We’ve got lots of variety this time around. This week we got music by Ravyn Lenae, Seyi Shay, and Kodie Shane. There is no throwback segment this week, but we have a few names and voices you might recognize. We’re winding down the summer this week.

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a huge music fan. I live and breathe it. I can’t imagine going a day without it. Obviously, I devote a lot of time to it, particularly with the music podcast and even with this show since music plays such a crucial part in it. But I never had any delusions of being a singer, musician, or anything else requiring music talent. But I am a lifelong fan, a stan even. I have my favorites, I have music I turn to when I’m in or need to feel a certain mood, and I have my background noise. But the one thing I can honestly say about myself is that I’m not a music snob.
Lots of positive energy for anyone looking for Blackgirl magic. This week we got music by Tarica June, Zalma Bour, and Melisa Whiskey. Our throwback segment takes us back to a pivotal moment in R&B/soul at the turn of the century. We get you all in your feelings this week.
Got lots of variety this week and lots of rap artists who’ve been bringing more needed female energy to the rap game. This week we got music by Young M.A., Sylvia Black and Kona. Our throwback segment has a tie in with another show you might be familiar with. Get ready for some nostalgia and a few women who made it in a big way this year.
*Apologies for the sound issues. Lost my voice at some point and recording volume is sometimes unpredictable with the program I used. So you might need to adjust volume a few times.
I try not to be one of those music or pop culture snobs who thinks everything was better in my time. I’m a 90s kid, 80s baby, 90s kid as the say. People my age carry lots of childhood nostalgia for all things 80s and have a fondness for the media that got them through those formative adolescent years in the 90s. It took me some time to find a special fondness for either. Perhaps it’s because I tend to have more bad memories rather than good except when it comes to the music, it’s taken so long for nostalgia to kick in and remind me of the good times.
