Audiomack Celebrates Black Music Month 2021

By Audiomack on

Celebrating Black music and Black culture are at the core of the Audiomack ethos. Following the history of Black Music Month—in 1979, Kenny Gamble, Ed Wright, and Dyana Williams, who were music industry leaders, pushed President Jimmy Carter to declare June the official month to honor Black music—Audiomack is excited to announce a series of activations meant to inspire, educate, and, of course, entertain artists and fans alike under the theme of Say it Loud!

With so much more to come, please enjoy a taste of the Black Music Month itinerary below.


Our Say It Loud Vol. 2 playlist, the main themed playlist for the month, hosts artists from Nipsey Hussle and J. Cole to Marvin Gaye and D’Angelo. Each track on this playlist delivers a poignant, yet danceable, message.

Starting June 7, we will also have a full suite of playlists with more granular themes. Make sure to check out Audiomack’s rich playlist library to ensure you don’t miss out.

Own The Label

For the month of June, Audiomack will be serving up two Own The Label episodes. Each episode will feature a Black label boss, and touch on the importance of taking control of your career, while also giving out actionable advice to aspiring creatives.

Beyond The Beat Podcast

Our Beyond The Beat podcast will also be making a splash in June, with two episodes dedicated to giving you the stories behind culture-moving songs, and shining a light on the producers who helped bring those songs to life.

Make sure you have push notifications enabled and follow Audiomack on all social channels, so you don’t miss out on a great month of Black music programming!
