long (but wholesome); birthdays
Greetings. Every day for the past 10 days, I have dropped the title of an album by a black musician on my personal account as my daily soundtrack. The list of albums is:
01. Michael Kiwanuka – KIWANUKA (Soul)
02. Noname – Telefone (Rap)
03. MNEK – Language (Pop)
04. serpentwithfeet – Apparition EP (Alt R&B)
05. Sheku Kanneh-Mason – Elgar (Classical)
06. Vagabon – Vagabon (Alternative)
07. Alicia Keys – HERE (R&B)
08. Corinne Bailey Rae – Corinne Bailey Rae (R&B)
09. Miles Davis & Robert Glasper – Everything’s Beautiful (Hip-hop/Jazz)
10. Janet Jackson – Unbreakable (Pop)
Today is my birthday. In lieu of a present, I ask that you choose one of the above albums that you have NOT heard before. Listen to it, all the way through. If you like what you hear, consider picking it up! (If the artist is on Bandcamp, note that profits from purchases made on Juneteenth [June 19] will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.)
Celebrate black lives! Support black musicians!
