It’s time for Cupid’s Hunt again!!!! 6 years strong. I am so proud to be part of such an awesome group of podcasters.
I decided to get raunchy with it this year. I love R. Kelly. That’s right..I said it. I LOVE THE R. Despite his character failings, I still love his music. In the 90′s, R. Kelly almost single-handedly revived R&B. When he says he put the “R” in R&B, he ain’t lying! When Bump N Grind dropped in 1993, it spent 12 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot R&B Singles chart. We LOVED the frank nature of his songs and he never let us down. On every album, The R. supplied us with songs about sex and love, and sometimes the two were interchangeable. I don’t judge an artist for his personal life, I deal with the music. So I hope you enjoy this mix of my favorite R. Kelly Sex Songs and again..I am not responsible for any babies made while listening to this mix. No child support here
Look underneath the track listing for a full explanation of Cupid’s Hunt and the mixes from the other participants! I have been downloading these mixes all weekend!!!
I have had a dancing bug for a while now. I needed a mix that would make me drop it low and remind me of all those great nights dancing in the club. I came up with this jamming mixtape. All R&B with some rap collabos sprinkled in. At first I stopped at 59 minutes and my sister Divalicious made me go back into the lab and add more songs. She wanted her full 80 minutes and she didn’t want to be cheated! Anything Divalicious wants, she gets! I have to admit…she was right! LOL So I hope you enjoy this mix and that it helps you dance!
I have always been a Rihanna fan. To me…she is the Princess of Pop of the Millennium. She has some of the best dance tracks I’ve ever heard. I’ve lived through most of the stuff she sings about and her Girl Power songs make me feel empowered. I’m looking forward to her new album and this is [...]
Hey Everybody..Welcome to the 90′s Cuffing Season Lovemaking Mix
That’s right..It’s Cuffing Season again! Last year I did the 80′s and well this year..we’ve let loose some of the old players and we have a new quarterback! So I’ve moved up a decade and I’m doing the 90′s! It’s full of some of my favorite 90′s R&B love songs and lovemaking songs. I plead the 5th I haven’t made something so sweet in a long time so relax and enjoy your ride.
We all know that I am a HUGE Prince fan. I also recently went back to attending church. So I coupled my resurgence of faith with the Purple One’s love of God and came up with this mix. Some songs I chose for the outright worship of the Most High. Others I chose for their references to scripture or biblical stories. I picked some because of the beautiful way Prince sung about Adam and Eve and what it must have been like for the first man and first woman. I always felt he sung about that story beautifully.
I hope you enjoy and remember that “Love is God and God is Love”.
I love making concept mixtapes. Butta from Soulbounce asked to create an old school mix for the 5th Blog Anniversary and when she sent me the cover art I knew what I had to do. This mixtape is full of hip hop dance tracks from 1980-1985. I remember listening to many of these songs as a pre-teen and although this is vintage music, I think you will still enjoy the trip down memory lane! Thanks Soulbounce for the request and as always I am truly honored to be one of your mixologists!!
This week’s Monday Mixtape was inspired by both the UnSung episode of The Marvelettes and by the Spotify playlist of the beautiful and talented Danyel Smith. Ms. @Danamo is writing a book on the role of black women in the Pop music. I had so much fun with her playlist that I decided to make a mix. These 20 songs will always be classics and hopefully my mix will be a learning experience for some.
Hey Everybody. This mixtape is a dedication to my new friend Mr. Red and also a salute to the R&B from the year 2005. As with many of my mixes, the concept usually starts from a couple of songs and grows from there. In this case it was Yo (Excuse Me Miss) and You Don’t Know My Name. Those two songs kept swirling around in my head whenever I thought of Mr. Red and how we met in November, so I did some research and came up with a playlist on Spotify. I thought it was private until I noticed people subscribing to it. Also in 2005, two of my favorite producers Pharrell and Timberland were churning out hit after hit. I attended a Neptunes vs. Timberland party recently and I decided to go ahead and make a mixtape out of the list.
A long convoluted story right? For those that were there at @KittyBradshaw ‘s birthday party …(@f_uitlist and @TheJadedNYer you were there..lol) you know that I’ve been holding on to this for a minute! LOL The backstory was so sweet though. A cute guy, staring at you the whole night during a party. You feel the attraction and so much is said through the meaningful looks, but neither of you makes a move. It’s a dope party and before you know it the night is over. There is one brief exchange, neither of you get the other’s number or their name, and you walk away thinking what could have been. Until he finds you on Facebook LOL
And if you’re wondering…he’s more handsome than the guy in the cover pic…and he was wearing that red sweater too
This Monday Mixtape is a special birthday request for Smarty’s World. Smarty is a wonderful writer/blogger from North Carolina that I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting in person yet, but we have become pretty close online. She had been mentioning that she really wanted a customized mix of her own for her 30th birthday [...]
This Milk and Cookies mixtape is one that I promised my daughters. I love new R&B and lately we have been listening to a lot of the same songs even though they are 13 and I’m…well..LOL! Some of these songs refuse to give up their grip on me and many of them are very explicit. [...]
