"Stranger Things" Star Caleb McLaughlin Celebrates BHM With 'Black Boy Joy' Playlist


With only one week left in the annual Black History Month, we need to celebrate the culture as much as possible in these next seven days. Actor Caleb McLaughlin, who plays Lucas in the Netflix hit Stranger Things, collaborated with Spotify to create a unique playlist based on his personal favorites and, we have to say, the kid seems to have a great taste in music. His ‘Black Boy Joy’ playlist features some the hottest songs today like Drake’s “God’s Plan” and Jaden Smith’s “Icon,” as well as some tracks by Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean, and Migos.

The teenage star is also bumping deep cuts by GoldLink and Isaiah Rashad, and some classics from before his time by Keith Sweat and Joe. The Stranger Things actor has unquestionably been exposed to all sorts music in his sixteen years life as evidenced in his ‘Black Boy Joy’ playlist. The collection runs through a number genres and captures a sense black identity and self-pride that Spotify is attempting to encapsulate in their Black History Month series.
