Well, folks, it took us long enough but former Vice President Joe Biden is now the President-elect, with Sen. Kamala Harris becoming the first Black and woman Vice President-elect. In our collective wait, we comprised a playlist to go on shuffle at your victory party kickback or gatherings, with the proper social distancing of course.

We opted out of droning on about the significance of the songs below because we wanted to let you, the savvy reader and listener, determine our angles. Some song choices will be obvious due to the nature of events and the fact Ol’ Boy ain’t gonna leave that post without a fight.

Joints like YG’s “FDT” remix with G-Eazy and Macklemore isn’t seeing the original, but the lyrics on the Stay Dangerous’ updated verse are too hard to miss. Basically, a no-brainer there.

Other choices such as James Brown’s “Shoot Your Shoot” is another one of the late Godfather of Soul’s classic jam sessions full of a line or two that will be easy to apply to anyone doubting the election outcome.

There are also spaces for the ladies to get their time in the light in celebration of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris becoming a living and shining inspiration to many young girls around the world due to the historic win so hence, Solange and Queen Bey’s respective selections. Other joints we just put in there because, hell, they sounded dope.

That said, we’re in a good mood and so are millions of others, so hit the playlist below, press play, and let out that tension with some dance moves.
