Music

It's finally Friday ladies, and whether you plan on staying in and getting some much-needed alone time or going out with your girls, you'll need some fresh new songs to add to your repertoire of bops and xoNecole has you covered, sis.

From Drake and Future's rags-to-riches visualization of their latest single "Life Is Good" to Meg Thee Stallion and Normani's #GirlGang banger from the new Birds of Prey soundtrack, this list of songs is guaranteed to set the ultimate mood.

Kick off your shoes and relax your feet, 'cause xoNecole is here with some fire ass beats for you to jam to this weekend. Keep scrolling for 10 songs you need to add to your weekend playlist ASAP:

Megan Thee Stallion & Normani (Birds of Prey: The Album) - "Diamonds" 

I didn't know I needed a jewel-incrusted bodysuit until today and now I need 12 of them. Meg spit all of the bars and Normani came through per the usual with her crazy dance moves that will have you in a one-man twerking competition (in the comfort of your car, of course).

Drake & Future - "Life Is Good" 

Teasing their sophomore joint album, Drake and Future dropped their video for "Life Is Good" and it's a Friday mood. We see the rappers as fry cooks, bakers, mechanics, and more in this comedic rap video with cameos from a few stars you might know.

Summer Walker - "Come Thru" (with Usher)

Although the 23-year-old singer released "Over It" last year, sis finally slid through with a video for "Come Thru" earlier this month which features a sultry Summer and an undeniably delicious Usher swerving through the streets of Atlanta giving us big old school R&B energy.

Alicia Keys - "Underdog" 

We can always count on Alicia Keys to pull up with an inspirational bop for the culture and "Underdog" is no exception. Co-written by Ed Sheeran, this guitar-infused track will make you feel seen AF.

Snoh Aalegra - "Whoa"

If you know me, you know I love me some Snoh Aalegra, and the fact that Michael B. Jordan makes me love her even more (and hate her just a little).

Halsey - "You should be sad"

Halsey unleashed her inner hot girl with this country-esque music video that has already amassed more than 1.4 million views in less than 14 hours. Featuring hella bundles, line dancing, a stallion, and cutthroat lyrics about an ex-boyfriend, this is the breakup song you didn't know you needed.

Mick Jenkins - "Carefree" Black Boy 

You know I had to pull up with some fresh heat for my die-hard hip-hop fans, and if you didn't know about Mick Jenkins before, now you know. On this soulful, 420-friendly track, Mick raps about the forces the come between his reality and truly living life as a "Carefree Black Boy".

Kehlani - "All Me" (feat. Keyshia Cole) 

If your plans are to be 100% boo'd up this weekend, this track needs to be added to your rotation ASAP.

Amindi - "Love Em Leave Em" (feat. Kari Faux) 

Jamaican singer Aminde linked up with rapper Kari Faux for this colorful collab that will have you feeling yourself all damn weekend.

Common - "My Fancy Free Future Love" (Tom Misch Remix)

After his latest release, Let Love, Common is back with a woke AF love letter to his future partner in love that promises a life of watching ATL, drinking wine, and ordering Postmates.

Although it tends to happen less and less (finally), sometimes I will still get skeptics who will ask me, "How are you qualified to work with married couples if you've never been married before?" While I have a few answers for that, as it specifically pertains to the topic at hand, how I'll oftentimes respond is, "I know what it's like to be a child of divorce. Twice, in fact. We've got more insight than you think."

Like most people, I have a love/hate relationship with Sundays.

But after the mimosas are gone, the food has been digested, and the music stops, I'm back at home, looking at my upcoming reality - Monday.
