The Commuter Trax: Hip-Hop/R&B playlist is back and refreshed for April, offering commuters a curated selection of the hottest hip-hop and R&B tracks from today and yesterday. This playlist is designed specifically for the daily commute, ensuring listeners stay energized and pumped with a perfect mix of established favorites and fresh discoveries by new talents.

Let's jump right in! Our April inspiration: the one and only Jhonni Blaze.

Jhonni Blaze's path to music predates reality TV and social media fame. Born Jzapal Jackson, music found her in a Georgia church, where a woman's singing and piano playing sparked her passion. Despite her family's modest means, Jhonni's mom secured a Walmart keyboard, and the young Jhonni began by mimicking "Fur Elise" by ear. Her natural talent didn't require sheet music; she learned guitar, drums, clarinet, and violin purely by listening. With a raw gift for music and unwavering dedication, Jhonni Blaze, the singer and multi-instrumentalist, was born. By the age of 18, Jhonni had already gone through various hardships and mainly focused on juggling her job as a dancer and the social media hustle. But a 2013 tragedy sparked a shift. Witnessing her boyfriend's death fueled her to ditch the drugs and to seriously pursue music, her true passion. Social media fame led to modeling opportunities on major publications and appearances on reality TV, but music remained at her core. 

Jhonni is known to be a hands-on artist. She writes, sings, co-produces, and even directs her own music videos, though she's not afraid to collaborate with a talented team. Since 2015, she's consistently released singles like "Revolver," "Bad Woman," and "P*ssy Control," even directing music videos during the 2020 quarantine. Her collaborations with artists like Ne-Yo and Elephant Man further solidify her dedication to music. But one thing is true, Jhonni Blaze isn't slowing down! With a steady stream of new music planned, she's determined to reserve her place as a household name in the music industry. Beyond music, she's passionate about advocating for women's rights, fostering entrepreneurship, and giving back through humanitarian efforts.

This month, the Commuter Trax: Hip-Hop/R&B playlist puts Jhonni Blaze in the driver's seat. Her latest effort, "Fumble," takes center stage at track #1, showcasing her infectious wordplay, vocal skills, and a clever throwback vibe. The song opens with a quick nod to K-Ci & Jojo's "All My Life," before launching into an irresistible beat that'll have you bouncing and bopping from the jump. Hitting repeat is practically guaranteed. Jhonni Blaze's impressive rise and consistent hits solidify her position as a major force in music, making her a must-listen on Commuter Trax this April.

Jhonni Blaze is just one gem in the treasure trove that is Commuter Trax: Hip-Hop/R&B. Alongside independent artists waiting to be discovered, you'll find chart-toppers like Cardi B, SZA, Tyla, Jack Harlow, Kanye West, Muni Long and 21 Savage amongst many others. So, whether you're cruising down the highway or squeezing onto a subway car, Commuter Trax: Hip-Hop/R&B has the perfect blend of energy and emotion to keep you moving.

So, ditch the generic radio stations and plug into the Commuter Trax: Hip-Hop/R&B playlist, right on Spotify!
