My last mix was all boys, so this one is all woman baby!
Some of these tunes I’ve been listening to for years, while others I only discovered recently. Either way, I’m a huge fan of all the ladies on this compilation. There’s some “rude bitches” on this mix and some bad girls drippin swagoo too! Some of these songs are about heart break, others are about breaking hearts and quite a few of them are about dealing with boys and wanting a man. Rye Rye rhymes about “doing her thang” while Lauryn warns us that some guys and dolls are only about “that thing, that thing, that thiiiiing!” Sistah Nancy sings “I never trouble no one. I’m a lady, not a man, MC is my ambition!”, according to Speech Debelle “overstanding is the key,” for Sarah Jones “the revolution will not happen between these thighs” and Bjork’s says “You can’t say no to hope; you can’t say no to happiness; tomorrow has never happened before and it doesn’t scare [her] at all.” This mix is a little all over the place in terms of genre but what these senoritas all have in common is they make friggin’ great music but also that they excude some serious girl power as soon as they open their mouths to sing or rap. Just listening to these songs makes me feel a little stronger, sassier and ready to take on the world.
