1) “Days Like This” Shaun Escoffery DJ Spinna

This track always reminds me of bright sunny days. It instantly brightens my mood and I feel like somehow everything will be alright.

2) 1960 What? The Remixes “1960 What? (Opolopo Kick & Bass Rerub)” Gregory Porter, Motema Music

The conviction and passion Gregory Porter sings with makes every melody hit straight to my core. Each lyric is a reflection of real life unfortunate events in our not-so-distant history and the driving drums and music mimic this fast-paced life we live.

3) Black Radio, “Gonna Be Alright” Robert Glasper, Blue Note

Robert Glasper & Ledisi make the perfect musical pair for this tune. I could vibe out to this song all day.

Every time I hear this sample, I stop what I’m doing and throw my hands in the air to bob my head. I just love it!

5) Family Dinner, “Free Your Dreams” Snarky Puppy ft Chantae Cann, GoundUP Music

Each lyric Chantae sings is literally how I feel every day I wake up. And she sings it so pure and effortless, It’s truly a slice of heaven on earth.

6) PJ Morton x Jojo “Say So” PJ Morton ft Jojo, Morton Records

PJ & Jojo on this track together is pure magic. For the first 3 days of listening to this song, I couldn’t do it without crying my eyes out. The realness of these lyrics is more common than one may think.
