost failed it again. It mayyyy have had something to do with the fact that I turned in 2 out of the 15 homework assignments, but whatevs.

I still might not be able to identify the difference between the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods (sorry, Ms. Chung), but I can put together a sweet “mix tape” and today- I’m sharing with you my hits for the summer. So whether you’re doing a leisurely trail run, experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, or hanging out at the pool, I’ve got ya covered!

Here’s my list.  Personally, I think the key to putting together the best summer song playlist is mixing it up… keep it random! Everything from Nappy Roots to The Four Tops. To purchase or check out any of these gems,  just click on the link next to each song. Make it happen. I promise you won’t regret it. And because I’m always down for new music, tell me in the comment section below what beats you’re loving these days : )

xo,

DJ Tina
