Apple Music has today launched At Home With, a new series of playlists exclusively curated by some of Sub-Saharan Africa’s top artists.
The list of guest curators of the Apple Music’s At Home With playlists include Simi, Diamond Platnumz,Fireboy DML, Adekunle Gold, Rayvanny, Oxlade, Elaine, Sun El-Musician, Ami Faku, A-Reece, Master KG and Die Heuwels Fantasties who have shared playlists that are helping them get through the lockdown and stay focused, motivated, happy and healthy.
“I’m using this time to reconnect to some of my favourite artists and sounds,” R&B singer Elaine tells Apple Music. “This playlist represents my mood and mindset at the moment: full of love and compassion, which is what we need to be spreading and showing one another right now.”
Sun El-Musician adds: “My playlist consists of powerful and motivational songs and features artists that inspire me. The playlist includes some of the projects I have been part of, as well as songs that make me feel good and allow me to dream and imagine, because dreams and imagination create my reality.”
Apple Music’s playlist series is curated to inspire, to comfort and to dance to – whether it be Isolation Icebreakers, Work From Home Hustle, Virtual Hugs, Living Room Dance Party, Astral Escape or Social Distancing Social Club.
“I’m a nostalgic person who’s a music junkie and it doesn’t get any more exciting than that when you’re listening to a playlist like this particular one,” A-Reece said. “Being in quarantine has made me embrace small things like reflecting, taking time to look back on the hard work and the good memories that have been created throughout my musical voyage so far.”
“These songs keep me motivated and focused during this difficult time we are facing – this is one of my many favourite playlists!” electronic musician and producer, Master KG declares. “Music is life, without it the world will be a boring place. I am highly motivated and looking forward to post COVID-19 where everything will go back to normal and so that we can continue to do what we love – performing for our fans. Be safe, stay home and enjoy good music.”
