- Summer - Tshego - No Ties (MFR Souls Amapiano Remix)
Absolute summer vibes. The South African Amapiano is a lovely sound to listen to during a hot summer's day. 

- Precious memory - Phony Ppl - I Wish I Was A Chair

This song reminds me of my first trip to New York. I played it on repeat lots of times while walking around the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan. It was a hot summer, and I remember actually spotting the lead singer of the band (Elbee Thrie) during my trip!

- Nostalgic - Aretha Franklin - (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman
My parents played this song a thousand times when I was young. Dancing in the living room, singing along. I will always see flashbacks in my mind whenever I hear it. My mom and dad were big fans of Aretha.

- Heartbreak - Brian Mcknight - One Last Cry
Brian is THE king of composing and writing about love and heartbreak when it comes to R&B songs. I really admire his vision on songwriting. This one, in particular, is so sad. Its combination of very dramatic orchestral strings, dreamy piano + rhodes layers, and super smooth vocals and lyrics make you wanna feel sad even if you’re not heartbroken, lol.

- Lovesong - Musiq Soulchild - Settle For My Love (Feat. Aaries)
*Originally performed by Patrice Rushen.
I love this song. A lot. Whenever I hear this song, I genuinely feel as if I'm in love! The chemistry between the male and female is amazing. It truly gives me butterflies! 

- Party - KDaGreat - Never Too Much Feat. Nyce
I go wild whenever I hear or play this song!! I can never get enough of this crazy remix. I've been waiting for someone to do this song justice. Remixing songs is super cool, but it can also be very tricky. They did it tho, and it's definitely one of my fav party anthems!

- Guilty pleasure - Pearlchild - Caligurls+*
LOL!!! I absolutely love this flip. Even tho it has the acapella of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls”, it perfectly hits the beat that Pearlchild made. So there's my guilty pleasure, haha!!!
