Vocal U.S. Senator Kamala Harris is apparently also “Bad and Boujee,” at least based on her handpicked Spotify playlist celebrating June’s Black Music Month.
In addition to selecting tracks from her favorite genres — like R&B, jazz, gospel and reggae — Senator Harris included the Migos song “T-Shirt” in her playlist. Yes, Migos of the number one Billboard hit song “Bad and Boujee.”
The Senator’s wide ranging taste is evident in the 45 songs she chose to commemorate the annual celebration, which is alternatively called African-American Music Appreciation Month. She offers in a statement “No matter where you are from or what you look like, music is a bond that can bring us all together. To celebrate African-American music is to dance, sing, and even march to the rhythms that have long served as vehicles for honesty, inspiration, struggle, success and joy.”
Among her other selections are classic hip-hop bangers like Biggie's “Juicy,” “Everything is Everything” by Lauryn Hill and an instant classic, Childish Gambino’s “Redbone.” Harris ventures into soul and R&B with Stevie Wonder’s “Have a Talk with God” and Nina Simone’s “Sinnerman.” She’s also up on new jams, with a shout out to SZA’s “Pretty Little Birds.” And, because who isn't, Senator Harris is a Beyoncé fan. The Queen Bey’s “Love on Top” also makes a cameo in this epic playlist.
All we know is, if, and when Senator Harris becomes President Harris, the inauguration day performances and after parties are going to be LIT.
