Happy Friday. This week has continued to be just as wild as the last, but instead of tunes inspiring you to email your local officials or safely protesting in the streets, I’ve decided to curate a playlist full of joints for genuine self-care. It is ok to log off, to spend time with the ones you love, and decompress. So here’s to doing just that. Make sure to tune into Amazon Music Unlimited for the full version. They’re still doing 3 months of FREE listens.

2. “Window Seat” —Erykah Badu

3. “Golden” —Jill Scott

4. “Brown Skin” —India.Arie

6. “Got ‘Til It’s Gone” —Janet Jackson
