Pandemic Pump Up
Happy Hump Day ladies and gents!!
So, I am sure a lot of you saw, last week we curated a playlist solely to put you in a good mood. How can you pass it up?? You can’t. Let me tell you why.
Everything is really crazy. Trust me, I know. With every passing day, comes a new challenge. Some of you may feel like you’re lost. If you’re anything like me, you’re questioning the entire five year plan you set for yourself. On the other hand, some of you may be feeling stuck, even if you are where you need to be. It’s extremely confusing, and being on lockdown is not any easier.
So, that’s where this playlist comes in. Personally, when I listen to music, I go to a whole new world. While I am still stuck in my head daydreaming, at least I am not stuck in my head worrying. You know? Another thing I love to do while blasting feel good music, is take a little drive with the windows down. Something we can all appreciate during this wild time is fresh air. Seems silly and a little miniscule, but try it! It’s freeing. This playlist is perfect for that. You know what else it’s perfect for? YOU GUESSED IT. Hot girl summer. I have said it once, but if you’re new here, it is also hot boy summer. Nobody is excluded.
While this playlist may not make you sweat like you’re 10 hours deep into your Coachella rave fest, it does add a little pep in your step. With powerful baddies like: Blackbear, Aminé, and Quadeca. Those are only a few! Now, if you’re super keen on details, you’ll notice I added a couple little features. A lot of our artists have been featured on OTHER artist’s tracks lately, and they’re just as good.
Right now, my favorite is, “Tinted Eyes.” Featuring Blackbear, this song does things to me. Is it 7am and I am grumpy on my way to spin class? Putting this on. Is it 1pm and I am still grumpy because my caffeine is wearing off? Putting this on. You get my vibe here? You cannot be grumpy listening to this. While this may be my flavor of the week, I encourage you to find yours. Maybe you need some rap. Quadeca could be the man to get your gears going. Again, go on a little drive. I find that you can really get more pumped by this playlist when your phone is not around. And OBVIOUSLY texting and driving is a no go. So, you’re FORCED to be alone with the music, and your big goals and dreams. Or, just your own version of carpool karaoke. Both are highly recommended.
Again, this playlist is meant to free your mind. Which, in turn, will get you amped. Like I said, times are insane. I am a big fan of change, but with something new and stressful everyday, I need a mental break sometimes. It is so important to take care of yourself, and do something that will benefit your mind and spirit during this pandemic. I hope this playlist helps you out with that.
‘Til next timeeeeeeeee
