Songs of 2020

This has been said countless times, but this is the last day I can say this: 2020 has been a weird and fucked up year. I didn’t know if we should do a recap or even if we wanted to do a recap for 2020. With everybody stuck in the house for a majority of this year, I didn’t think we could all come together and make a list of the best songs or best albums of 2020. So why not just give everybody on The nappyafro Staff their own list of songs that got them through this crazy year? These are the songs that helped us survive the last 366 days. So long 2020. – B-Easy
