Galentine’s Day 2018 Playlist

anigif_enhanced-buzz-13301-1422878212-6

What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home and just kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas!

First introduced in 2010 during the second season of Parks & Recreation, Galentine’s Day is another Parks & Rec holiday that became a reality just like Treat Yo Self. Whether you are going out for drinks, having brunch, or just staying at home with your girls, check out a playlist below for your Galentine’s Day festivities.

Also, check out a clip from the first Galentine’s Day episode.

Taylor Swift Shows Her Love for R&B On New Spotify Playlist

2016-04-01-152848

Taylor Swift released an updated playlist of her favorite songs on Spotify, and while it had expected pop hits, it also included unexpected R&B.

Some of Taylor’s favorite songs include Majid Jordan’s “Her” from their first EP A Place Like This,  and “One I Want” from their latest album, The Space Between.  Another new edition on the list was Jhene Aiko with “While We’re Young.”

She included Kehlani again, who she first showed loved to in an Intagram post of her favorite songs in 2015, with “Honey”  and “Good Life.”

It always fun to see what music other people like, especially an artist. Any songs on here that you like as well? Listen to the playlist below.

Seven Best B Sides of 2017

At the end of the year, we usually highlight the hit singles of 2017 as our favorite songs. While “Location” and “Bounce Back” were definitely bangers, we definitely need to give roses to great songs that weren’t singles. Below are the best B Sides of 2017, hidden gems on albums that just didn’t make it to radio as official singles.

“Get It Together”-Drake ft Jorja Smith, More Life

drakemorelifeofficial

Do all the little things, little things, little things
That excites me
As your woman
Give me a kiss goodnight
Over the phone
When you’re working late
When you’re out of town

It’s funny that one of Drake’s best of the year barely features Drake; he is only on the chorus. English singer Jorja Smith is basically asking for her lover to not be trife and for them to get their shit together and make the relationship work. Drake tried several times to mix Euro club music and island sounds on More Life and this was his most successful attempt.

“Personal”-Kehlani, SWEETSEXYSAVAGE

sweetsexysavage

I got good heart, good soul, good sex
No stress, next for me is best
Don’t you run your mouth ’cause in this song I say it best

No pun intended, but I personally love this song. All cheese aside, the recurring theme of SweetSexySavage of independence and growth through pain was most prominent on this song, becoming one of my anthems of the year.

“Wild Irish Roses”-Smino, blkswn

blkswn

It ain’t no Backwoods on this side of town
Wanna ride with me to get some more?
Pick a couple of Wild Irish Roses

“Wild Irish Roses” was my favorite introduction track of 2017 because it set the tone of the album perfectly. The casualness of the Backwoods, the Wild Irish Roses and making a girl feel like she’s the only one there ran throughout the entire album.

“Don’t Get Too High”-Bryson Tiller, True To Self

25f27b933ed193df22a7f3a349b8e081-1000x1000x1

Damn shawty, you know love not the same way I do it
I’m the only drug you need to get you through it

Of course the beat goes hard on this song, but I love the contradictions of the lyrics. He’s asking this woman not to do all the things he himself does (getting high, partying, being selfish). It is a party song which is really an examination of the male’s mind.

“Let’s Go”-Khalid, American Teen

268x0w

Can you feel this energy?
This is the start of something great
We might… be a little late… hey
Hey, but at least we’re on our way

While “Young Dumb and Broke” was too pop of a follow up to the R&B heavy, “Location,” “Let’s Go” was the obvious next step in Khalid’s journey. It’s laid back attitude about the future gives the youthful vibes of “Young Dumb and Broke,” but maintaining Khalid’s brand of woozy R&B.

“Inspire Me”-Big Sean, I Decided.

bigseanidecided

My mama’s the man of the house
Mama you too good for them men
Even dad, you too good for him

Big Sean is known for having his signature inspirational song on each album (I Decided. had “Bigger Than Me”). However he also included an ode to this mother which is the best song about a mom since Kanye’s “Hey Mama.”

“Delicate”-Taylor Swift, reputation

standard-cover-grayscale-3000x3000-280dpi-cf8302f0-3e49-4d57-a942-e08106cb81be

Just think of the fun things we could do
‘Cause I like you

While non singles “Dress” and “Getaway Care” are getting the most attention off the album “reputation,” “Delicate” needs to get its due. What’s best about this song is its simple lyrics.  Its not a complicated story that only Taylor could tell, it is just about a girl liking a guy and not wanting to reveal too much to scare him away, a position that everyone has been in.

Check out all the songs in the playlist below.

Smino releases Spotify playlist based on his song “Netflix & Dusse”

Smino created a playlist inspired by his new single “Netflix & Dusse.” Featuring the ultimate music to set the mood for chill time…or more, with your significant other, highlights include OutKast’s “Vibrate,” Lumidee’s “Never Leave You,” and Saba’s “Most.”

I made my own playlist inspired by this. Featuring throwback “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” and current hit “Slide,” its great songs to talk and chill with.

Beyoncé releases playlist to celebrate 9th anniversary, check out the Spotify version

In celebration of her 9th wedding anniversary, Beyoncé released a playlist on Tidal of love songs. Some highlights include Frank Ocean’s “Pink + White” Drake’s “Get It Together” and Robin Thicke’s “Lost Without U.”

The playlist was on Tidal, but I made a Spotify version of it. It is missing the Lauryn Hill songs, but check out all the other songs below.

 

 

Chance The Rapper’s Bath Time Playlist (Spotify Version)

Chance The Rapper released a playlist of his favorite songs to listen to while taking a bath, a luxury he doesn’t get to indulge in all the time.

He treated his followers with a video of him singing Frank Ocean’s “Self Control” in the bath tub. He also showed off his mega speakers that he uses during bath tub.

While I’m more likely to listen though my iPhone speakers or bluetooth speakers, it will be nice to take some time out to take a bath with a bath bomb and this playlist.

Do you have a favorite bathroom time song? I like to listen to “Strawberry Bubblegum” by Justin Timberlake while brushing my teeth.
