Sen. Kamala Harris curated a 45-song playlist for Black Music Month

June is African-American Music Appreciation Month, and in that spirit, Senator Kamala Harris released a public playlist on Spotify with 45 songs on it.

“Our nation has an indelible soundtrack, songs that have become anthems recognized across the world,” Harris said in a statement to HuffPost. “Much of that soundtrack is inspired and informed by the vast contributions of African-American artists in jazz, R&B, rap, hip-hop, and beyond.”

“No matter where you are from or what you look like, music is a bond that can bring us all together,” she said. “To celebrate African-American music is to dance, sing, and even march to the rhythms that have long served as vehicles for honesty, inspiration, struggle, success and joy.”

The playlist covers everything from hip-hop to soul, from Stevie Wonder to Chance the Rapper. It’s got Nina Simone, it’s got Prince, it’s got Beyonce, it’s got James Brown, and it’s got Lauryn Hill. Basically, it’s got something for whatever mood you’re in and something for every age.

Check out the playlist, “#AAMAM – All Time Favorites,” and enjoy these picks from one of the coolest Senators around.
