Back in the day, I remember singing along to my favorite singers, just chillin’ on a typical Saturday afternoon. I miss those days.
back in the day: volume 1 (7 favorite black female musicians biggest hits)
But since I have no plans to leave my house unless absolutely necessary these days, I get a chance to revisit the music that gave me so much pleasure back in the day.
This is the first volume of my favorite tunes I grew up on. In this edition, check out 7 of my favorite black female musicians and some of their biggest hit songs.
