This year, Black Music Month takes a different turn. Because of the horrific deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and more, we at Billboard hope to uplift and empower African Americans during this cloudy and dubious time. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the remainder of the month, an artist will provide a playlist designed to remedy the heartaches endured by the Black community.
Following the release of their infectious "Count Me In" single earlier this week (June 17), THEY. serves as the latest artist to contribute to Billboard's Black Music Month 2020 series. The R&B duo encapsulates the Black experience living in America with their Juneteenth playlist, which features cuts from Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Michael Jackson, OutKast, Kanye West and the late Bill Withers.
