Pretty Girl Rock Playlist!
Well, the weather outside has been nothing short of delightful these past few days, and I couldn’t be more excited. I love springtime! Not only is it my birthday season, but the weather is a mild blend of summer and autumn, flowers are in bloom. I can’t explain it, but spring seems like such a feminine season! It brings back high school memories of riding around the city with my friends, so this post is dedicated to the girly, bouncy, cutesy music some of our favorite Vixens have gifted us with throughout the years. Pump up your bass, roll down your windows and let the spring breeze blow through your fresh ‘do as we take a quick trip down memory lane!
1989-“Ladies First” x Queen Latifah feat. Monie Love
I first heard this song on “In Living Color.” The Fly Girls did a dance routine to it, and I spent the rest of my afternoon learning all the words. Ladies First put Queen Latifah on my radar; personally, I still consider it one of her best works. And Monie Love was everything on the track! You can’t help but feel empowered with this song bumpin through your system!
1995-“Don’t Take it Personal (Just One of Dem Days)” x Monica
Have you ever been around a group of females and heard Monica’s voice come through the speakers singing “Don’t Take it Personal”? Bet money everyone forgets whatever they were talking about and goes “This is my songgggg!” Monica was one of the popping-est young artists when I was growing up, and every Vixen in the world can relate to this song.
2001-“Bootylicious” x Destiny’s Child
C’mon now. Would any list of girly, bouncy, cutesy songs be complete without Bootylicious? A song that celebrated the jiggle in your thighs and the junk in ya trunk?? I think not.
2004-“Milkshake” x Kelis
This was my anthem in the eighth grade! I was obsessed with Kelis and loved everything about her–that bushy, pretty hair, those big doe eyes, the fact that she was dating Nas (whom I had loved since Illmatic)… She was everything in those low-rise jeans in the video!
