D'IYANU'S Summer Afrobeat Playlist

An Afrobeat Playlist

Afrobeat music is typified by a strong baseline, jazz, and funk elements that result in a unique blend of undeniably catchy tunes with rhythms that vibrate in your bones and settle in your soul. We've taken the liberty of putting together a list of some of our favorite upbeat tracks that will make you want to dance! So here’s your daily dose of motivation to inspire you to get moving. The list doubles perfectly as a lively party track as well. Let’s spin up some afrobeat tunes while we’re indoors!

Afrobeat music makes you feel good. 

The summer is coming to an end and the best way to celebrate these last weeks is jamming out to fun music from your favorite afrobeat artists. Use this playlist as you see fit - while running errands, lifting some weights, trying a new bodyweight routine, or just dancing in your living room. This playlist will help you keep up the pace on your next run through the park or neighborhood walk, too. Don't blame us if you break out your dance moves in public, though!

Carving out time to enjoy music is one of the best ways to give yourself a break from the world and get lost in the lyrics and beats of these great tracks. When you're grooving along to the music on this playlist you'll lose track of time and the stress will just melt away. 


Afropop worldwide playlists are the ultimate self-care

You can’t help but feel good when you hear the cool tones of a good afrobeat song from your favorite afrobeat artist. It’s a safe bet that any family or friends within earshot won’t be able to help but join your dance party, too. So let it be a brief distraction from the ordinary, a pleasant reminder of fun weekends and celebrations with your favorites and a look forward at those to come.

The thing about afrobeat music—about any great music, really—is that you want to share it with the ones you care about. We hope that you and your inner circle enjoy the list! Feel free to let us know if you have any recommendations that you think we should add to this list.
