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.

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"

Here's Why You Should Ditch Fourth Of July And Have A Family Reunion Instead

“Who made the potato salad?” As summertime kicks off, this is the universal question that, without fail, will be asked at every barbeque and backyard kickback over the coming months. With the Fourth of July also nearing, summertime celebrations and cookouts will be in full force. However, as the tide begins to turn in this new day and age, more Black Americans are celebrating Juneteenth, instead of the Fourth of July, because, after all, there were still over 250,000 Black Americans enslaved in Galveston, Texas during this so-called Independence Day.
