It’s spring, I’m energetic, and I’m trying to push myself to be more active. This week’s playlist features a selection of songs that get me going right now. Of course two artists in particular are on my mind, Prince and Beyonce. If I can absorb a glimmer of the creativity, sexiness, and self-assuredness those icons pour(ed) into their music, I’ll be in for a great spring.
My Hot Tracks for the Week
- Prince, “Little Red Corvette”
- Prince, “Kiss”
- Prince, “I Would Die 4 U”
- Alex Newell, DJ Cassidy and Nile Rogers, “Kill the Lights”
- Fifth Harmony, “Work From Home”
- Zayn Malik, “Pillow Talk”
- Pia Mia, “Touch”
- Drake, “Hotline Bling” (Sam Smith’s Live Lounge cover gives the song new life)
- Empire of the Sun, “Walking on a Dream”
- Desiigner, “Panda”
- Beyonce, Lemonade*
*Okay so it’s not a song but an album–an EXPERIENCE. Listen to it all. This week I’m especially feeling Freedom. Powerful song plus amazing, beautiful, haunting, provocative imagery in the visual album.
