You've successfully made it through Week 37 of 2020 and if nobody else told you today, sis, I'm proud of you. Between death, depression, and social injustice, it's been hard to catch a break in the new decade but if there's one thing we can count on to keep our spirits lifted, it's the sound of music.
In the spirit of Stacktember, it's important to note that the upcoming work week is upon us, my good sister, so use this weekend as an opportunity to spark up and wind down with a bomb ass playlist before you get back on your grind.
With fresh new music from our favorites like Jazmine Sullivan, Jhene Aiko, and SZA, here's a list of 10 songs you'll want to keep on repeat all damn weekend.
Mulatto - "On God"
Earning a spot in the 2020 XXL Freshman Class, Mulatto has come a long way from the young artist we met on Jermaine Dupri's The Rap Game in 2016. With a new video for her single "On God", the rapper proves that she is a more-than-worthy contender in the male-dominated hip-hop industry.
Jhené Aiko - "Speak"
If there's one thing about Jhene Aiko, sis is going to raise your vibrational energy, whether you like it or not, and her latest ode to self-love, "Speak", is no exception.
Teyana Taylor - "Still"
I'ma let y'all finish, but Teyana Taylor had the coldest maternity photos of 2020. I said what I said, don't @ me, and she brought that same energy to her Black Panther-inspired video, "Still".
SZA - "Hit Different" ft. Ty Dolla $ign
SZA and Ty Dolla Sign recently linked up to release a visual for "Hit Different", the R&B bop that says what we're all thinking.
Disclosure, Kehlani, Syd - "Birthday"
I'm not sure what it is about birthdays and holidays that make you want to send that "Wyd" text to your exes, but the struggle is real and it's one that Kehlani and The Internet's Syd know well. These two R&B queens recently linked up with UK group, Disclosure to give us the weekend vibes we didn't know we needed.
Joyner Lucas feat. Ashanti - "Fall Slowly (Evolution)"
When I grow up, I want to age like Ashanti and that's on period. In her latest visual collaboration with Joyner Lucas, our good sister serves us all the looks and participates in a steamy make-out scene that would make a preacher sweat.
Jazmine Sullivan - "Lost One"
Now that fall has arrived, it's time to retire your knees until next summer and pull out the slow jams. Luckily, Jazmine Sullivan just dropped a single that is guaranteed to get you all the way in your feelings.
Chloe x Halle - "Do It" ft. Doja Cat, City Girls & Mulatto
Female empowerment in the industry is at an all-time high and we love to see it. Our good sisters Chloe x Halle tapped The City Girls, Doja Cat, and Mullatto for a remix to their hit song, "Do It" and there were bars for days.
Big Sean ft. Ty Dolla $ign, Jhené Aiko - "Body Language (Detroit 2 Preview)"
While Jhene and Big Sean let us know that their relationship was "None Of Our Concern" long ago, we can't help but love to see these two link up and give us a glimpse into their love story.
TOBE NWIGWE - "EAT"
This is now a Tobe & Fat Nwigwe stan post and this husband and wife duo's latest single is sure to make you a fan, too.
