JAY-Z caps off 2019 by sharing his favorite hip-hop and R&B songs from the past 12 months. The 40-track playlist, which was released exclusively via TIDAL, kicks off with DaBaby’s introspective “INTRO” off his KIRK album and also includes the North Carolina rapper’s breakout hit “Suge.”


Hov’s year-end picks continue with Drake and Rick Ross’ “Money in the Grave,” along with Travis Scott’s “Highest in the Room” and Tyler, the Creator’s “EARFQUAKE.”

The late Nipsey Hussle makes an entry with his Mustard collaboration “Perfect Ten,” along with two of 2019’s breakout stars including Megan Thee Stallion (“Cash Shit”) and Roddy Ricch (“Ballin’” and “The Box”).

Hov also celebrates R&B’s big year with standouts from Summer Walker (“Playing Games”), Jhené Aiko (“Triggered (freestyle”), Snoh Aalegra (“Here Now (Intro)”), and two from his sister-in-law Solange’s album When I Get Home.

Of course, Mrs. Carter, Beyoncé, earns a spot with “ALREADY” off The Lion King: The Gift, and Hov salutes Roc Nation’s own J. Cole (“MIDDLE CHILD”).

Despite their history, JAY shows that he’s still got love for Kanye West, whose Jesus Is King track “Follow God” makes the cut.
