Take it from someone who is NOT a morning person, having a playlist to get up to in the morning has changed my life!
I’m positive that everyone has days where all they want to do is turn off their alarm and fall right back to sleep. For those of us with jobs, school, or even just errands to run, this isn’t possible. One way to get energized and to get ready for the day is to have some music playing as soon as you get up!
Here’s a few tracks to get you up and out of that bed!
“SOUND AND COLOR” – ALABAMA SHAKES
Start things off soft and slow with this Alabama Shakes tune. If Brittany Howard’s voice doesn’t make you want to get up and start moving, there’s no hope for you! I can almost guarantee that once the beat kicks in on this song, you’ll be up and ready to start your day.
“CHOCOLATE HILLS” – KHRUANGBIN & LEON BRIDGES
Now that you’re more awake and finally out of your bed here’s a song to float around your room to. Whether you’re picking out an outfit, making your bed or just stretching, this calming song from Leon Bridges and Khruangbin will get you in the right mood.
“HOME MAKER” – SUDAN ARCHIVES
Let’s speed things up a little bit with this iconic song from Sudan Archives. Sudan Archives mesmerizes with her sultry voice, incredible violin instrumentals and a perfect bass and back track. Dance around while you get ready for your day, I promise it WILL improve your vibe!
“WHEREVER YOU ARE” – KALPEE & JIMMY OCTOBER
Forever a firm believer in putting some Caribbean vibes into your morning! This track from Trinidad and Tobago’s Kalpee and Jimmy October makes me feel like I can do anything. Listening to this song is a great way to start your day. Add this one to your playlist IMMEDIATELY.
“FOUNTAINS” – DRAKE (FEAT. TEMS)
The low end on this track is literally perfect! The bass in the chorus doesn’t distract from Tems’ magical vocals. I could listen to this song on repeat for hours! (Maybe an unpopular opinion, but this has to be my favourite song off of Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy”)
“WAT U SED” – ISAIAH RASHAD (FEAT. DOECHII & KAL BANX)
It’s never too early to shake some a$$. Get your body moving to this chill rap tune from Isaiah Rashad. Doechii kills her verse and if you don’t feel like dancing to this track…maybe try getting back into bed and starting over again!
“DRIBBLE” – SYCCO
This one is for all my people that put on makeup in the morning. Dance around your room or your bathroom with your makeup brush in your hand and apply that glam with some groove in your system! Sycco never disappoints with her high energy tracks.
“CASIO” – JUNGLE
Speaking of getting some groove into your system, here’s the grooviest song on the playlist! There’s nothing I love more than Jungle’s music videos. There’s no comparison between these amazing dancers in the music video and me dancing around my room in the morning…BUT I’m definitely trying my best and I’m having FUN!
“INTIMIDATED” – KAYTRANADA (feat. H.E.R.)
Any Kaytranada track is 100% going to make your day better, especially this song with H.E.R. Kaytranada’s beats feel like sunshine. I hope this song gives you the energy you need.
“STAY FLO” – SOLANGE
Not including Solange on this playlist would be a SIN. This has to be one of my favourite tracks from Solange.
Hopefully this playlist helps you to get up and get at em’ in the morning!
