Yes, Memorial Day weekend is over–and if you were here experiencing the sparkling hot weather here in NY, it was probably spent in the first of many picnics, park jams, cookouts or rooftop bashies. Hopefully you checked Mixtape Mondays before you left the house but if not you might have got caught up short for picnic-appropriate selections, which is why I took the trouble to assemble this pan-Caribbean top 10 picnic jam playlist to get you started. The selection of picnic jams is a subtle art, and should not be confused with the related but separate categories of carnival/parade anthems, and general summer bangers. The key elements are lyrical references to sunshine, breezes, sexy people and all-around relaxed, feel-good vibes…feel free to add your own in the comments section.
