Music Like This Is What Your Summer Playlist Needs

May 1, 2019

Before I Let Go

DJ! Drop that “Woahoohwoooahhooo” and let’s all experience the Black joy that this line dance-ready staple brings forth.

Beyoncé just released her own version of this Black family gathering classic, but can you even host a summer cookout without the 1981 original?

Joy and Pain

There hasn’t been a Saturday morning that didn’t include open windows and a Black matriarch blasting “Joy And Pain” all throughout the house since 1980.

Get that spring cleaning done in record time.

Can’t Get Over You

Heartache hurts. This 1989 classic makes it hurt a little less. Stay strong, fam. We feel your pain.

Golden Time Of Day

Get your two-step and sway on to this slow groove. This song has a gentle melody and relaxed tempo that will be the perfect background music for your next road trip.

While I’m Alone

We can’t prove it, but there’s something about “While I’m Alone” that, if played while making a meal, makes the food come out better. This song needs to be on your cooking playlist tonight! Chop some herbs, sprinkle some spices, and sneak a bite to Maze’s 1989 hit.
