Summer is not complete without a proper soundtrack, but what truly dictates the bookends for this fairest of seasons?
The songs we danced to, the songs we cried to: Robyn, The Ramones, Sublime, Ella Fitzgerald, Cardi B, and, of course, Prince.
Ballads that bare it all come from deep within, but what about the strains and shanties that channel from the inside to the out?
Arias without articulation; jazz without jargon; lyrics without locution aren't lyrics at all. Music is a universal language; an expressive entity that blurs borders and towers translation.
From children to their mothers and mothers to their children, these odes spin allegories and anecdotes about life, love, and loss.
These modern chants have been tested and approved to make you feel bold, brazen, and maybe just a little badass.
A sexy playlist for you.
