Songs to help distract you from all the stress
By Valentina Yanez
(HOLLYWOOD, Calif.) — Election Day is coming up and since it seems like it is 2016 all over again, it is a very unsettling time for many of us.
The results of this election will directly affect many groups of people; one of them being people of color. Whether it is things getting worse or not improving at all for us, our lives are never at the focus.
For this reason, I would like to highlight and celebrate the creativity of people of color. Music has always helped me in times like these, and I think reminding ourselves that we are so much more than what others think, is valuable. So, I made a playlist on Spotify that spotlights the work of many talented musicians from genres including Reggaeton and Contemporary R&B.
I hope this playlist gives you a break from all the stress with songs like “Sundress” by A$AP Rocky or “Caramelo” by Ozuna. But also, please remember to get out and vote.
Here are some of the songs that will distract you from all the stress:
- “I THINK”
Tyler, The Creator
- “Baby Girl”
Chloe x Halle
- “Caramelo – Remix”
Ozuna ft. KAROL G and Myke Towers
Jhené Aiko ft. H.E.R.
