8 Dope Songs To Add To Your Weekend Playlist Right Now

There's nothing that will take your mind off of a viral pandemic like a poppin' ass playlist.

Culture & Entertainment

The grocery stores are sold out of toilet paper, the kids have been let out of school, and it's quite clear that the next few weeks are going to be off the chain. With the coronavirus at our necks (both literally and figuratively), it seems best to undergo a self-quarantine at the crib for the next few weeks.

But there's nothing that will take your mind off of a viral pandemic like a poppin' ass playlist and xoNecole has you covered with a list of new music for you to check out ASAP. Scroll below for details:

1.Teyana Taylor - We Got Love ft. Ms. Lauryn Hill

Teyana Taylor linked up with Ms. Lauryn Hill and brought us all the way back to the motherland in their latest single to remind us that love is the new money. Featuring cameos from Teyana's husband, Iman Shumpert and baby Junie, "We Got Love" is the portrait of Black love we didn't know we needed in our lives this weekend.

2.TeaMarrr - Kinda Love (feat. D Smoke) 

This dope collaboration between TeaMarrr and Rhythm + Flow's D. Smoke gives us a glimpse into what it would be like to build the perfect man. This Black Mirror-style visual is the second visual that the artist has released since signing to Issa Rae's new label, Raedio.

3.Amber Mark - Generous (Official Video)

Underground R&B is on the rise and this Grammy-nominated songwriter is also taking flight. Giving us big Dorothy Dandridge energy, the singer channeled old Hollywood for the video of her sultry love song, "Generous".

4.Megan Thee Stallion - Captain Hook

Since the beginning of the month, Megan Thee Stallion has been in an intense legal battle with the owner of her former label, Carl Crawford of 1501, but that didn't stop the release of her latest album, Suga. Following the visual for her Tupac-sampled single "B.I.T.C.H", Megan threw a whole ass studio party in her latest video for "Captain Hook" and we're wondering how our invite got lost in the mail.

5.JoJo - Man 

As an old school JoJo fan, I'm not ashamed to say that I was way too excited about the release of her latest single. Starring Ari Lennox and Tinashe, this is the first visual released from her upcoming album, Good to Know, where the singer says what we're all thinking when it comes to romantic expectations.

6.Kiana Ledé - Forfeit.

Featuring Lucky Daye, Arizona-born singer "Ex" singer Kiana Lede just released the lyric video for her latest song "Forfeit", from her upcoming album, KIKI, and issa whole vibe.

7.DaniLeigh - Levi High ft. DaBaby

Despite being entangled in a possible legal battle earlier this month, DaBaby pulled up with the release of his latest Trap & B collaboration with Florida-born entertainer, DaniLeigh. In the silly visual, the two (who are rumored to be romantically linked) link up with a squad of baddies to pull off one helluva robbery.

8.Jhené Aiko - B.S. ft. H.E.R.

Last week, Jhene Aiko released her latest album, CHILOMBO, and brought out some of our favorite stars, including but not limited to Big Sean, Nas, and H.E.R., and this track has our Hot Girl Summer pregame playlist all the way together.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."

When it comes to sexuality, there have always been societal limitations centered on what is "acceptable." However, with more honest conversations about how fluid sexuality and sexual expression can be, now there are so many more opportunities for self-exploration and taking back ownership of our identities again. One couple that is living their truth and being sexual beings unapologetically while living and loving their lives are Jasmine Johnson and King Noire.
