The Summer 2024 playlist with Ice Spice, Lana Del Rey and Sabrina Carpenter

What are the most anticipated albums and the best songs of July and August 2024? Numéro unveils its summer playlist, from new records by rapper Ice Spice, A$AP Rocky and singer Sabrina Carpenter to unreleased singles by Lana Del Rey (duet with Quavo) and Childish Gambino.

After a month of June marked by the release of Charli XCX’s invigorating Brat , the month of July could hold some nice musical surprises. Even if the summer season is better known for its hedonistic festivals than for its schedule of album and single releases.

This Wednesday, July 3, 2024, rapper Quavo and singer Lana Del Rey release a country-rap track called Tough.
