I must say that my favorite R&B tracks were curated in the 90’s & early 2000’s. Too young to understand if there were any truth to these lyrics, so my feelings geared more towards fabricated fake heart break, or falling fake deep in love with my crush at school (I know I’m not the only one). Either way, if these songs did not make you feel some type of way, you weren’t really listening.
This summer consisted of many road trips with girlfriends who love music as much as me. We would play all of our favorite hip hop and R&B joints that weren’t all necessarily what was current on the radio. Yes, a lot of them were stuff we were listening to growing up. One song really stood out and haven’t been able to get it out of my head lately. Ashanti’s ‘Foolish’ is just one of those songs that you can just play and no belt out every single lyric to. This song will make you feel like you’re in the most bittersweet relationship playing tug of war with that heart of yours, but when you finally find the strength the leave, theres something always holding you back. Word to Ashanti. #ThrowbackThursday
