Editors’ Notes To celebrate Soul September, South African R&B and trap soul breakout Elaine takes us on a journey back in time with her song picks on this exclusive Apple Music playlist, featuring classics from the ’70s (Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers) through today (Summer Walker, dvsn). “This playlist highlights some of the artists that I grew up listening to, and that have paved the way for young R&B/soul artists like myself,” she tells Apple Music. “Soul September makes me think of warmth, romance, passion, feeling nostalgic, and everything in between.”
