So sorry it’s late but after a short break, here’s August’s monthly YouTube and Spotify playlist!

Matt – Muzik Speaks
Prince Royce & The Score are our #Two4Tunesday songs of choice for this week; I can’t get enough of either of them, Prince Royce is bringing the bounce, whilst The Score are bringing the fun to the summer!
Prince Royce (aka Geoffrey Royce Rojas) is a singer-songwriter from The Bronx (just his collaborator on the song, Jenny “from the block” Lopez).
His most recent release, ‘Back It Up’ is taken from his fourth album (Double Vision) and collaborates with both Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull, both of whom are renowned for their Latin heritage, just as Prince Royce is. Until this album release, Royce has only released mixed Latin and English albums, but this sees him release his first only-English album.
The song has all the qualities of a good Latin-pop song – it’s got a couple of superstar features, some good R&B/Dancehall feels too it and it builds nicely to a climax at the end. The video is vibrant too and it’s great to see Royce and J-Lo being playfully flirty with each other. It’s just a really fun song to listen to!
‘Back It Up’ is available on iTunes right now – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/back-it-up-feat.-jennifer/id1012472699?i=1012473100
Prince Royce – ‘Back It Up’ featuring Jennifer Lopez & Pitbull
The Score consists of Eddie Anthony on vocals and guitar, and Edan Dover on keys and production. The duo have recently “scored” some recognition for this song after it was used in the summer Asda advert and was inside the Top 50 of the UK charts.
I love this song due to its upbeat, fun feel and gang vocals. It’s the kind of song you want to play loudly with friends in the car and the windows down; it’d make for a good road trip song!
‘Oh My Love’ can be downloaded now – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/oh-my-love-single/id959321808
The Score – ‘Oh My Love’
What a #Two4Tunesday! Have you got a different couple of songs you’re loving right now? Please leave them in a comment below.

Matt’s Song Selections
There are so many songs on this playlist that I just love! They’re either current songs which right now are giving me that summer feeling, or are a few years old but hold memories for me.
Some of the songs I’ve chosen include;
- Jason Derulo – ‘Try Me’ featuring Jennifer Lopez and Matoma – this song’s got a distinct dancehall sound and captured me instantly. The song is on Derulo’s new album, Everything Is 4 and although it’s an album track, it’s the perfect opening track for our summer playlist!
- Sam Smith – ‘Lay Me Down (Tiësto Remix)’ – this remix is incredible! I’m a big fan of remixes anyway, but Tiësto’s euphoric, spacious sound on this track, has transformed an already beautiful song, into a electronica dream!
- Walk The Moon – ‘Avalanche’ – an album track from their latest release, Talking Is Hard, this song’s guitar sounds make it an upbeat, melodic song. It reminds me of something out of a sunny scene in Made In Chelsea or on the beach.
- One Direction – ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ – OK, so I feel I should justify this selection! One Direction, no matter what you think of them, have written some damn good songs; this being one of them! This song has a clear 80s quality to it, it sort of reminds me (not sure why!) of Climie Fisher‘s ‘Love Changes’.
- Tyler James – ‘Why Do I Do?’ – I used to love this song when it was released back in 2004 and the jazz-pop qualities of this song are unique and captivating. It’s damn catchy too!
- Fall Out Boy – ‘Favorite Record’ – I love Fall Out Boy and they have gone from strength to strength over the years. I love the production on this track and its use of certain effects on the vocals and guitars make it intriguing to listen to. It’s lyrics are also fairly reminiscent and that for me is a quality of summer; making memories to reminisce in years to come.
- Michael Jackson – ‘Love Never Felt So Good‘ featuring Justin Timberlake – this song has previously been a #FeelGoodFriday track of mine and it’s not hard to tell why! It’s a perfectly sculpted pop song with the uplifting sounds of Michael Jackson’s vocals, married with modern Timbaland production and support of Justin Timberlake’s voice.
- Razorlight – ‘Rip It Up’ – released back in 2004, this has many memories of countless parties I went to whilst at my secondary school and just makes me think of times I spent with friends. It’s energetic tempo makes for a hard-hitting belter.
- Vance Joy – ‘Riptide’ – this song is a personal favourite of mine; I was once shown this track by someone I admire for overcoming their fear of performing and its California surfing sound is the perfect calming close to our playlist.
My other selections include songs by; Ariana Grande, Two Door Cinema Club, Train, DJ Fresh featuring Rita Ora, Sigma, Frankmusik, Clean Bandit and Shift K3Y.
That’s it from me! I hope you like the songs I’ve contributed to the playlist and that they might help shape some memories for you too. Please share this playlist with your friends. Matt x
Max’s Song Selections
I’m really excited to share this playlist with you guys, it’s packed full of great tunes listen to this summer. Our selection is quite varied in styles and genres as we hope to capture all the highs and lows of your summer through the playlist.
The song I added to this playlist are:
- Dan Croll – ‘From Nowhere’ – this song is just far too cheery to not have in your summer playlist! The upbeat riffs and instruments make this song a good listen.
- Only Real – ‘When This Begins’ – to be honest I’m in love with this whole album. But this tune fits best with our Summer vibes, it’s probably one you’ll put on, sit back and relax to. If you like ‘Only Real’ be sure to check his feature in my #WildCardWednesday post.
- Toddla T – ‘Take It Back’ – although this song isn’t too recent, I think some clean Drum n Bass is essential for a good playlist. ‘Take It Back’ has some beautiful vocals over this great backing track.
- La Roux – ‘Uptight Downtown’ – This song grabbed me by it’s instrumentals, it’s on the verge of a pretty interesting ‘funk’ track. Also I personally love La Roux’s voice regardless, it’s so clean and natural sounding. Her songs should defiantly feature in your summer this year!
- SBTRKT – ‘IMO’ – this song is a little different to the others. It’s a very mellow tune, with an overall softness to the instrumental. It’s a beautiful song nonetheless, some really nice production went into this!
These are all of the songs I’ve decided to choose for the summer; enjoy!
We’ve gathered only the best songs which are sure to make your summer special. We want this summer to be one you’ll remember for the best reasons! Check out the full playlist on Spotify. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
