Bitch­tapes: A Playlist by Sarah Love

Bitch: A Feminist Response to Pop Culture - - TRAVEL -

Trav­el­ing—whether to a new di­men­sion through movies and tv shows or on a road trip up the Cal­i­for­nia coast­line— ex­pands how we un­der­stand the world and each other. Those who travel fre­quently know that a great playlist is in­te­gral to the process. No trip is com­plete with­out great mu­sic! Sarah Love, a Caribbean Amer­i­can R&B and pop singer, is the ideal artist to cu­rate a Bitch­tape about travel be­cause her mu­sic is supremely fes­tive. Her first project, Tun­nel Vi­sion, reached 25,000 peo­ple through Sound­cloud and now she’s help­ing her fans use mu­sic to tap into their in­ner joy. This Bitch­tape is a cel­e­bra­tion be­cause trav­el­ing is one of life’s great­est joys.

Fu­ture and Drake, “Used to This”

I chose this as my num­ber-one song be­cause it just gives me pure va­ca­tion vibes. This is the per­fect song when you’re away, feel­ing good about your­self, en­joy­ing time with those around you, and em­brac­ing the mo­ment. You’re al­lowed to feel happy! Live in the mo­ment!

Sarah Love, “Any­ways”

This song is so much fun! It’s also em­pow­er­ing. I had a great time writ­ing and record­ing “Any­ways,” so it makes me happy to see peo­ple rock­ing and danc­ing to it. It’s a per­fect, per­fect travel song!

Ri­hanna fea­tur­ing Drake, “Work”

I chose “Work” for ev­ery rea­son pos­si­ble. It’s a clas­sic, sexy song that I play any and ev­ery­where and for (al­most) any and ev­ery oc­ca­sion. Imag­ine eat­ing grilled shrimp and sip­ping on a piña co­lada and ei­ther danc­ing with your girls or with that spe­cial some­one to this song. It will never get old. Ten years from now, we’ll still be lis­ten­ing to this time­less record.

Drake, “God’s Plan”

Clearly, I’m a Drake fan. “God’s Plan” has the best lyrics for a much-needed and well-de­served get­away! Even if you are on a busi­ness trip, this is the per­fect record to lis­ten to keep your spir­its up.

YFN Lucci fea­tur­ing PNB Rock, “Ev­ery­day We Lit”

I truly be­lieve this song can al­ways make some­one happy be­cause it speaks to the strug­gles we all go through and how good it feels to later cel­e­brate suc­cess. “Ev­ery­day We Lit” takes me back to when I lived in Mi­ami, spend­ing my week­ends on a yacht with my girls!

Jay-z and Kanye West, “Nig­gas in Paris”

It’s self-ex­plana­tory why this song is on my travel playlist: It’s nig­gas in Paris. Pe­riod.

Mi­gos fea­tur­ing Cardi B and Nicki Mi­naj, “Mo­tor­sport”

Do you want to feel cool, sexy, and bossy all at the same time while trav­el­ing? Play “Mo­tor­sport.” It is one of the best songs to get ready to! This song will re­mind you to look at your­self and re­mem­ber who you are. You’re cool! You’re sexy! So stand up straight and walk with con­fi­dence.

Childish Gambino, “Red­bone”

Childish Gambino, a.k.a. Don­ald Glover, did us a great fa­vor by giv­ing us this song. “Red­bone” pro­vides su­per feel-good vibes

Bob Mar­ley, “Ev­ery­thing’s Gonna Be Al­right”

Pos­i­tiv­ity pre­vails. If you find your­self need­ing a pick-me-up while trav­el­ing, just pop in a record from Bob Mar­ley.

French Mon­tana and Swae Lee, “Un­for­get­table”

Thank you, French and Swae, for this epic record! Thank you to Zoe, their A&R, for putting the song to­gether. “Un­for­get­table” is the best song to end my travel playlist. Not only was the video shot in Uganda, but the song is per­fect for an un­for­get­table mo­ment or va­ca­tion mem­ory.
