Happy New Year! 2017 is behind us and now it’s time to make 2018 great!
Remember – Tunes Tuesday is now taking place on the first Tuesday of every month – we hope you join us!
And in case you missed it – here are my previous monthly playlists:
I love the New Year because it gives me a chance to reset and start things off on the right foot. I know that I’ll never be perfect, but there are always little things that I can do to be a better person. So I was really excited about this theme for Tunes Tuesday because I really wanted to find some songs that will help me keep things in perspective for the New Year…plus, they’re great songs for running! P.S. – these were my motivating songs for 2018:
I created a Spotify Playlist for 2018 Motivation, check it out below and keep reading to see the selections:
Where is the Love – Black Eyed Peas: Remember when Black Eyed Peas used to have messages in their songs? I recently listened to this one and the lyrics really made me think about the political climate we’re in today.
Feeling Good – Muse: A great cover of the Nina Simone classic – I like how this version really rocks!
The Mack – Nevada ft. Mark Morrison and Fetty Wap: I’ve already shared my love for the Return of the Mack so this updated version is a lot of fun.
Lovin’ Me – Faith Evans ft. Nicci Gilbert, Monifah, Syleena Johnson, KeKe Wyatt: Apparently this is the theme song from R&B Divas. I really enjoy the empowering message and the powerhouse vocals from all the ladies!
Human After All – Daft Punk: You might recall that I’m a pretty big Daft Punk fan. There are only 10 lyrics to the whole song…and that’s all I need for motivation!
What About Your Friends – TLC: I definitely think a lot about my friends…who I want to introduce or keep in my life and as you get older, it’s a lot harder to make friends! So this speaks to wanting more quality friendships in 2018.
Hate Me Now – Nas ft. Diddy: Again, I need a little empowerment this year….haha!
Good Times – CHIC: Hey, let’s celebrate and enjoy life!
Scars to Your Beautiful – Alessia Cara: You couldn’t run away from this song if you tried, lol.
Let’s Get Married (ReMarqable Remix) – Jagged Edge: I couldn’t help but give a shoutout to the fact that I’m getting married in 2018! 🙂
Who’s That Girl – Eve: I’ll always love the chorus to this song! Just insert your name when they say “Eve’s that girl…”, lol!
This Is Me – Kesha: This is a new Kesha song from the Greatest Show on Earth soundtrack…I really love the message.
Confident – Demi Lovato: She’s talking tough in this song, and I like it!
Bodak Yellow – Cardi B: Can I admit it was a LONG time before I even knew this song existed, let alone what it sounded like? But it’s pretty addictive!
Do My Thing – Estelle ft. Janelle Monae: I love how this song is upbeat with another great message about being yourself.
Just Fine – Mary J. Blige: How can you not get pumped after listening to this song!
Here’s all you have to do to link up with us for Tunes Tuesday – you’ll have all month to join in the fun!
For this specific link up we will operate on a monthly schedule. Each month will have a specific theme. You can take the theme any way you choose, just have fun with it! The link up will open the first Tuesday of every month and will be open all month!
