Every season, I like to curate a playlist for you guys to really set the mood. They reflect the energy and vibe of what's going on in culture, fashion, etc. This time of year is particularly golden because some of our favorite artists are dropping all new tracks. Drake, Adele, the 1975, One Direction. It's prime time people.
This season's playlist has a few of those names (okay, maybe more. I couldn't help myself.) I had no other choice but to add "Hotline Bling" and "Hello". Really, I didn't. Instead of the original versions of the mega hits "Drag Me Down" and "Perfect" by One Direction and "The Hills" by the Weeknd, have a listen to some alternative versions. I swear you'll like them better. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats's retro jam "S.O.B" is a stunner that may be new on your radar. And if you're not really into vintage tunes, just taste some Nina Simone and Otis Redding.
I know for die hards of all of these artists to see these names by each other may make you squirm, but breathe. Hopefully, if I'm doing this right, the playlist has some tracks that you've never heard. Listen to the playlist on the right sidebar of your screen.You won't be disappointed. AB
