{90s/2000s R&B playlist} for colored girls who are lost in their own mind when the current state of america just isn’t enough

In the words of the one and only Vic Mensa: there’s a lot going on. Whether it’s the aftermath of Charlottesville or the depressing state of our current legislation, current events have been quite suffocating (for lack of a better word). Personally, I’ve been quite on edge emotionally. I suffer from anxiety so it doesn’t take much to get me in a mind-state that I’d rather not be in. So, you can only imagine how I’m feeling right about now.

Over the years I’ve always utilized music in an effort to make myself feel better. Recently, I’ve put together this semi-short 90s R&B playlist on YouTube. It gives me the time that I need to decompress and clear out my head of the negativity and the nastiness. I figure, if anyone can get me out of this emotional black hole it’s Jodeci.

Take a 30-minute breather with me and listen to some soul-cleansing R&B.

What do you do to calm yourself down when you’re stressed out? I’m always looking for something new to try, so I’d appreciate the suggestion for sure.

  1. If I’m stressed, my favorite thing to do is bake and blast Sade through the house. It is so soothing for me and I get some bomb ass treats when I’m done! I also write, sometimes for my blog, sometimes for myself. Writing relieves so much stress.

  2. Don’t laugh, but i love 80s music (Shalamar and Switch) when I’m stressed. But, Nancy Wilson’s Daydream is what I listen to on flights – that’s how much she calms me. My hubby thinks my play list is a little corny, but it works for me – esp SWITCH ‘s song “Love over and over again”.
