The “Before School Starts” Playlist


1 More Week Left!

At least for the Boston University Students, that is. It’s that time of winter break when you start to realize you kind of want your social life back but you fear the thought of studying and doing homework again! So, to keep you settled and get you excited for the new semester, while also keeping away from the negative mindset, here’s a playlist made for just “Before School Starts.”

We need to crank some of the best tunes that have been graciously given to us now, and that includes some new hits that just dropped in the past week *cough cough ~ Ed Sheeran* and film scores that swept the Golden Globes *cough cough ~ La La Land * Hmm, maybe I’m catching a cold.

But if we really know collegiate party music, then let’s be honest, it’s going to be a lot of electro-pop and R&B and that includes artists such as: The Weeknd, Cashmere Cat, The Chainsmokers, KREAM, SOHN, Kriss Kross, G-Eazy, ZAYN, Steve Aoki, Martin Jensen, Jon Bellion, and of course many many more.

Of all of the songs in this playlist, I have to say “Some Kind Of Drug” is a pretty incredible track, and I am very impressed with G-Eazy and Marc E. Bassy’s collaboration on this record. If you haven’t already listen to it, then you definitely better give it a shot (no pun intended). It’s a song with a great beat and the right vibe. It’s chill with a little excitement. It puts you in the “relax” mindset and it’s the perfect intimate jam. The vocals matched with the rap bars very well as they merged and converged into a tight nit, but loosely constructed song.

And of course, we can’t forget about Sheeran who has finally returned to us after some silence! And of course, his latest release is a hit! Go listen to “Shape of You” now and get jammin’!

School isn’t here yet, so let’s crank some uplifting tunes before it does start! Press Play!
