This week: Exclusive Summer Playlists, Feature Updates and New Releases, only on ROXi
Every Friday with the Weekly ROXi Roundup we’ll be keeping you up to date with new product features, exclusive content, new releases, curated playlists, and maybe a joke or two. We’ll only give you the content you want to receive, so keep your eyes and ears peeled…
Summertime playlists are here!
Well, we’ve made it to the all-too-brief part of the year where the sun occasionally shines (in-between thunder storms) and that means… summer holidays?
If you’re unable to properly vacation due to the unprecedented weirdness of these times, and you’re opting for a ‘staycation’ this year, nothing can bring the joy back quicker and easier than music.
ROXi Summer playlists are an instant holiday at the push of button; whether it’s children playing in the sprinklers or Pimm’s o’clock for the adults, we have a ready-made soundtrack for everyone’s fun. Head to the Pop section in Genres for our Holiday at Home playlist, and while you’re there check out the 80s Summer Hits playlist and see how many of these scorchers from the past you remember.
Boybands Old and New
During this quarantine where time seems to somehow both stand still and fly by, here’s some startling news: 2020 marks ten years since One Direction came in third place on The X Factor.
1D might be the favourite group of daughters, granddaughters and nieces everywhere, but boybands have been around since time immemorial – every generation has their favourites.
From Bay City Rollers to Backstreet Boys, ROXi’s Best of the Boybands playlist will bring you right back to those awkward days of braces, sleepovers and games of truth or dare (alright, truth: I wrote about going on a date with Donnie from New Kids on the Block in my adolescent diary.)
Take That might be your touchstone, *NSYNC now your version of “oldies”, but did you know that the second-best selling boyband of all time was The Osmonds? ROXi has them all; you provide the crying, screaming, and fainting in the aisles. Find that playlist and more in Genres/Pop.
Taylor Swift was using her lockdown time wisely and only went and recorded a whole new album without anyone knowing. She announced it online and an hour later it was released into the wild, but you don’t have to go hunting for it: we’ve got it for you right on your ROXi – just search for Taylor Swift Folklore.
Also on ROXi this week…
We’ve just updated the Karaoke-style feature Sing With The Stars to include thousands of new and classic tracks, so now you can duet with James Blunt or spit bars with Biggie without leaving the living room.
Paul Weller Galore
Last month, Paul Weller released his fifth solo number one album, On Sunset. In celebration, we’ve put together a playlist of his biggest hits with both The Jam and Style Council; find it in the Pop section, only on ROXi.
