This week our playlist is taking it back to the R&B classics from the early 2000s! These songs take us back to a much simpler time…. when we thought love was just like the telenovelas, we voted for Kelly Clarkson to become the first American Idol and our biggest worry involved which paleta we wanted from the ice cream truck that was roaming around our neighborhood.
Music is definitely one of the best ways to try to bring positive vibes into your day. More specifically, great music from amazing artists. Since everyone (or at least most people) love Rihanna and Beyoncé……. our MICHE MIX OF THE WEEK presents our second VS sing-off playlist containing songs from these musical geniuses. Hits from Rihanna go “head to head” with songs from Beyoncé’s solo career. This created the perfect playlist for fans of these two musical superstars since it includes songs from the various stages of their careers. Some songs that featured Rihanna or Beyoncé are part of this mix as well. Don’t get it twisted, this playlist does not include any Destiny’s Child songs (even though they’re amazing) since it wasn’t just Beyoncé putting in work.
This week we decided to update our very first MICHE MIX OF THE WEEK. It was the one that contained the early 2000’s R&B hits. It was a time period that gave us some of the best R&B songs of all time. (Feel free to fight us on that one.) The early 2000’s gave us those songs that made you want to get up and dance. There was also those songs that made you want to believe in love again. Yet, you can't forget about those jams that made you hate that evil desgraciado/desgraciada that broke your heart into a million pieces even more. That happens to everyone, right? RIGHT!!!???
This MICHE MIX OF THE WEEK is meant to bring life and joy to any carnita asada gathering. This 50 song playlist (yes, it’s your lucky Monday because this week we’re giving you 50 jams) was a bit more challenging to put together because everyone has a different expectation for the music they expect to hear while grubbing on some grilled deliciousness with family and friends. The vibe of the entire gathering is heavily influenced by the genre and language of the music being played. One could easily go all hip-hop, reggaeton, banda, pop or salsa. So, we decided to make sure it had a little bit of everything. The playlist will definitely cheer you up and make you want to move. Since carne asadas involve people of all ages, we kept that in mind when constructing the playlist for this week. We know you’ll like it though!
Buckle up because we don’t think you all are ready for this one! This MICHE MIX OF THE WEEK is not for the faint of heart! We don’t suggest listening to this playlist loudly at work or while you’re hanging out with your abuelita. It’s a mix of naughty, “baby making” songs that can easily get you in trouble if you’re caught off guard. With that said, please make wise decisions out there! :P
