June Playlist: The Best Jams From Your Fave VH1 Shows

At VH1, countless hours are spent determining what music best complements our shows. This past month was no different as VH1’s CMI team worked to synch the best tracks to shows like Mob Wives Chicago and Single Ladies 2, tunes that added an extra spark to the drama onscreen.

To this end, we’ve put together a list of all the songs featured on our network in June — from artists like Timomatic, Emeli Sande, and up-and-comer Elle King.
