2009 Soul Train Awards - Arrivals

It’s the weekend, so it’s time to see your boo. Whether he’s your boo for the night, the month, or the rest of your life, bump these tracks to keep the vibe right.

1.The Roots- Break You Off

This song is perfect for getting in the mood. Got them heels on ladies? Well if you don’t, get them on, and if the vibe is right, let out your inner goddess on your man. Always wanted to dance for your man but never had the guts to do it? You only live once girl, you’re beautiful, get them heels on and dance. This song has the perfect balance of lyricism and rhythm for giving your first dance to your man. Not into that shit at all? Still bump this track to set the tone. A candle could help too.

2. Mos Def- Sex, Love & Money

Play this one for a fun beat that sets the energy high early on in the night. You into the drinking game? I’m a Henny or Heineken drinker, but if you’re into shots, take a couple to this one.

3. Fabolous- Rap & Sex

This one is self-explanatory. If I go more into it my parents might disown me. Either they’ll do it for that or my new tattoo. Fuck it. They’re gonna disown me eventually. This is another bomb ass one for dancing for your boo thing, and then if you’ve actually gotten to the good shit by the point, this joint will keep it going right. Especially if you’re high.

4. N.W.A.- Straight Outta Compton

This one is good for them really X rated moments. The harder paced ones. For love-making that can only be classified as “FTSOU” (aka “Fucking The Shit Outta You”).

5. Cole- Love Yourz

This one is for the more tender moments. For talking about that deep subject or for other moments that are slower paced and deep as well.

6. Bas ft. J. Cole- Lit

This one is for smoking. Period. Smoking cigarettes, weed, just make sure you smoke something to this one and like the song says get “lit.”

7. Kendrick Lamar ft. Dr. Dre- The Recipe

Get high to this one. Trust me, you will not regret it.

8. Brian McKnight- Anytime

For those of you in a serious relationship, this is the track to play for slow dancing with your love. It’s the weekend, when was the last time you had a real slow dance? If the answer is at a 6th Grade School Dance in a gymnasium, then get your ass to YouTube and play this song when you’re alone with bae. (At least this time you can get closer than an arm’s length away.)

9. Common ft. Mary J. Blige- Come Close

This song is just good vibes. If you want to smile, put the video on at the same time. Bump this for a beautiful feel good moment.

10. Craig David- Two Steps Back

If it’s getting late and you want a song to keep the vibe going and get your energy back up, listen to this one. It is the right mix of high energy without being too in your face, while giving you a throwback to get them senses going and bringing you back to back in the day, getting the conversation flowing again.

It’s the weekend. You work all fucking week, and now you get a chance to let your hair down and do whatever the fuck you want. Make it a good one.

Peace,

Arielle London
