To get a Black woman's attention, an artist better put their all into a song and sing about our struggles, our triumphs, our pain, and our immeasurable joy. In other words, they better sang their hearts out. In celebration of Black History Month and the Grammys this Sunday, we put together a list of 25 albums every Black woman needs in the soundtrack to her life, from Mary J. Blige's "My Life" to Lauryn Hill’s “The “Miseducation of Lauryn Hill."
One of the most beautiful breakup albums we’ve heard in a while. On “21” Adele is ready to “Set Fire to the Rain” but not before asking her lover “Don’t You Remember” the good times. She even wishes she could find ‘Someone Like You" in her near future. What girl hasn’t wished for that? Adele is at once vulnerable and empowered on this already classic album — expected to clean up at this year’s Grammys.
