Hello boys and girls. I hope you’re all doing well and keen for another little playlist dump. Today’s playlist I wanna share with you is a staple in my collection, reserved solely for when I’m getting ready to hang out with the girls, for while I’m with the girls, for when the girls and I are in the car or when I really start missing, you guessed it; the girls. My girl gang playlist is one of my favourites and it has a bunch of tunes, old and new. It spans decades and a couple of different era’s. Here’s a couple of tracks from the playlist, which you can also check out below. Let me know what you think!
Hello friends! I hope you’re all living and thriving now that we’re well and good into 2021! Today’s post is yet again just me sharing some good old music with you. Today’s theme? RnB. The good shit. Stuff that just makes you feel a certain way. Like you’re in an old school music video from 2001. One of my favourite genres of music, most definitely in my top three.
Making this list was hard. This year one of my goals was to really work on finessing my Spotify. Clean up all of my playlists, keep them rotating and curating a few more, but it’s a different story when it comes to my RnB playlist. I couldn’t tell you the last time that playlist was less than 100 songs. It’s currently sitting around 200 at the moment, and you’d be torturing me if you asked me to whittle it down further. It’s just not gonna happen. That said, it’s for that reason that the easiest thing for me to do while curating this post, was just throw the playlist on shuffle and share the first few that came on. I can’t lie, it’s how I make majority of these posts at this point.
If you’re interested in finding some more gems like the ones I’ve shared below, I’ve also thrown the playlist at the end of this post too so you can listen to the whole thing!!
So Into You – Tamia Get To Know You Better – Mary J Blige Weak – SWV Just Fine – Mary J Blige Love – Keyshia Cole Together Again – Janet Jackson You Make Me Wanna… – Usher Now or Never – Mya What About Us? – Brandy How Many Drinks? – Miguel Summer Rain – Carl Thomas Cupid – 112 Rain – SWV Soon As I Get Home – Faith Evans How Do I Breathe – Mario Follow Me – Usher If You Had My Love – Jennifer Lopez
Hello friends! Hope you’re all well and looking for some new music because at the moment that’s all I have for you. I’m currently in Tasmania, on a very last minute family trip, enjoying a bunch of beautiful scenery and hiking a bit more than I’m used to, but I still prepared a small selection of new music I’ve been loving for you guys while I’m gone.
You can find all of these songs on my Spotify playlist as well as a bunch of other tracks that I reckon you need to hear! I’m making a bit more of an effort to keep my Spotify moving, keep a good rotation with adding new songs, getting rid of old songs, updating playlists and continuously providing you with fresh tunes and updated vibes, so let me know if you check it out!!

There’s something about a gal just singing that makes everyone feel empowered. Like, a woman completely embodying herself and letting rip, just hits different.
Good morning/afternoon/evening boys and girls, and welcome to one of my favourite playlists ever.
This is one of my favourites because every artist on this playlist has a stupidly, offensively good voice. Whether you’re listening as an avid fan, a casual listener or a keen-eared musician, every artist on this playlist delivers, and every time I listen to it, I find myself making all sorts of faces in awe and admiration.
A quick scroll through the playlist the other day revealed to me … of the 84 songs currently on the playlist, only 16 are sung by or feature male vocalists. Meaning, to my absolute joy, of this playlist, that brings me so much joy on the daily, nearly 80% of the songs were sung by kick-ass females.
So, what better way to celebrate this discovery than forcing you to discover yourself.
Treat me Like I’m All Yours – Sasha Keable Ego – Beyonce Ups & Downs – Shavaun Marie The Honey – SAYGRACE 2000 n Somethin – Kaiit Can’t Wait – Jill Scott Once – Maren Morris Evergreen – YEBBA Love by You – KIRBY The Night Song – Ravyn Lenae Still – Teyana Taylor Don’t Let Me Down – Joy Crookes Have Mercy – Eryn Allen Kane Love The Things You Do – Pip Millet Familiar. – Madison Ryann Ward Love On The Brain – Rihanna Find Someone Like You – Snoh Aalegra
These are just a handful of songs you’ll find on the sang playlist, which you can find here:
Let me know what you think – I’d love to hear your thoughts! My favourite thing ever is showing new people some of the women in this playlist and watching their faces transform in absolute awe, because honestly it’s just a personal throwback to the first time I ever listened to these incredible artists!
Hello everyone and welcome to another playlist deep dive! For today’s post I thought I’d take you through one of my more chilled playlists, sunday morning. Formerly known as my ‘kitchen‘ playlist, sunday morning is as simple as it seems. You’ve had a long Saturday night, you’ve woken up on Sunday morning, probably closer to Sunday afternoon, and you just need a chilled, groovy playlist to form the soundtrack for the first few hours of the day.
Whether you’re making a cup of coffee, transitioning from your bed to the couch or recounting the night’s adventures with some room-mates, I promise you, the sunday morning playlist will have you chilled the heck out.
Here’s a couple tracks to get you started, otherwise you can check out the playlist HERE or at the bottom of the post.
Skin – Dijon Powerslide – Ryan Beatty orange – CLAY Second Time – Bruno Major Nervous – Shawn Mendes To Dance Is To Love – Charlie Burg Never Give Up – L.A.B Come Over – Social Street Booster Seat – Spacey Jane Don’t Waste It – AUGUST 08 Still In Love – Thirdstory Sunday Candy – Cenji 4 Seasons – Rex Orange County
Hello friends! I hope you’re all well. I just thought I’d check in as I sporadically tend to do, but not empty handed – I clearly have some tunes I believe you all need to hear. I’ve been listening to an abundance of new music recently, especially music coming out of Australia, so there’s a fair few Australian artists in this little ‘song dump’ I’m presenting to you.
Let me know if you give any of these songs a listen, I’d love to know if you find a new track to add to your playlists. That said, if you rather someone else to do the work for you, I’ve done all the heavy lifting and compiled a playlist packed with these songs plus heaps more, which you can listen to HERE. Otherwise, you can check out the rest of the playlists I’ve created, on my Spotify HERE.
Here’s the tracks.
Somebody Loves You – Carla Wehbe baby blue – demspey hope, Olivia O’Brien Wobble – King Green Tv – Araya Keynote Interlude – UNO Stereo, Jordan Dennis 20 Year Dream – The Neighbourhood Watch Please U – Becca Hatch, Planet Vegeta Disco Man – Remi Wolf Trippin – Kara Marni dust – RIMON FRIENDS – Carliane Tamara Like I Do – Alisya Rae Come In To Love – Ellen Mara
Hello friends! I’m back with another playlist to shamelessly plug. This one actually means a whole lot to me, so I’d really appreciate it if you stuck around and even had a listen!
I love talking about POC artists, especially here in Australia, and we’re not short on a diverse range of artists, however I always find that they’re never represented or shared on a larger scale as much as they ought to be.
Example; January in Australia is a hectic month. There’s a lot going on, and a key event for quite a few people, especially those aged between 15-30, is the Triple J Hottest 100 countdown, where popular radio station Triple J, counts down the hottest 100 songs from the previous year. It’s a big deal. Everyone votes for their top ten favourite tracks, then the votes are counted and we have an entire day dedicated to the countdown. You hang out with friends, usually have some drinks and food out in the sun as it’s consistently a good weather day, and it’s one of the only days when no-one’s in charge of the AUX, because you’ve got the radio on. This year I spent Hottest 100 day at my best friends house, swimming in the pool, having a few drinks, making delicious cheese boards and having the radio on full blast so we could provide our own, even louder commentary, to the songs that made the cut.
It was a good day, I’ll give it that. But the closer and closer we got to the No. 1 spot, the more and more I was realising that hardly any of the POC artists I knew and loved, a lot of whom I discovered through the radio station itself, had even cracked the Top 100. There were a few fantastic exceptions, but there were also some glaringly obvious gaps. We don’t have to talk about the fact that it wasn’t even an Australian artist who came 1st, but the complete lack of diversity in the collection really got to me. So much so, that ya girl did what she does best, and made a playlist.
I created the decolonise ya self playlist, because I just know there are so many talented artists from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities in Australia, yet when it comes to commercial radio, and even a supposedly ‘people-powered’ radio show, these artists fail to be represented or given the airtime they deserve. I also included a lot of NZ artists in the playlist because we love New Zealand music around these parts.
Here’s a taste of some of the songs you can find on the playlist, which you can listen to HERE:
Clumsy Love – Thelma Plum The Truth – Man Made Mountain, Sampa the Great Be Free – Soli, Mez Mariye Colours – Amila Please U – Becca Hatch, Planet Vegeta Don’t Need You – Genesis Owusu Serious – NEKO 24k – Tkay Maidza Cleopatra – Thandi Phoenix Come Over – Social Street Poor Boy – Stan Walker Out of the Blue – RINI Idiot – Kira Puru Twisting Words – Miiesha Black Face – Ziggy Ramo One Time – Antoine Not My Neighbour – Niko Walters OG Luv Kush pt.2 – Kaiit
I hope you get a chance to listen to the playlist and discover a bunch of new Australian and New Zealand artists you may not have heard of. With so many incredible artists releasing amazing tracks so consistently, it’s not hard to champion these artists and their music. You can definitely count on me to do it.

I know what you’re thinking. I know, I live in suburban Melbourne, the occurrences where I find myself ‘driving in the desert’ are slim to none on an annual basis. However, just because they’re slim, doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Sometimes, you find yourself on a super duper long ride with your friend Tess on the way to an unheard of festival on a farm that none of your other friends wanted to come to, and you just need…the vibe??
Here’s the vibe.
We’re doing another deep dive into one of my Spotify playlists, driving in the desert, which you can follow here. This is one of the playlists I created during the midst of Melbourne’s first lockdown last year, and here we are now in 2021, still thriving with this playlist, going strong. I love it like a child.
Here’s a list of my favourite songs from the playlist, but be sure to head to my Spotify to check it out for yourself!
Little Lion Man – Mumford & Sons Wasteland, Baby! – Hozier Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club – The Beatles Cherub – Ball Park Music Godspeed – Frank Ocean Beach Baby – Bon Iver Sleep On The Floor – The Lumineers Drive – Ironess Badge And Gun – John Mayer I’d Rather Go Blind – Etta James Forever You and Me – The Teskey Brothers Sundress – A$AP Rocky River – Leon Bridges
That’s just a few of the tunes from the driving in the desert playlist, and there’s plenty more where that came from. One of my 2021 goals is to really get the Spotify up and going, more-so than it already is, so throw us a follow and like the playlists because I’ll be regularly updating them all with new songs that fit the vibe just perfectly.
