Thank goodness it’s Friday. It’s Memorial Day weekend, which means most of y’all will be BBQ-ing with your family or designated quarantine squad. What better soundtrack to celebrate with than Alt R&B? It’s like R&B, but alternative! You can sit back and jam to Ms. SZA, FKA Twigs, Thundercat, and more. Make sure to tune into Amazon Music Unlimited for the full version. They’re still doing 3 months of FREE listens.
