Alexa Play Tuesdays — The Heard You SIS edition:

For this week’s “Alexa Play Tuesdays —” I wanted to share some of the tunes that have pushed me through an extremely trying year. As it’s been a huge TRANSITIONAL year full of loss and gains I’ve heavily relied on music to just push me towards progression.

With the exception of my beloved Gospel artist, I’ve found myself honing into what the females have to say in terms of: confidence — fearlessly and shamelessly owning your truths (good and bad), love, heartache, and etc.

So, before we dive into the playlist trilogy I hope that you find the divine feminine energy that you need from within to push through whatever mood you find yourself in; and may you further bask into your QUEENSHIP!

Without further ado, please allow me to present the vibes:

GET UP AND AT EM’:
Is the early A.M. playlist. Whether it’s the gym, preparing to clock-in to your shift or preparing to tackle a full day of scholarly work…this playlist is strictly to get you in the mood to be the fye Queen you are. Now, some songs are ratchet (several in fact) but that’s okay because a little ratchet playlist is sometimes needed. As I’ve come to discover, life isn’t always about being “uptight, pressed and polish”. There’s nothing wrong with freeing yourself and hitting a twerk stance every now and then. In fact, when you’re in a pleasant mood you’re also in the prime mental space to be your best.

My rule is if it can make you twerk, it can motivate you to push through your day! It’s all about the vibes for this category!

So here’s to twerking your way through your goals!

Is all about the fee-fees (feelings). These are the joints you play when you:
