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.

It looks like Erykah Badu and the man in her life are getting pretty serious. The “Bag Lady” singer sparked engagement rumors to 27-year-old artist JaRon Adkison after she shared a sweet message along with a photo dump that included a photo of the couple wearing matching rings.

My favorite time of year, coat season, is officially warming up and I’m looking forward to bringing the hottest looks this fall/winter. Getting a late start, it took me a while to narrow down my top preferences and decide which of these 2021 outerwear trends I’ll be wearing this year and hopefully next. From puffers to long line trench coats, it feels like the options are limitless when stalking the net for your next purchase but it's the styles that stand the test of time that make it all worth it.

A couple of years ago, I wrote an article for the site entitled, "Why You Should Stop Faking Orgasms ASAP". I'm pretty sure that you can tell from the title that I'm not particularly a fan of faking it. In fact, back in my "getting it in" days, I would have no problem letting a guy know that if he needed more motivation (cue Kelly Rowland) to get me to where I wanted to go. I was down for that more than acting like he was doing what needed to be done. Still, between all of the counseling that I do, the conversations that I've had and the research that I've done, I am more than just a little bit aware that a whopping 80 percent of women have faked orgasms and 1 out of 4 guys do it too (just because a man ejaculates, that doesn't mean he climaxed; that's another topic for another time, though).
