The moment all New Yorkers have all been dying for is finally here… spring! This season isn’t only for playing with new pops of color or funky patterns, but it’s also time to break out the feel-good tunes. The glo-up is real for the way this weather has been looking and we at TTS wanted to send out positive vibes through song. We partnered up with three Boss Babe DJ/ Influencers to handpick the best jams to help kick off the month of April.
If you’re about that #TBT or #FBF life, take a stroll down memory lane with model & half of the DJ duo Isaac Likes Jenny, Jenny Albright! She chose 15 songs that made the ultimate throwback playlist which she claims, “is taken straight from the CD’s my best friend and I would burn in high school. We’d blast them on the five-hour drive down to Gulf Shores Beach in Alabama.”
Top 3 Songs:
1. Mr. Carter – Lil Wayne ft Jay-Z
“I grew up in the south and Lil Wayne was IT. We named our class rabbit Weezy. Tha Carter III came out when I was in high school and I was OBSESSSSED. I still am. I probably listen to at least one song off that album every day lollll.”
2. Lovers and Friends – Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz ft Usher and Ludacris
“This is my favorite song of all time to play out. Always a banger.”
And because Jenny is so awesome, here are two more playlists to add to your arsenal.
If you’re still getting adjusted to the weather and have hot and cold feelings towards spring, this playlist by Boss Babes and DJ/ Producers Angel & Dren is a perfect blend of both chill and turn-up vibes, hence it being entitled “It’s a Vibe.” There’s definitely levels to this playlist! “For us, this playlist is the difference in mood between winter and spring. It’s the difference between staying in and going out, and there’s also nothing like NYC when it’s warm outside.’It’s a Vibe,'” says Angel and Dren
Top 4 Songs:
1. Prblms – 6LACK
“Super chill track that is perfect for easing into the day or for a late-night playlist.”
2. Run Up – Major Lazer & PARTYNEXTDOOR
“This track makes you feel like you want to be out in the sun. Super feel good and the Caribbean vibe is perfect for the change of season.”
3. It’s A Vibe – 2Chainz feat. Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz, Jhené Aiko
“Smooth track that puts you in the perfect mood to get out of the house. Put this one on when you need that extra motivation.”
4. KMT – Drake
“This new Drake is a turn-up anthem and Giggs is one of our fave grime artists right now!”
You literally can’t get any more spring than this! Boss Babe and DJ/ Influencer Pamela Katz put together a playlist entitled “Spring Awakening.” These tunes are all about shaking off the dead of winter and ready to spring forward. P.S. get ready to dance! “[‘Spring Awakening’] is about the feel-good vibes and uplifting beats. To me, this music is refreshing and majestic. After being in winter mode, it’s a good transition into summer’s mood and groove,” states Pamela Katz.
