Paris-based Fenty has tapped Dutch Moroccan/ Egyptian model Imaan Hammam, along with Fenty deputy creative director, Jahleel Weaver and Compton-born music creative Steve Lacy to help kick off the label’s Apple Music playlists series. Each playlist comes with its own unique cover art, pulled from prints featured in the label’s 6-20 drop and stamped with the Fenty maze logo.
Hamman’s list is described as a “globally influenced track selection mixing old and new, African, hip hop and dancehall.”
The 23-year-old model selected 17 songs with artists including Brent Faiyaz, Madego, KAYTRANADA, Brandon Banks, Blue Room Mafia, Mavado, Dexta Daps, Stylo G, Nutty Neithan, A2, Nafe Smallz, Gunna, Fania All-Stars, Super Mama Djumbo, Headie One & Fred again and Rema.
Naturally, Hammam selected a song by Fenty boss Rihanna Robyn Fenty, choosing “We Ride,” a single from her 2006 A Girl Like Me album.
And while Hammam caused a major stir earlier this year when she was spotted spending a cozy weekend in New York with Toronto rapper Drake, his songs were nowhere to find on her playlist.
Fenty has more collaborative playlists planned with South-African born, London-based photographer Lea Colombo and Awake NY founder Angelo Baque sited as in the queue.
