LeBron James, the freshly minted Lakers forward and future star of the long-awaited Space Jam sequel, is quite the music connoisseur. For the uninitiated, King James sometimes receives songs and albums before they’re released and shares snippets or thoughts via his Instagram story. He memorably gave followers short previews of Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. and Drake’s More Life. And most recently, he reviewed Eminem’s Kamikaze via emoji-laden tweets.
So it’s no wonder Apple Music just tapped basketball’s resident music critic to make a playlist. But it’s not just any playlist; it’s one inspired by the leading ladies of his life—his mom, his wife and his daughter. The playlist is fittingly titled “The Strongest” because of those three strong women and the strong artists featured on this collection of 62 songs.
