Merry Christmas, y’all! You’re probably in the middle of watching the parade or maybe even enjoying breakfast with your loved ones, but I wanted to pop in and share a few albums and a playlist with y’all. I know that I’ve been sharing holiday playlists for a few weeks, but this week I’m doing something different.
One of my favorite artists decided to bless us by re-recording not one but TWO of her albums. Jojo was locked into a terrible contract with Blackground Records and essentially didn’t own her voice. Her first two albums, ‘Jojo’ and ‘The High Road’ haven’t been sold in stores or been available on streaming platforms for YEARS, but thanks to a Christmas miracle and the law working in her favor she was able to re-record and release the albums along with two new tracks just in time for Christmas! I know my co-workers were probably sick of me playing that first album all last Friday, but I don’t care. “Homeboy”, “Fairytales” and “Never Say Goodbye” will always be my jams. So I wanted to share those two albums with y’all today.
THEN OMARION MADE MY PRE-TEEN AND EARLY TEENAGE HEART DROP WITH THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE ‘MILLENNIUM TOUR’.
I refuse to misspell that word because they did. Now I don’t know who owns the rights to the ‘Scream Tour’ name, but they need to go ahead and let our boys use it because that’s essentially what this tour will be. B2K, Mario, Pretty Ricky, Lloyd, Chingy, Bobby V(alentino) and the Ying Yang Twins are going on tour next year and I will have my airbrushed t-shirt and Melissas ready! I will also have some Aleve on deck because these old joints aren’t what they used to be and I will be sore after singing and dancing like that all night. I was going to put together a playlist of all of the songs that I want on their setlists, but a friend of mine (and one of my favorite DJs) already did that so I’ll share his playlist below.
I hope you enjoy your holiday with your loved ones and get your coins ready. The tour dates for the ‘Millennium Tour’ will be announced on New Year’s Eve!
