As a part of Billboard's Black History Month celebration, we've requested Black artists spanning all genres to compile their very own distinctive playlist unique to Billboard's Spotify account. Each tune they've selected represents their love for the tradition throughout the diaspora — from childhood favorites to songs that make them be happy. Today, Rapsody shares her soundtrack.
"There is not any revolution that girls aren’t the spine of, and this music is all about our sisters," Rapsody says. "I discovered learn how to be the girl I’m due to them. A playlist celebrating the ladies of black historical past who lead with energy, love, magnificence, dignity and pleasure from the sacrifices of Assata Shakur to the motherly love of Phylicia Rashad. Thank you."
Following the discharge of her Grammy-nominated album Laila's Wisdom in 2018, Rapsody is at present wrapping up her third studio album, which must be out this yr.
