It’s a Sunday in April, nearly 70 degrees and sunny with a breeze. Considering Boston’s unpredictable weather patterns, this day sounds like a dream for those itching to enjoy the city’s outdoor spaces. What’s more, it’s the opportunity to soak up some sun and claim a prime spot on the Esplanade. The following playlist, filled primarily with R&B and a hint of hip-hop, is your starter kit for the chillest afternoon ever, where you forget all worries and enjoy the atmosphere along the Charles River. Grab a friend, some picnic food and welcome spring with quality ear candy by clicking here.
