So it’s the third-ever TGIF post, and I have to say, I’m having a great time vibing with everyone. It’s Friday, but earlier in the week, Black Twitter was alive during the Teddy Riley v Babyface battle (take two) on Instagram Live. So I got inspired and decided to make a playlist filled with the bops and bangers of old school R&B. Specifically the ‘80s and ‘90s. So sit back and enjoy the jams, and make sure to tune into Amazon Music Unlimited for the full version. They’re still doing 3 months of free listens!
