As Wang notes:

Chill is my go-to playlist when I get home, when I need to decompress, or when I’m having a night in …

Hype—those songs are mostly derived from playlists that I’ve played in a party bus or en route to a festival or going out. They are songs that kick up the energy

Vibe is more a playlist that’s in between, with songs that have high energy and also are great classics. It’s good for having people over, drinks; it’s kind of pregame music.” There you’ll find A$AP Rocky, Rich Homie Quan, and Meek Mill.”

Each playlist is available now to Apple Music subscribers.
