The Glastonbury Edition

Buro 24/7 Singapore's weekend playlist: #5
It's Glastonbury weekend — and if you're not halfway across the globe at Somerset, we suggest digging into these soul and funk hits from the line-up

Starting with the force of soul that is Mary J. Blige, our weekend is in order. Having headlined the Pyramid Stage on the first day of Glastonbury last evening, we just can't get enough of her — and neither can Disclosure, who've lent their electronic skills to Follow. Skepta's Shutdown is a fun though rather crude sampling of Idris Elba's set (yes, the actor's a DJ too) — a taste of things to come for Elba's Glastonbury debut on day two. Up-and-coming Jamaican crooner Denai Moore's Blame is a textured, heart-wrenching tune that's all soul — fully expected from a self-proclaimed "heart full of gold, stomach full of tea" kind of woman. Next, Jive Aces' All About That Bing is the Nicki Minaj spoof you've been waiting for — revel in its jazzy glee. Finally, end the weekend with Rhodes. We've been hooked on him ever since his performance at Burberry's SS16's London Collections: Men showcase, and can't wait for the single release of Close Your Eyes on 5 July.
