Apple’s got no shortage of celebrity friends — and a few of them just shared their summer playlists to Apple Music.

Apple’s “Summertime Sounds” curated playlist collection contains the tracks hand-picked (well, presumably) by names including Chris Hemsworth, Lizzo, Shawn Mendes, J Balvin, and more. Want to know what Thor is bumping as he heads on the latest Avengers press tour? This might be your best hope of answering that question.

Hemsworth’s “Summer Chill” playlist features the likes of “Talk (Disclosure VIP)” by Khalid and “Cola (Club Mix)” by CamelPhat and Elderbrook. There’s also a bit of alt-rock thrown in there, too — courtesy of “No Rain” by Blind Melon and “Endless Summer” by The Jezabels. Plus who can resist the calming acoustic track “Old Pine” by Ben Howard?

Lizzo, meanwhile, presents an assortment of female-focused pop hits. These range from the 90s flashback “No Scrubs” by TLC to more up-to-date songs by Ariana Grande and Cardi B. Plus a few songs by herself — because, you know, she’s a singer, too.

Latinx artist J Balvin brings a range of Spanish language reggaeton and rap tracks. There’s also Billie Eilish and Post Malone for those looking for it.

Finally, Shawn Mendes’ “Summer Mix” includes his own “I Can’t Have You,” some rap tracks from Post Malone, Chance the Rapper and Drake, and “Island in the Sun” by Weezer.

You can check out these and other Apple Music playlists within the Apple Music app. Let’s hope that Apple continues adding more names to the list. With its impressive Rolodex, it shouldn’t be too hard to get other big names on board. And let’s hear what Tim Cook, Jony Ives and the rest are listening to, while we’re at it!
