#TheShowMustBePaused: The Playlist

On Tuesday, June 2, 2020, Apple Music observed "Blackout Tuesday” to support #TheShowMustBePaused and plan actions to support Black artists, Black creators, and Black communities. For 24 hours straight, Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio stream played nothing but the best Black music over the generations—songs from Marvin Gaye, 2Pac, Nina Simone, Kendrick Lamar, and others who exemplify the Black American experience and struggle. This playlist captures it all.
