It’s that time of the week we put on our dancing shoes! This week we have Viv from vivsimone.com. Loving this playlist!
I document my motherhood experience and (try to) educate other first time mums the lessons I’ve learnt along the way. I’m 26 and a first time mum to my nine month old Aniyah. I love music and have such a varied taste. Trying to narrow down five songs was so hard, but here goes:
1. Gala – Freed From Desire
Although this was released when I was about 4 years old its such a classic and I’ve heard it at many house raves. I listen to the Kisstory radio station a lot, and when they play it I turn up the volume and start fist pumping.
2. Beyonce Ft Sean Paul – Baby Boy
I cannot keep still when I hear this song and still attempt to do Beyonce’s routine because I love the video choreography! I actually danced to this a few days before my due date in an attempt to bring on labour but it didn’t work.
3. Whitney Houston – It’s Not Right
Another 90’s banger! The beat is explosive and you just can’t help but sing your heart out to this one!
4. Mr Eazi Ft Haile and Stefflon Don – Skin Tight UK Remix
Afrobeats meets UK rap/R&B. I don’t understand all the lyrics tbh but I’ve loved this song for the past 2 years!
I didn’t think all my song choices would be old and after much deliberation at 2am I’ve settled on this one! It reminds me of my uni days; listening to this while we were pre-drinking and hearing it later again that night in the club. The second the beat drops my hips start moving.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my choices. You can find me on Instagram to chat more about music, life and everything else!
