Patter Playlist — 04

06-05-2018culture

Our monthly playlist of important female artists and their songs for right now.

Setting the tone for spring, Nicki Minaj’s latest, “Chun-Li”, is named after the first female character from the Street Fighter video games – the self-shot teaser video pulls no punches either. Beyoncé’s era-defining Coachella performance prompts a throwback to “Check On It”, alongside more 00s nostalgia in the form of “Stay The Night’ by Mariah Carey. Berlin-based and South-Korean born, modern-day producer Peggy Gou brings her Brasilian beats and Korean vocals with bouncy new house track, “It Makes You Forget”. And we end with Kelsey Lu’s “Shades of Blue”, a thoughtful and calming conclusion to this month’s musical edit.
