5 Songs By Jack Harlow That Your Playlist Needs

Since the release of his 2020 smash hit ‘What’s Poppin,’ it seems like Jack Harlow emerged out of nowhere to quickly take hip hop by storm.

‘River Road’ 

Off his 2019 mixtape Confetti, the track finds Jack at his most reflective. The piano and saxophone-laced boom bap beat creates a melancholic vibe, noticeably slower than his usual trap production. Harlow vents on the concerns that his celebrity status could affect his honesty as an artist, along with trust issues over his social relationships from childhood to the present. For fans of “real hip hop,” this is essential for Jack Harlow playlist needs.


Over icy production reminiscent of the Neptunes’ work with The Clipse, Harlow skates over the beat with nonchalance on this banger. He proudly reps his Louisville roots while flexing at any haters of his success, showing himself as a future king of the city. Whenever we feel like “the man,” this track fits our Jack Harlow playlist needs.

‘Face of My City’ (Feat. Lil Baby)

If you thought ‘Sundown’ was Jack at his cockiest, this track takes it up a notch. Over booming 808 drums, Harlow proclaims himself as the king of Louisville, firing more warning shots at his competition. Lil Baby caps this joint off with a verse complementing Jack, representing Atlanta to the fullest. We’re bound to go hard with this song if we feel motivated.

‘Baxter Avenue’

In contrast to the two previous songs, ‘Baxter Avenue’ brings Harlow back to earth. The track’s ambient beat puts us at ease as he reflects on his beginnings in rap. We feel Jack’s humility when he shouts out his day one friends and even touches on his race in relation to his presence in rap. This is definitely up your alley for Jack Harlow playlist needs if you’re feeling nostalgic.

‘Churchill Downs’ (Feat. Drake)

 ‘Churchill Downs’ is perhaps Harlow’s finest lyrical exercise. An eerie beat laced with pitched female vocals is the perfect backdrop for Jack to trade aggressive bars with Drake  Both artists are rapping as if they’re protecting their throne, continuing to fire shots at foes. Do we need to expect anything different from this collaboration?
