There’s a little virus going around by the name of Corona. Her mysterious and stealth-like movements have inspired mass hysteria and panic. Big events are being canceled, travel bans are being thrown left and right, and offices with 50 people are shutting down. Should you find yourself in forced lockdown, check out the tracks below; they’ll keep you sane, hyped and prepared to combat Corona.
5. MOROCCO – ALINA BARAZ ft. 6LACK
Don’t you want to run away from Corona’s madness? “Morocco” will allow you to do just that!
In “Morocco,” Alina Baraz and 6LACK epitomize fluidity in a back and forth between verses that, aside from vocal quality, are almost indistinguishable. Chill out and block out the Corona noise with this smooth track.
4. WHATS POPPIN – JACK HARLOW
In times like these, we have to call upon some youthful fun energy. Kentucky rapper Jack Harlow brings all of that to “WHATS POPPIN.”
You can’t help but shoop to “WHATS POPPIN’s” playful beat that pairs perfectly with Harlow’s youngblood flow. The concoction gives you something to dance to while your conference call is on mute.
3. SAY SO – DOJA CAT
Doja Cat’s playful, glamorous and 70s-inspired hit called “Say So” will have you feeling like you’re at a kiki with your best friends. The song is such a great antidote to the cabin fever that will surely kick in after a couple days in quarantine.
2. TRYNA SMOKE- JHENÉ AIKO
No matter what your pastime of choice is, Jhené’s “Tryna Smoke” will have you floating on air. Fresh guitar riffs and otherworldly elements paired with Jhené’s sweet vocals are just what the Coronavirus doctor ordered.
1. CHANGES – TUPAC
Things may never be the same after this CoronaVirus pandemic, but this Tupac classic will have you feeling better about the future.
“Changes” will surely put a smile on your face, probably in self-ridicule, as you attempt to rap alongside Pac. An ingenious sample and steady pace are stables on this track and will have you nodding away as you respond to work emails.
