The first time I looked at this list, I realized that I hadn’t ever listened to most of these songs. After listening to them all, I realize because they are mainly Hip Hop/RnB tracks from before I was born. It was a good listen nonetheless and I walked away from it with a few new favorite songs (Rebecca Ferguson’s Too Good To Lose and Black Men United’s U Will Know). I’d hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the post’s title was a bit misleading. Most of these songs weren’t uplifting and a few ere a little sad. I still recommend checking out the playlist though. It was nice to listen to while doing some studying, especially when Eye of the Tiger came on towards the end.
