Melissa Coker Kicks Back With Katy Perry, Wiz Khalifa

Somehow it's already August, which means it's time to maximize our summer enjoyment with beach trips, ice cream cones, and of course, designers' warm-weather playlists. Melissa Coker of LA-based label Wren is soaking up the last days of the season with hip-hop jams from the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Katy Perry mega-pop, and dance tunes from Ratatat.  

"Thinkin Bout You," Frank Ocean - "Okay, going to get controversial here: a falsetto to rival Prince's. There, I said it."

The Swimming Song," Loudon Wainwright III - "Summery nostalgic vibes. Take me to a time machine, please."

"Mercy," Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha T, 2 Chainz - "I love the dancehall samples on this one. Cruel summer indeed."

"No Sleep," Wiz Khalifa - "Party all day, party all night. 'Nuff said."

"Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," Katy Perry - "I have a playlist on my computer entitled 'Hiking,' but it's secretly filled with only Katy Perry songs. Guilty pleasure alert."

"Lemonade," Gucci Mane
- "What can I say, the children singing get me every time."

"Seventeen Years," Ratatat - "I hear this song and want to get my dance on STAT!"
