As a coping mechanism for the (unacceptable) delay in production of Atlanta‘s season 3, here’s a nostalgic playlist of songs featured on the brilliant show, making it easier to love, and painful to miss.
In a nutshell, Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) and his brother Stephan took it upon themselves to grace us with modern writing genius, creating a show about the comedy of life, cleverly represented through a plot-line set in Atlanta, specifically within its hip-hop scene.
While the show heavily focuses on hip-hop, its soundtrack diverts a little bit away from the genre. Here’s a small sample:
Migos – Spray the Champagne:
(The Atlanta natives not only feature on the show as part of the soundtrack, but they also make a hilarious appearance in the first season.)
Rayana Jay – Everything:
Marlowe – Palm Readers:
Nina Simone – I Shall Be Released:
Beach House – Space Song:
Berhana – Grey Luh:
TKO – Caesar:
Kendrick Lamar – LOVE. (featuring Zacari):
Tame Impala – New Person, Same Old Mistakes:
Jacqueline Taïeb – Petite Fille Amour:
