The perfect playlist for any hip hop fans...


Looking for some brand new tunes recommended by one of Ireland's top R&B stars? You've come to the right place.

Erica Cody recently teamed up with Hennessy to create the ultimate hip hop playlist. Featuring a mix of brand new releases and some older favourites, the Irish R&B star says this playlist is made up of all the songs and artists she's loving at the moment, a quality playlist of essential listening.

Featuring the likes of Victoria Monét, Kanye and even one of Erica's own hits, there's sure to be something there that suits your taste.

You can listen to the playlist on Spotify here.


We recently caught up with Erica to chat about the inspiration behind this playlist, as well as the music and artists that got her through lockdown.

You can watch the full interview below where you may notice Erica sipping on a delicious-tasting cocktail.

That brand new tasty beverage is called the Pandemic Punch, created by Irish bartender Ali Hayes. Ali recently placed in the Top 5 in the GLOBAL Hennessy My Way cocktail competition for this creation, so it comes very highly recommended.


As well as being an Irish creation, Hennessy Cognac was also founded by an Irishman back in the late 1700s, and today the round and robust flavours of Hennessy V.S make it very versatile and ideal for various cocktails, from classic recipes and sophisticated cocktail creations to simple mixed drinks.

With that in mind, here are the ingredients you'll need to make a single serve of this award-winning Irish cocktail, the ideal accompaniment to the perfect playlist:

  • 60ml of Black Tea infused with Nutmeg, Clove, Cinnamon & Orange Peels
  • 45ml of Hennessy VS
  • 30ml of Pear & Ginger Syrup
  • 15ml of Lime Juice
  • 2 dashes of Peychaud Bitters


Please drink responsibly.
