Spotify has been making efforts for the last few years to bring awareness to black history and culture. They previously featured their ‘Black History Is Now’ hub that is available year round to honor the music and achievements of black people.

Now, they’re taking it a step further by adding ‘Phenomenal Black Music,’  which is a “celebration of the songs and women that have shaped the way music is made, experienced, and replicated across the world,” Spotify told Forbes. 

The campaign will have art and merchandise designed by black artists, and a pop up in New York City from February 29-March 2, with exclusive streetwear by Joe Freshgoods and Jamilla Okuboto encourage Spotify listeners to use the hub.

Currently, the playlist under ‘Phenomenal Black Music’ are Black Girl Magic, The Cookout, Black Lives Matter and Black Love Mixtape, all which celebrate black history or black women.

From Burna Boy to India.Arie, Spotify is gathering all the songs you know and love.
